For Honor continues adding new content, years after its release. One of its bigger updates is set to release in the next month, with Arcade Mode set to debut in October. To learn more about it, Shacknews spoke to creative director Roman Campos-Oriola.

"Arcade Mode is a new PvE experience in For Honor, playable in solo and in co-op with a friend," Campos-Oriola told Shacknews. "In Arcade, you use the same character that you use in PvP. It's a shared progression. Arcade, it's made of quests, so the quest difficulty, it's linked to your gear. The higher your gear, the more difficult quests you can access. The quest is made of a series of encounters, so easier quests is four encounters, other quests it's up to six encounters. An encounter is randomly generated. It takes any map in the game, any enemies, and also it adds modifiers, either to the player or to the enemies, like more health, bleeding damage, or constantly on fire, which adds some pressure on the encounter."

Campos-Oriola describes the Arcade Mode as endgame PvE content, but the future update will offer more than this game mode. Players can also look for new heroes, new armor, new weapons, and other new features that Ubisoft will discuss at a later date.

For Honor's Arcade Mode update is set to deploy next month. Those looking to get into the game for the first time can still pick up the Standard Edition for free on Xbox One via the Games With Gold program until September 15.
