For Honor Ubisoft has announced that For Honor will be holding an open beta for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 starting on February 9 and ending on February 12. The beta will include the Duel, Brawl, Dominion, and a new ‘Elimination’ mode that was not playable during last week’s closed beta. Elimination is described as a “best-of-five series of four-on-four matches with no respawns,” according to Ubisoft.
Final Fantasy XV The First DLC for Final Fantasy XV will be titled “Episode Gladio” and it will be launching on March 28. The publisher also announced that prior to the release of the Gladio DLC, Final Fantasy XV players will be able to outfit their heroes in Power Rangers-style Magitek Exosuits on February 21. The Exosuits will be available as part of an upcoming free “Booster Pack” and a paid “Booster Pack +.” The free version is available to all who own FFXV, while the plus option is exclusive to those with a Season Pass. These Mighty Morphin’ costumes will make Noctis, Gladiolus, Prompto and Ignis invincible for 30 minutes. Once the half hour is up, the suits require a 24-hour recharge before they can be used again. Word has gone out that the power ranger suits will be delayed due to Square Enix believing the costumes to be somewhat similar to the power ranger costumes from the upcoming movie and they believe it could cost problems. Players will have to wait just a bit more to get these cool costumes.
