For Honor just feels like the little engine that could to me sometimes. While the game didn't seem to make a heavy impact when it initially launched last year, it's continued to have what I would consider sleeper success since its launch, building up a rather loyal fanbase of Vikings, Samurai, and Knights who love battling opposing armies over territory. Now, players who may have wanted to give For Honor a healthy try before throwing down some cold, hard cash will be able to check out the full game for free on PS4, Xbox One, and PC starting on May 3 and ending May 6.
Along with the free weekend comes a heavy discount on the game's sale price as well as a ton of incentives and giveaways that fans can get involved with. Depending on what version players purchase, they'll be able to get up 75% off the original price until May 15. According to a press release from Ubisoft, veteran players who help out free weekend players will be able to score two weeks of Champion Status as well as some XP boosts and other bonuses:
"The For Honor team will also re-introduce the Warrior Training Program, an initiative that will reward existing and new players who work together, during the free weekend. Seasoned warriors who complete five matches while grouped with Free Weekend players (who do not own the game) will receive two weeks of revamped Champion Status, valued at 8,000 Steel, which will deliver even more XP boosts to players and their team as well as more loot following a match."
Along with all the bonus incentives for participating in the free weekend, Ubisoft will also be throwing a special Twitch stream on For Honor's channel May 3 at 9:00am PT/
Once again, the For Honor free weekend will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC May 3 through May 6. Fans looking for more details on the festivities can head over to the For Honor Free Weekend Page.
