For Honor, LawBreakers, and Squad Free This Weekend

In addition to the LawBreakers free weekend and the Squad free weekend, here's a reminder that the For Honor free weekend Ubisoft announced last week is also now underway. The post from the time has the details:

If you have yet to play For Honor and want to give it a try before the launch of Order & Havoc, Ubisoft is offering a For Honor Free Weekend on all platforms. Running November 9 through November 12, the Free Weekend grants access to all of the game’s modes, including its five multiplayer options, the campaign (playable solo or with a friend), and the diverse roster of Heroes up through Season 3. All progress from the Free Weekend carries over to the full version of the game, which will also be on sale with discounts up to 60% during over the weekend. Additional details, including start times, can be found at the For Honor Free Weekend site.

Injustice 2 Adding Ninja Turtles and More

WBIE announces plans for Fighter Pack #3 for Injustice 2, the DC Comics fighting game. This will add The Atom and The Enchantress, and will also tap heroes from a different comic company with the addition of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These heroes are part of the Ultimate Edition of the game as well as the Ultimate Pack upgrade for the standard edition, and they will also be offered individually. The PC edition of the game is expected next week, and word is all console DLC will be available for purchase. This trailer offers a look, and here are more details:

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment today released a new trailer unveiling the next three DLC characters coming to Injustice 2 in Fighter Pack #3 – DC characters The Atom and Enchantress, and Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Players who have purchased the Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition, the Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack, or the Injustice 2 Fighter Pack #3 will have early access to each of the three new fighters before they are available a la carte.

The Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition and the Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack include a total of nine additional playable characters; three Premiere Skins that transform select fighters into alternate characters with new looks, voices and dialogue; and two exclusive Gear Shaders that enable players to customize the look of their roster with alternate color themes. The Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition is available now for $99.99 for the PlayStation®4, Xbox One X and Xbox One. Players who have already purchased the standard edition of the game can get all of the same content in the Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack for $39.99, also for the PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.

Injustice 2 will be coming to PC (Steam and the Microsoft Store) on Nov. 14, with all previously released DLC for console available for purchase. Hellboy will be available for PC players at a later time.

Diablo III Season 12 Underway

Battle.net announces that Season 12 for Diablo III is now underway, offering new incentives and rewards for replaying the action/RPG again. This previously posted preview has all the details on what this involves, and here's part of the overview:

Season Journey Rewards
If you’ve been playing the past few Seasons diligently and reached Conqueror in the Season Journey each time, you’ve accrued a few extra stash tabs. Players who have not yet earned a total of four stash tabs via the Season Journey can still unlock an additional one by completing the following tasks at the Conqueror tier:

  • Complete a Torment XIII Rift in under 5 minutes
  • Complete Greater Rift 60 solo
  • Kill Greed on Torment XIII
  • Kill Spider Queen on Torment XIII in under 15 seconds
  • Reforge a Legendary or Set item
  • Augment an Ancient item with a Level 50 or greater Legendary Gem
  • Level three Legendary Gems to 55
  • Complete two Conquests

Seasonal Conquests
Speaking of Conquests, we’re rotating those, too! Love going fast while killing things? Boss Mode and Worlds Apart will be making a return. On A Good Day and I Can’t Stop are also available, if leveling Legendary Gems is more your thing. If you’d rather max out your kill count with Cursed Chests, Curses! and Stars Align will be right up your alley. Those who enjoy seeing how far they can go without Set Items will get a kick out of The Thrill and Super Human. Finally, if you’re keen to show off your mastery of various Class Sets, Years of War and Dynasty will be available for you to attempt once more.

Out of the Blue

Today is Veteran's Day here in the U.S., so here's a salute to vets and their kin. Today is also Armistice Day, marking the 99th anniversary of the end of the first World War. I wonder if next year this will get attention due to the centennial? I imagine not, as it seems the outbreak of World War II 20 years later did a lot to remove the luster from the end of World War I.
