Ubisoft has announced that For Honor will be offering a free weekend for all platforms from August 10th. From today you can pre-load the game on PlayStation 4 and Uplay, and once the free weekend hits you will be granted full access to For Honor’s features for the duration. This includes the five multiplayer modes and a campaign you can play solo, or drag a friend along for the ride in online co-op.
If this wasn’t enough, For Honor’s third season and biggest update thus far “Grudge and Glory” arrives following the free weekend, beginning on August 15th for all platforms. Grudge and Glory brings new heroes, maps, ranked play, and myriad gameplay updates, which will be free at the start of the season for all players. The Highlander and Gladiator will be free from August 15th, for those holding the season pass, and those without will have the opportunity to unlock them in-game from August 22nd for 15,000 Steel.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios, For Honor offers an engaging campaign and thrilling multiplayer modes. Players embody warriors of the three Great Factions – the bold Knights, the brutal Vikings and the deadly Samurai – fighting to the death on intense and believable melee battlefields. The Art of Battle, the game’s innovative combat system that puts players in total control of their warriors, allows them to utilise the unique skills and combat style of each hero to vanquish all enemies who stand in their way. For Honor will continue to grow and improve with a new season launching in November alongside plans to introduce dedicated servers further down the development schedule.
