Today, Ubisoft released ‘In the Battle’, a CGI video that transports viewers directly to the ground floor of a clash on the battlefield. This motion-captured, 360-degree video experience introduces viewers to the world of For Honor as Knights, Samurais and Vikings embark in perpetual conflict.
In the midst of a foggy plain, an everlasting war continues as the 3 great Factions are locked in battle. Each of them strives to rebuild their nations as they take to the frontlines in fierce close-range combat to bring glory back to their people. The 360-degree “In the Battle” experience is viewable from follow link.
Players looking to experience the thrill of ruthless melee-combat firsthand can now pre-load the For Honor open beta on current-gen consoles and PC. Available 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 characters, five different multiplayer modes and a Story mode. On February 7, 2017, at 11:00 pm CET, Ubisoft and Twitch, the world’s leading social video platform and community for gamers, will call forth the fiercest warriors to participate in War of the Factions Live – a livestreamed event that will showcase the new Elimination Mode and help decide which Faction reigns supreme.
In additional, Ubisoft revealed that the For Honor season pass 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 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
- One exclusive sunbeam effect on emotes for all Heroes

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 For Honor world. 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 an early access to some elements of this post-launch content.
