For Honor adding new training mode in free update

On April 19th, For Honor will add a new training mode as part of a free update, giving players a fresh way to practice and perfect their skills with the Art of Battle combat system. Added as part of For Honor’s Season 5, the new training mode will replace the existing one with new tutorials and challenges intended to teach beginners the basics and help veterans sharpen their skills.

The new features offer a chance to learn the game’s controls in the Apprentice Trials, practice advanced techniques in the Warrior Trials, or improve your skills with (or against) any Heroes or move sets that might be giving you trouble in the Arena Training mode. There’s also a scoring system to give players the chance to measure their progress, and Training Media, an in-game library of video tutorials on the Faction War, different game modes, and other features.

The new training mode is part of the ongoing support of For Honor, which is now in its second year and recently added dedicated servers across all platforms in addition to a host of improvements and updates, including Hero rebalancing. For Honor is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC; for more on the game, check out our previous For Honor coverage.
