It’s been a busy week for Xbox One games fans, what with the launch of Microsoft’s new upgraded console.
But while gazes will be firmly fixed on the Xbox One X, there’s a new Games with Gold November bonus all fans might be interested in.
For Honor will be hosting a free weekend beginning today, and continuing until around 8am on November 13 for all players with an Xbox Live Gold membership.
That’s on top of all the other free games launched this month through the Games with Gold program.
As confirmed by Ubisoft, this free weekend includes access to all the content released for the game thus far, which means every multiplayer mode (playable versus human players or bots), the full campaign (playable solo or with a co-op ally), and the chance to build up any of the game’s 16 heroes, including the new heroes released in previous seasons (who are unlockable for 15,000 Steel each).
“Haven’t chain-hooked an opponent as the Shinobi or brandished the brutal claymore of the Highlander? You’ll be able to do so from November 9-12, providing you have an active Xbox Live Gold subscription,” a message from Ubisoft explains.
“And if you want to stay in the fight for the launch of Season Four, Ubisoft will be offering discounts of up to 60% off digital For Honor content through the Microsoft Store.”
This is all in anticipation for the buildup for the launch of For Honor Season 4.
Two new characters and two new modes are being released on November 14 for the unique fighting title.
Both heroes will be released for Season Pass holders on November 14, and will be available for all other players to unlock on November 21 for 15,000 Steel each.
You can find details on all the new updates below:
NEW PLAYABLE CHARACTERS:
The Aramusha: ‘A hybrid hero, wielding two katanas to strike swiftly and deflect their opponents’ blows.
‘Donning an iconic low-brimmed hat, the Aramusha is quick to punish any opponents who misstep.
The Shaman: ‘Wields two blades, a hatchet and a dagger, and uses them with deadly precision. She’s an assassin hero, and her speed is complemented by an aggressive moveset that sees her pouncing on enemies like a wild beast and gaining strength when her opponents are actively bleeding. ‘
Tribute: ‘A 4v4 objective-based mode, in which players fight to claim three offerings and return them to their team’s shrines.
‘Each of your three shrines will activate a different buff for your team, and choosing which shrine to place your offering in can tip the scales for your team. Will you juice your team’s attack power? Bestow a regenerating shield on your allies? Or reveal the enemy players’ positions for your whole team to see?
‘You’ll need to defend your shrines, hunt down offerings in the field, and steal from the enemy team’s shrines if you hope to claim victory in Tribute.’
Ranked Dominion mode: ‘Available following the launch of Season 4, you and your team of heroes can rise through the ranks and earn glory for all to see (as well as some sweet in-game loot to boot). ‘
