For Honor Free Weekend Coming Next Weekend Ahead of Season 4 Launch

For Honor S4 Hero

Two dangerous new heroes are coming to shake up the battlefields of For Honor when Season Four, Order & Havoc, launches on November 14. The nimble Aramusha will join the Samurai faction, and the ferocious Shaman joins the Vikings, and each hero brings new fighting styles and new strategies into play. But that’s not all that’s coming in the new season: two new maps and two new modes will be free to all players, offering new proving grounds where warriors can test their might. And to get you ready to take on these challenges, For Honor will host a free weekend beginning at 9 a.m. PT on November 9, and continuing until 11:59 p.m. PT on November 12 for all players with an Xbox Live Gold membership.

Let’s start with the heroes. The Aramusha is a hybrid hero, wielding two katanas to strike swiftly and deflect their opponents’ blows. Donning an iconic low-brimmed hat, the Aramusha is quick to punish any opponents who misstep. The Shaman wields two blades, a hatchet and a dagger, and uses them with deadly precision. She’s an assassin hero, and her speed is complemented by an aggressive moveset that sees her pouncing on enemies like a wild beast and gaining strength when her opponents are actively bleeding. Both heroes will be released for Season Pass holders on November 14, and will be available for all other players to unlock on November 21 for 15,000 Steel each.

Two free new modes are also coming with Order & Havoc. Tribute is a 4v4 objective-based mode, in which players fight to claim three offerings and return them to their team’s shrines. Each of your three shrines will activate a different buff for your team, and choosing which shrine to place your offering in can tip the scales for your team. Will you juice your team’s attack power? Bestow a regenerating shield on your allies? Or reveal the enemy players’ positions for your whole team to see? You’ll need to defend your shrines, hunt down offerings in the field, and steal from the enemy team’s shrines if you hope to claim victory in Tribute.

For Honor will also continue to expand its ranked competition with the addition of Ranked Dominion mode, which will be available following the launch of Season 4. Now you and your team of heroes can rise through the ranks and earn glory for all to see (as well as some sweet in-game loot to boot). The new heroes, Tribute mode, and two new maps (Market Town and The Gauntlet) all arrive with the launch of Order & Havoc on November 14.

To get you warmed up for the new season of For Honor, you can play for free from November 9 to November 12. This free weekend includes access to all the content released for the game thus far, which means every multiplayer mode (playable versus human players or bots), the full campaign (playable solo or with a co-op ally), and the chance to build up any of the game’s 16 heroes, including the new heroes released in previous seasons (who are unlockable for 15,000 Steel each). Haven’t chain-hooked an opponent as the Shinobi or brandished the brutal claymore of the Highlander? You’ll be able to do so from November 9-12, providing you have an active Xbox Live Gold subscription.

And if you want to stay in the fight for the launch of Season Four, Ubisoft will be offering discounts of up to 60% off digital For Honor content through the Microsoft Store. To get a taste of the new Heroes and new modes in action, tune in to the Season 4 Livestream Reveal on twitch.tv/forhonorgame on November 11.

Now’s the best time to sharpen your swords and wade into the fray. See you on the battlefield!
