LONDON, UK – APRIL 26TH, 2018 – Today, Ubisoft® announced that For Honor will be free to play from May 3rd to May 6th on current-gen consoles and Windows PC. Players will have full access to the full game, including all multiplayer modes, a campaign playable solo or with a friend in online co-op, and the original roster of 12 unique heroes.

The free weekend presents a unique opportunity for both new and returning players to join the battlefield after more than a year of updates were made to For Honor. With the introduction of five seasons worth of content and the recently deployed dedicated servers, players will be able to experience the most stable and balanced version of the For Honor experience.

The For Honor team will also re-introduce the Warrior Training Program, an initiative that will reward existing and new players who work together, during the free weekend. Seasoned warriors who complete five matches while grouped with Free Weekend players (who do not own the game) will receive two weeks of revamped Champion Status, valued at 8,000 Steel, which will deliver even more XP boosts to players and their team as well as more loot following a match.

Those who want to continue their time on the battlefield can take advantage of up to 75% off discounts on For Honor on all digital stores before May 15 and keep their progress from the free weekend. For all details on the For Honor free weekend, please visit www.forhonorgame.com/freeweekend .

As a kickoff to the Free Weekend players can tune-in to For Honor’s Warrior’s Den livestream on May 3rd at 5pm UK time on twitch.com/ForHonorGame. Players are guaranteed 3 scavenger crates after an hour of watching the stream on twitch.com/ForHonorGame and every 10 minutes they will be entered for a chance to win 100,000 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 utilize the unique skills and combat style of each hero to vanquish all enemies who stand in their way.
