Keep in mind For Honor, Ubisoft’s vikings-vs-knights-vs-samurai multiplayer melee game? It has been a while since we final gave it a glance, however listed below are a few issues about it that you just would possibly discover helpful as we speak: One, sure it’s nonetheless working (and has truly added a pair of further factions, the Wu Lin and Outlanders), and two, it is free to play for every week.

For Honor is a hell of a factor. It was revealed in 2015, appeared moderately good when it launched in 2017, and really shortly tanked. Six months after it launched, we took an in-depth take a look at where all of it went mistaken: It wasn’t fairly a eulogy nevertheless it was awfully shut, noting that though Ubisoft was making an effort to show issues round, the game had taken such a battering by that time that “it would already be too late” to put it aside.

And but that is precisely what occurred. Six years later, For Honor’s common concurrent participant depend on Steam alone bounces across the 3,000 mark, which is not unhealthy for a game this age and solely a part of the whole: For Honor can be on Epic Video games Retailer, Ubisoft, and consoles. It is a good comeback story, and a modest however much-needed vivid spot for Ubisoft.

Which brings us to the purpose. For Honor is having a free week, which truly started yesterday (July 27) and runs till August 3. The free week covers the total game and is offered on all platforms and PC storefronts worldwide, with a handful of unlucky exceptions that adjust by platform.

You probably have an particularly good time bashing skulls and smashing faces and wish to keep it up together with your brutish conduct previous the free week, you can even choose up For Honor on a budget at once: It is on sale for 80% off on all editions on Steam and Epic.
