Roman Campos-Oriola took to the stage for the Ubisoft E3 2018 to talk about For Honor and the latest content update for the game: For Honor: Marching Fire.
Starting today and until Monday, June 18, 2018, the PC Starter Edition of For Honor is available for free on UPlay. Warriors of the Chinese-based Wu Lin Faction will be joining the game. The game will also be bringing a new 4v4 multiplayer game mode called Breach where the attacking team must break through the gates of a heavily-defended castle. Have a look at the game's cinematic trailer to see this new faction in action:
Ubisoft's website for the game goes into more detail. The Wu Lin faction will consist of four different heroes: the Shaolin warrior monks who wield a mighty staff, the Tiandi who are charged with protecting royalty, the Jiang Jun who wield a guandao and lead armies, and the Nuxia who served as trained bodyguards and assassins.
The Breach game mode in For Honor: Marching Fire will contain a heavily-defended castle which has ballistae, fire cauldrons, and archers. Attackers are charged with getting into the castle by breaking down the main gates with a battering ram. The defenders, naturally, are trying to stop them in order to protect the lord of the castle. A gameplay trailer was also released alongside this announcement which should give you a feel for things:
In addition to this new content, For Honor: Marching Fire will include some neat graphical updates to the game. A new Endless PVE mode for single player or 2-person co-op will be revealed at a later date.
For Honor: Marching Fire will release on October 16, 2018. You'll have until June 18, 2018, to pick up the Starter Edition of the game for free on Uplay.
