a For Honor
free weekend will get underway one week
from today, offering the chance to draw your sword in the melee combat game.
The PC free period gets underway on May 3rd at 1:00 pm EDT, and
will end on May 6th at 4:00 pm EDT, and word is preloads will be offered starting on
May 1st. They say the game will be on sale for 75% off starting the third, as
well. They posted a video to accompany the news, but this is broken at the moment
(it may eventually show up
). They offer this outline of all they have planned for this:
Today, Ubisoft® announced that For Honor will be free to play from May 3 to
May 6 on current-gen consoles and Windows PC. Players will have 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
the up to 75% off discount on For Honor in 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
As a kickoff to the Free Weekend, players can tune-in to For Honor’s Warrior’s
Den livestream on May 3rd at 9:00am PT/ 6:00pm CET on twitch.tv/ForHonorGame and
participate in Twitch Drops. Players are guaranteed three scavenger crates after
an hour of watching the stream and for every 10 minutes they will be entered for
a chance to win 100,000 Steel*. For more information on how to activate Twitch
