For Honor In Stores Now
Yesterday, while many were getting flowers and chocolates, Ubisoft released For Honor a game about sharing the experience of war with your friends in brutal melee combat.
For Honor’s meta-game, Faction War, the persistent cross-platform conflict between the Knights, Vikings and Samurai, will continue to drive player engagement post-launch. Players begin by pledging their sword to the faction of their choice. Every multiplayer battle in For Honor impacts the world as players earn War Assets based on their personal performance in matches. These War Assets can be deployed and spent helping players conquer and defend territories. Every match makes a difference, as all players contribute to the glory of their faction during each 10-week competitive multiplayer season. Once the season ends, all For Honor players will receive in-game rewards based on the rank of their faction. At the end of each season the Faction War resets and resumes after an off-season period.
Additional content including new Heroes, maps, modes and gear will also be released across three seasons following launch. Season Pass holders will receive an early access to some elements of this post-launch content.
