'For Honor' (ALL) Season 3 Kicks Off Today

by Rainier on Aug. 15, 2017 @ 8:15 a.m. PDT

For Honor is a fast-paced, competitive experience mixing skill, strategy, and team play with visceral melee combat.

Carve a path of destruction through the battlefield fighting for guts, glory, and survival in For Honor, a new melee action game developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios.

Enter the chaos of a raging war as a knight, Viking, or samurai, three of the greatest warrior legacies. For Honor is a fast-paced and immersive experience, mixing skill with visceral, never-before-seen melee combat.

The Art of Battle, the game's innovative control system, puts you in total control of your heroes, each with distinct skills and weapons, as you annihilate all soldiers, archers, and opposing heroes who stand in your way on an intense, believable battleground.

For Honor offers an engaging campaign and thrilling multiplayer. Enjoy the full experience with friends online, in split-screen two-player co-op, or solo against AI.


For Honor Season Three, “Grudge & Glory” is available on all platforms starting today, August 15.

“Grudge & Glory” brings the largest update to For Honor to date and includes two additional heroes, two extra maps, ranked play, new customization items for all heroes as well as continuous gameplay updates. Maps and ranked play will be free for all players at the start of Season Three. The new heroes – the proud Highlander and the deadly Gladiator – will be available tomorrow for season pass holders, and for all players on August 22 for 15,000 Steel each.

For Honor Season Three “Grudge & Glory” represents the beginning of large game-changing updates currently planned in the development schedule. Additional updates include a season launching in November to introduce new features, game modes and updates as well as plans to implement dedicated servers to the game further down the road.

The never-ending war between Knights, Vikings and Samurai welcomes two new deadly Heroes into the fray:

  • Highlander (Viking Hybrid): Highlanders are patient heroes capable of switching between two different fighting forms. Their defensive form allows for counter-attacking and trading blows, while their offensive form empowers them to unleash their deadliest attacks at the expense of being able to block. Wielding the heaviest and longest sword in the game, the Highlander’s massive claymore gives them a deadly combination of strength and range.
  • Gladiator (Knight Assassin): Wielding a trident and shield, Gladiators have made a living off of killing for sport, and now bring their ruthlessness and skill to war. Equipped with little armor, they can punch their opponents to create separation to set up attacks and stuns. Their larger stamina meter and reduced cooldown times make them extremely agile and dangerous opponents.

Sentinel and Viking Village join the selection of multiplayer maps. Each map holds unique and deadly hazards never before seen in For Honor, adding a new dynamic to multiplayer matches. Viking Village’s massive rolling barrel is a dynamic hazard able to squash heroes, while a ballista gives players the opportunity to take down even the mightiest heroes from above on Sentinel.

A new level of gear rarity, legendary gear, will increase the maximum gear score from 144 to 180. Additionally, the max reputation for all heroes will increase from 30 to 40. New gear will also be added for all heroes, giving players more customization options.

Season Three will also bring competitive play to all platforms with the introduction of 1v1 duel tournaments. Competing in tournaments will allow players to vie for higher rankings, which will reset each season, and win exclusive tournament rewards. Competitive play will continue to grow later this year with the introduction of 4v4 ranked modes. In conjunction with the launch of Season Three and in order to further balance the game in preparation for competitive play, title update 1.11 will bring several additional gameplay updates. Additional gameplay adjustments to better balance offensive and defensive play styles will be further tested throughout Season 3.
