Ubisoft Announces For Honor Season Pass and Future Content

For Honor's future brings heroes, maps, and more.

20

For Honor is getting a season pass as announced by Ubisoft today. The For Honor Season Pass will include early access to new heroes, elite outfits, and a Day One War Pack which includes emblems, emotes, three crates, and XP Boosts. Ubisoft stated that it would be supporting the game by releasing free content across three Seasons which would include new maps, modes, and gear, some of which will be available to season pass holders early.

All For Honor Season Pass content, except for the elite outfits and six additional heroes, will be available upon the game's release. The game will get two new heroes per Season of Faction War. While Season Pass holders will get early-access to the six heroes as they make their debuts, after the early-access period, all players will have to purchase the new heroes using the Steel in-game currency.

On launch day, For Honor Season Pass holders will get a Day One War Pack. The Day One War Pack contains:

  • An exclusive sunbeam effect on emotes.
  • Three unique emblem outlines.
  • Three scavenger crates that players can unlock for additional gear.

Thirty days of Champion Status that will allow players to give XP boosts to their friends and receive more XP from crafting as well as additional loot at the end of matches.

The For Honor Season Pass comes with the Gold Edition of the game or can be purchased separately. You can start playing For Honor during the Open Beta that runs from February 9-12, or when it releases on February 14, 2017.

      Based on The Division's season pass I don't think I will every buy another UBISOFT season pass ever.

        Why is that

          I think people hoped / assumed that the DLC would provide more story content but instead it's different game play modes. A survival DLC, a PvP DLC, and a random mission generator for co-op.

          Beyond that, there's the standard issue and conflict where balancing PvP impacts the fun people are having (or think they're having) in PvE and players get tired of having to grind for new equipment to regain the effectiveness they had prior to the previous game balancing efforts.

            I understand that complaint, but at the same time find it laughable. It's an mmo lite. There's going to be balance changes all the time.
            The lack of story is the more justified complaint. I believe everything they've done has improved the replay ability. Or at least attempted (underground dlc).
            The 1.6 update brought a lot of life to the game. And it was even free!

              Even more reason to ignore their shitty season passes.

                If you already have your mind set why bother?

                  You just called LC's reasons laughable and then said the thing that brought life back into the game was free, not the DLC.

                  So why bother with the season pass again?

                    It brought life back to the game. The survival mode brought a huge amount of replay ability. Just because there's QOL improvements does not mean the game can be played for hours again. The DZ is still limitless, but that doesn't make the countless hours I've already put into it forgotten.
                    Did you buy or play the dlc?

                      I watched JT play survival. It seemed interesting but nothing I want. The crew he runs with said the other DLC Underground? was not good, and the upcoming one is pure PVP so that's not great unless you only play The Division for PVP.

                        Also correction it was 1.5 that was all the features. The thing is aside for the last DLC it was somewhat announced. But you have to appease to everyone. The first DLC was pure pve, second a mix, and it would make sense that the third would be PvP. I know people that don't do any pve and just stick to the DZ; aside for maybe the mixed PvP/pve of survival.

                          Which goes back to my original statement. Skip the season pass and just pick up the DLC that appeals to you.

                            Which isn't wrong at all. I just don't think it's a poor decision if you enjoy all the content from the base game. I didn't buy the season pass. I have just bought the first 2 DLCs

                    I think the main reason someone might want this season pass is to get a leg up on the competition by trying the new content out before the general public. I guess it depends on how competitive you are.

                      Knowing more about the upcoming classes would be useful for those who play competitively, but no way am I at that level or want to be.

                      Im glad gamemodes and maps will be free. That's the best.

                        It's really not that hard of a battle system. After the few days of the closed beta, I felt I was doing OK. I like fighting games though.

                        I might consider the pass, just because I think it's a game I'd play a lot. You can jump in and run a few matches in an hour and then move on to something else.

                          Check this guy out. He is crazy good. The mindgames he does and the depth of fighting that goes on made me rethink the whole system.

                            I was dueling and brawling with the Conqueror (flail and shield) and there's tons of situational awareness in the maps. Taking higher ground at the tops of stairs makes a difference, which is something you rarely see. Of course, you can mess people up by shoving them off ledges or into fire and steaming geysers. Don't battle on a bridge if you're up against classes that shove.

                            Stamina matters too, although I wish it'd be even more strict, since you can really hurt someone out of stamina.

                            You definitely have to change your play strategies depending on what class you're up against because there's a large variety of strengths and weaknesses of each class.

                            Really top notch gameplay. I don't play lots of online games but this one is day one for me after that beta.

                    Did you play the DLC?
                    Guess my post failed to deliver, but my reference to breathed life into the game it just brought tons of QOL changes. If someone loves repetition they could play the same content, but 1.6 specifically complemented the survival DLC. I wouldn't be still playing the game if it wasn't for it.
                    I could give you an analogy of destiny and people who didn't buy TTK, but I don't think you've played.

                The Season Pass for Rainbow Six Siege is totally optional, and totally worth it

        All For Honor maps, modes and additional classes are going to be released for free to all. The season pass just gives early access and some extra in-game currency and items.

        Actual paid DLC is rumored to add an entire new faction.

          So they are following the path of Rainbow Six? Because I'm a huge fan of that!

      I am so pumped about this game. Won't but season pass though. I'll wait to see what happens since Ubisoft.
