We at htxt haven’t had a chance to play For Honor yet. We have to admit that when it was first unveiled at E3 2015 it didn’t make much of an impression. In the months since, however, it’s taken our fancy – Clinton Matos is champing at the bit to get hold of it. We’ll post our impressions of the beta once it goes live and keep an eye on the site for the full review.

In the meantime, what are your thoughts? You looking forward to For Honor (even if its release date has the potential to piss off your other half)? Let us know in the comments section below or on Twitter or Facebook.
