UBISOFT® ANNOUNCES FOR HONORTM SEASON PASS

Features Six All-New Heroes with Seven-Day Early Access for Season Pass Owners


SAN FRANCISCO — February 2, 2017 — Today, Ubisoft® announced that the For HonorTM Season Pass will include six all-new Heroes available seven days before they are released to all players plus additional in-game gear and 30-day Champion Status, which will give players more experience points and loot. Additional post-launch content, including new maps, modes and gear, will be available for free to all players.

The For Honor Season Pass can be purchased alongside the full game or through the Gold Edition. The contents of the For Honor Season Pass include:

• Six all-new Heroes available seven days before released to all players
• Six elite outfits to customize the new Heroes
• Day One War Pack
o One exclusive sunbeam effect on emotes for all Heroes
o Three exclusive emblem outlines
o Three scavenger crates to unlock additional gear
o 30-day Champion Status that gives XP boosts to friends, more XP from crafting and additional end-match loot

All Season Pass content, except the six post-launch Heroes and their elite outfits, will be available at launch on February 14, 2017. The new Heroes will be progressively released by batches of two at the beginning of a new Season of the Faction War – the persistent cross-platform metagame that will evolve the war across the world of For Honor. After this early-access period, these Heroes can be unlocked via Steel, the For Honor in-game currency given for completing matches and in-game challenges.

Additional free content will also be released across three Seasons following launch. This post-launch content, including new maps, modes and gear, will be available for free to all players. Season Pass holders will receive early access to some elements of this post-launch content.

Players looking to hone their skills before launch can join the For Honor Open Beta from February 9 to February 12, 2017. This beta will include the new Elimination mode, a best of five rounds four-versus-four match with no respawns. Elimination joins three additional modes playable in the open beta including Dominion, Brawl and Duel, and nine playable Heroes. At launch, For Honor will feature twelve playable Heroes and five different multiplayer modes.

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios*, For Honor offers an engaging campaign and thrilling multiplayer. Players embody warriors of the three Great Factions – the bold Knights, the brutal Vikings and the enigmatic 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 be available on February 14, 2017.

So this pretty much confirm they will use the same model as R6.

Wonder how much steel will cost the new heroes. If they go by R6 measures, they wont be hard to get with out buying the season pass.

I wonder if you'll even need to "buy" them to use them in duels, since you don't have to unlock characters in this game to use them, just to customize their gear, which is pointless in the non-objective gametypes.

I can't really understand why they are asking for 40$ for this? It is good to expand the game after launch and update it with free maps, charecters, mods, ... . but for someone who pays 40$ it has nothing. I had hope that they add some extra story mission, like Apollyon background story, but this is not good at all. I call this a Support Pass instead of Season Pass!

I feel the same way about the Rainbow Six season passes. They're not essential to the game, which clearly devalues them. That said.. the convenience of early access and boosted progression must matter enough to people to move passes. And I'm glad it does. It makes the games a more even experience for users across the board.

People will pay for cosmetics too. That's good.

So the next two factions are Greeks and Ninjas?

Looking forward to try the Ninja.

For Honor is almost entirely a PvP game. The single-player campaign was just shoehorned in it, to make it more attractive to people who don't like buying Multiplayer only games and to justify the $60 price. Though by all the previews of the single-player campaign, it's really bad and boring, a far cry from the Multiplayer mode.

If I'm not mistaken, by the previews, they made it sound like even Call of Duty and Battlefiend games had more effort, care and budget put into their single-player campaigns than For Honor, and those are for the most part bad or boring.

And that's why there's no extra story mission in the Season Pass, because it's almost entirely a PvP game. So if this one is worse than those, no need to buy the game or the Season Pass just or mostly for it.

I just read the user comments in the EuroGamer article about this news and some of them bought the R6:Siege's Season Pass because they wanted to reward the developers for making a great game and for supporting with paid, but also optional free DLCs.

I'm not a fan of COD single player.. but they put effort into those campaigns. They've been a big part of that franchise since day one. But don't get the wrong idea. I'm not disputing that this is a PVP game. I think when you consider the genre (it's a fighting game) it may have a more robust campaign than most.

I've got the gold edition back in 14 June, I'd love the idea of the game and it was something that I really liked to see in games, so I picked the Gold edition then, cause the season pass was 40$ and I thought it was going to be something really good, I didn't know it was going to be just early access and cosmetics.
again I like this kind of support like siege, but asking 40$ for this is not fair at all.

The fact that everything is free does devalue the $40 season pass. I wasn't sure this would work out for Rainbow, but it did.

Yes, here's an excerpt from the EuroGamer article, link below:

"This is a campaign that feels like an afterthought, an effort to justify the game's AAA price tag. The story is entirely inconsequential - one mission has you slaying fellow Vikings to reclaim four barrels of potatoes, for example - and after 30 minutes playtime, I'm not convinced there's much more to these characters outside of their passion for fighting and stabbing folk. I've already had my fill."

EuroGamer - For Honor feels bold, even if its single-player doesn't:

Sounds very exciting, doesn't it?! lol

yea, I like the Idea and if I know that maybe I still get that gold edition, but 40$?! it's high, really high.

and about that campaign, maybe the gameplay is not what we want to see, not much variation, but I think the story would be good enough to make you play it, and I read about previews, there were positive reviews about single player too, I think Rock-Paper-Shotgun wrote something about it, and you can find other websites too!

yea, Eurogamer didn't liked it, but I've seen their video, and I don't liked the way they previewed that, you can find some previews on RPS, GamesRadar+ and PC Gamer I think, PC Gamer told the negative side very better than eurogamer

That feels like a scattershot against fighting games. What do they think of Tekken's price?

I don't think that's fair at all. I value games for their production values, sure, but more for what I get out of them.

Of course, there are people saying both good and bad things about For Honor's Story mode, but I believe it will be a very divisive mode at best. People who like context to do things will most likely like it, while others won't.

We will only know for sure when the game comes out, but For Honor is first and foremost a PvP game. So that's why Ubisoft isn't adding new Story missions. Maybe they could add a Story mode similar to Call of Duty's Zombies mode that would allow you to play co-op in a team of 2-4, but that's highly unlikely since there's already a team mode in PvP.

I don't think you fully appreciate the passions swedes (aka once upon a time vikings) have for potatoes. It's the lifeblood of the nation.

Those are also 30 minute impressions.

I doubt it will provide meaningful context anyway. The game doesn't actually make sense :D

No one is denying that it's a PVP game.. but it's fairly common for AAA "single player" games to lack single player DLC too.

A lot of them just have content for their shoehorned multiplayer modes. That's worse.

Complaining about the value because it's PVP-first is weirdly biased against multiplayer games.

I feel like the English are not to be trusted with tales of Vikings. Too much history of the Vikings pillaging and such, you know.
Commented on 2017-02-02 22:39:59 In reply to GriftGFX
I'm sure there's more to For Honor's Story mode, but having a mission in which you as a Viking goes to slay other Viking warriors, the same people as you, just because of barrels of potatoes is utterly ridiculous.

If I'm not mistaken, killing another Viking countryman/woman outside of a dispute for power was a very serious crime punishable by death. So killing many Vikings because of only barrels of potatoes, even if they were stolen from you, would still not merit death.

Still, I get it that For Honor is not trying to be "realistic" in the portrayal of Vikings, Samurais and Knights. And that the Story is quite silly. But even the fact that hundreds of writers, artists, designers and programmers worked for many hours just to put a ridiculous quest like that into the game does raise a few eyebrows, to be honest.

As a fan of Vikings as a people, I would much rather prefer that they took a more realistic route, but that's just me. And as always, I hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. Maybe the Story mode gets much more serious down the line and we end up seeing all three factions uniting to fight their true enemies, which is what I believe it will happen.

Oh, and I wasn't complaining about PvP only games not being as valued as much as PvP games with also single player campaigns. I don't believe that. But unfortunately, that's how most people value them.

Yeah, the season pass seems not worth it at all imo,especially for that price. So tournament and ranked will come after launch. Hopefully soon to keep people interested. Im also hoping they will handle microtransactions well and not overprice everything.

I think you just need to take a look at Rainbow Six to see what they're doing.

Read what Grift wrote. If it is following R6's model, no, it probably isn't worth it.

Like TOG_Vulcan suggested, I've read many previews of For Honor after my posts. Many mention that the story is kinda silly, but that it's good in a silly way. The developers said that they wanted it to be similar to Call of Duty's ones with big and flashy set piece moments. Just gonna take it that way. Also, many other people thought the single-player campaign was good and wanted to see more of it.

Though it should be noted that it seems there were 3 different preview demos of the single-player campaign, because they mention certain missions that other previews don't mention, so I'm thinking that's what happened.

I'm still looking forward to For Honor, want to see how the combat feels. And there's a level up and a gear upgrade systems, so it might be fun if they put some crazy weapons into the mix.

I don't think the sp will be amazing but its a little weird so many people keep referring to the Eurogamer sp preview which was the most negative as the default one while the majority of previews were fairly positive. One thing i noticed is the sp definitely needs a hard mode with better ai because it looked very easy in the previews
