For Honor closed Alpha the largest ever for Ubisoft
Participants spent an average of 4 hours and 38 minutes in game
Ubisoft has announced that last weekend's Alpha test for the action game For Honor drew big interest from the community.
This was Ubisoft’s largest closed alpha for any title to date, and participants spent an average of 4 hours and 38 minutes in game. Average playtime consistently increased on a daily basis, and more than a third of all active players played during three or more of the closed alpha’s four days.
There were approximately 5,577,000 executions and 89,603,900 warriors defeated during the closed alpha. That’s an average of 16 executions and 259 warriors defeated killed every second. With players joining in from all over the world, average matchmaking time for the different multiplayer modes was 20 seconds.
Demand to participate in the upcoming Beta is approximately 40% higher than any previous Ubisoft game (in the comparable pre-launch period).
For Honor is scheduled for release in February 2017 on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
