Do we know if this one will be under the same nondisclosure agreement as the last alpha? Would really like to see the state of the game for myself if i don't get invited to join.

Perhaps we'll have an announcement this weekend or next week if we're lucky. Else Eiddard's predictions may be true.


About the Open Beta, I hope they announce it, but I don't think it will be playable until the E3 ends, If they do announce an open beta I would expect it to be 2 weeks - 1 month after the E3, since it would be a pain to have part of your development team attending and managing the E3 while having to handle an Open Beta.

soon could mean next week, could mean 3 months from now. I've been waiting since the last alpha so I ain't gonna hold my breath lol

I would expect it to be under NDA, but I have no way to confirm that. My thinking is that they might to more than one round of testing, and if so than the first at least being under NDA would, to me, be most logical.

In my experience of testing alphas are almost always under NDA.

I completely understand why it would be necessary, its just a shame as someone who didn't get into the first alpha i know how frustrating it can be, i know that there will be a handful of people who get into the alpha that wont necessarily give feedback or even want to play the game as bad as others. Maybe something like a developers alpha vlog or stream will help gain more feedback and allow those who don't get in but really wanted to see the game and what they can expect from it. Having the developers produce the content would also allow for content moderation so that nothing gets out that they wouldn't want to.

Hehe Sir_Beefing. This isn't about the game so I can speak about it, we had a dude complain about the game on the forum, he was in the Alpha, oh man the guy claimed the game is bad and his only reason for that opinion was that he had a mental disability. Now how does it feel when someone like that gets into the Alpha of a game you are excited for, but you don't.

And here I was going to sleep...
Now I'm not even tired anymore!

Hope I'm getting in again... So excited to feel the changes they've made..
Maybe even change my thoughts about revenge.

I'm also hoping that they make it multi platform because while I can respect that it is probably much more easier for PC only. I think it cuts a significant portion of your audience.

I think it's logical to bring you guys in since we're not thaaat far away from release.
And surely they won't leave their new moderator out in the cold, right...? :)

Ugh.. Feeling goosebumps all over! Very exciting news!

I seriously hope they do more than one platform because my laptop has such a terrible graphics card so I can't run games like this well, if at all. If not, seriously hoping for no NDA.

Ha, I don't blame you. They kept saying soon months and months before E3 2016. This is a much different situation, however, as we know what to expect and they wouldn't tease us for months like that.

I am very inspired by the game. been waiting for something like that and do not mind waiting, but the imminent opening of the application of alpha testing, soon it in a few hours for me. although I understand that this is not true but it is not clear on what time frame goes peq, At least I hope that this year.
it seems to me unfair to make such statements,
but with the condition the name of the game and more ironic.

Just messed up a bit when going on reddit... Bad search made "alpha invites going out" pop up. My heart skipped a beat and I went to check my mail. Nothing. Then went back to see it was last year's invites.
So much happiness and sadness at once...

I know :) Several times I've came across that thread on For Honor reddit and then was sad to see it was last years post.

Who will be invited to the Alpha test ? Will there be any criteria? It will be taken activity in the forum ?

MrJokerrr, from the last alpha test I can say it will be. People that signed up get a chance, if you are a dev or if you are very active in the community a forum moderator might or might not ask you for your Uplay details (Not password but **** like email) and that might or might not get you on some sort of a list to get into the test. ;)

Funny thing is, I had a similar experience the other day. I remember browsing the Reddit and seeing people discussing the alpha. I was thinking "When did all of this happen? Did I miss something?", and realized it was from last year XD

Despite the fact that I am an active user forum and, unfortunately, I did not receive an invitation for the last alpha test. I hope that this time I receive an invitation .

All this chat about the alpha got me thinking, does anyone have any idea what will be in the alpha? is it just going to be a multiplayer one like last alpha?

If we get to test in July that's good enough for me.

Btw, all previous alpha testers and for honor star players get access to the alpha. If anyone doesn't, just message space elephant and he'll get you taken care of.

Though it makes sense we'd be in the next one, I can't recall reading this anywhere.
Been asking myself this for a while now, huge thanks!

I am assuming that they will be letting through a much larger quantity of testers if all the previous tester will get re-invited?
