With multiple seasons behind it, For Honor is continuing to go from strength to strength – and very soon it’ll be getting stronger still as Ubisoft drop Hero’s March to all players for free.
Yep that’s right, as part of a free update hitting Xbox One, PS4 and PC gamers on May 17th 2018, Hero’s March will bring a brand new map – that of Beachhead – some major reworking to the Orochi and Peacekeeper heroes, a collection of visuals and much more.
Full details of each are as follows:
- New Map – One new map, the Beachhead, will expand the battlefield. The Beachhead will be available to all players for free and playable in all multiplayer modes except Tribute. Once a grand fortress of solitude and respite, it remains a picturesque view from afar and is a desirable stronghold for any army hoping to sway the odds of battle in their favor.
- Major Hero Reworks – In the wake of Season Five’s Hero updates and positive feedback from players, For Honor will continue to improve and harmonise the current roster as two Heroes – the Orochi and Peacekeeper – will receive major gameplay updates with Season Six. More Heroes will receive similar updates in the future as the development team continues to prioritise game balancing.
- The Visual Collection – This new feature will allow players to track all visuals they have obtained and then apply them on any gear they have in a separate in-game menu. This will help reduce the need to hoard gear for the reason of simply keeping visuals in one’s inventory, and also directly address player feedback about the lack of inventory space.
“We’re happy to see players react positively to our recent For Honor updates, which included the launch of dedicated servers and extensive Hero balancing changes, as well as new onboarding features,” said Roman Campos-Oriola, creative director of For Honor. “In addition to improving the core experience, we are also working on new content, including all-new Heroes; tune in during E3 2018 to learn more!”
With a new training mode introduced, dedicated servers in play and multitude of improvements having been made to For Honor since its initial launch, this is one game that Ubisoft are seemingly more than happy to continue pushing.
If you haven’t yet taken the plunge and got yourself a purchase of the fight between three great Factions, then you should consider taking advantage of the first Free Weekend that will feature the recently launched dedicated servers. It’s in place right now, and running until May 6th on all platforms.
