Ubisoft® has just announced that For Honor® will offer a free weekend across all platforms starting August 10. Starting this Friday, players can load up the game and try it for themselves. This free weekend is set to be available on the PS4, Xbox One and the PC. During this time, players who play the game are able to access the game’s full offering, including the singleplayer campaign and the competitive multiplayer. The game will also be offered at a discount during the time.
We reviewed the game during its release and have been very fond of it during that time. We even gave it an award! But connection problems (which would be fixed according to Ubisoft’s update pipeline) shaved away some players. However, the fact remains that For Honor is one game that everyone, if given the chance, should try. And, this IS that chance.
New players will be able to pre-load the game starting August 8 on PlayStation 4 and Uplay. In conjunction with this free weekend, there will be discounts on For Honor’s Standard and Gold Editions on all digital stores. Additionally, players who purchase For Honor during the free weekend will see all their progress carry over.

The free weekend will lead into the launch of “Grudge & Glory”, For Honor’s third season and biggest update to date. Season Three starts on August 15 across all platforms and will bring new heroes, new maps, ranked play and a wealth of gameplay updates. All maps, ranked play and gameplay updates will be free for all players at the start of the season. The new heroes, the proud Highlander and the fearless Gladiator, will be available free for Season Pass holders on August 15, while all other players will be able to unlock them in-game on August 22 for 15,000 Steel.
This weekend will also see the finals of the For Honor Hero Series, the first international For Honor tournament organized in partnership with ESL®. For Honor fans and newcomers looking to get a glimpse at top-tier competitive play can tune into the For Honor Season 3 Live Event: Grudge & Glory Reveal on twitch.tv/forhonorgame on August 13 starting 3AM UTC+8 to watch the best international players compete in a fierce 1v1 Duel tournament. Viewers will also have their first chance to witness exclusive live gameplay of the new Heroes and maps coming in Season 3.
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. 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.
