For Honor is an Action-adventure game developed by Ubisoft Montreal. It is one of the “Game as a service” titles. Released in 2017, the game was one of the controversial releases from Ubisoft with mixed reviews from both fans and critics. People appreciated the medieval fighting concept between different factions, but the gameplay was a tough one to pick for many players. Those who were able to decipher the complexities of the combat system were able to enjoy the game at its fullest.
According to Ubisoft, the game is about to enter its year of Reckoning: year 4. Like the previous years, this year will also get four different seasons, with their own themes, rewards, and activities. Ubisoft will also release two new characters to increase to further balance the roster. These new characters will be released in season 2 and 4, respectively.
Following the bandwagon of many Battle Royales, Ubisoft is also employing a battle pass system in For Honor. The rewards were only available via random drops after the matches and via scavenger crates in previous years. However, the year of Reckoning is bringing a battle pass for everyone. Players will know what reward they will be getting at different tiers.
The Battle Pass comes in two forms, free and Premium. The free pass will be available for everyone, while players would buy the Premium pass. Additionally, Ubisoft is not endorsing that everyone must purchase the Premium Battle Pass.
Free Battle Pass will unlock, steel (in-game currency), ornaments, color swatches, and embossing. On the other hand, the Premium Pass will unlock unique rewards such as signatures, weapons, execution effects apart from the rewards already present in the Free Pass. Ubisoft also announced that the developers would keep on using the testing grounds as a balancing tool for the roaster, which will have 28 heroes at the end of the year.
Year 4 will continue to support the grass-root tournaments like the last year, and it will also support new all-access competitive programs. Lastly, the For Honor team is collaborating with renowned artists such as AJ Frena to create unique images and artworks as an effort to thank the For Honor community.
