For Honor free weekend starts May 3rd

For Honor will be free to play from May 3 to May 6 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Players will have full access to the campaign, all multiplayer modes, the new training mode, and the entire original roster of 12 heroes.

If you’re a new player, the free weekend is the perfect opportunity to try out For Honor and experience more than a year’s worth of updates and free content all at once. Experienced players have reason to celebrate the free weekend as well, with the return of the Warrior Training Program. The initiative will reward existing players who group up with free weekend players for five matches together with two weeks of Champion Status, a perk which usually costs 8,000 steel that boosts your XP, loot, and salvage gains following each match.

Following the implementation of dedicated servers earlier this year, For Honor recently launched a brand new training mode. The new mode gives players a more robust way to hone their skills for the battlefield, with new tutorials and challenges meant to teach beginners and veterans alike.

As a kickoff to the Free Weekend, players can tune-in for a special For Honor’s Warrior’s Den livestream on May 3 at 9:00AM. Players are guaranteed three scavenger crates after an hour of watching the stream on twitch.tv/ForHonorGame, and every 10 minutes they will be entered for a chance to win 100,000 Steel. Be sure to link your Twitch account by visiting the official For Honor site.

Free weekend players who purchase For Honor digitally before May 15 on PS4 and Xbox One can do so at discounts of up to 67% off on PS4 and Xbox One, and up to 75% off on PC. With tons of new features and more than a year of gameplay updates, now is a great time to jump into For Honor.
