Since July, Ubisoft has significantly ramped up promotion of their 3D weapons-based fighter For Honor: first with the Hero Series, then with their dedicated server announcements, and most recently with the reveal of Season 3 content.
Well, we can now add a free trial weekend to that list. The official Ubisoft site announcement states that during August 10th-13th, full game content will be unlocked to all players. The trial is available to all platforms (PS4, PC, XB1) and can be pre-loaded as early as August 8th. The game will also be heavily discounted during this time, up to 50% off across all platforms.
Despite suffering horrible losses to its player base, Ubisoft seems determined to get people back into For Honor. They ambitiously have plans for the game extending into 2017, but all of that hinges on the success of these next few months of Season 3.
