FOR HONOR® MARCHING FIRE INTRODUCES ARCADE, A NEW PVE MODE

Marching Fire Now Available for Pre-Order
Get Starter Edition Free on Steam from August 22 to August 27

Köln, Germany — August 21, 2018 — Today, during gamescom, Ubisoft announced that For Honor® Marching Fire™ will include Arcade, a new PvE mode that offers unlimited content and infinite replayability. For Honor Marching Fire is the game’s most ambitious update to date and includes both exciting free content, with a brand new PvP mode, Breach, and a number of new features and game enhancements, as well as a paid expansion. The update will launch on October 16 for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, and Windows PC.

Arcade introduces a whole new way to play For Honor, either solo or in two player online co-op. In Arcade, players fight battles that feature increasingly challenging waves of enemies with different objectives and modifiers, offering infinite replayability with new challenges every time. This quick play mode is the perfect chance for all players to explore new Heroes and level them up before taking them into PvP, with all rewards earned during this mode carrying over to multiplayer. Players who own Marching Fire will also be able to invite any friend to join them in co-op, even if that friend does not own the Marching Fire expansion.

Seasoned warriors who own the For Honor base game can now pre-order the Marching Fire expansion for $29.99, available as a digital edition only, which grants access to Arcade and, at launch, will immediately unlock the four new heroes from the new Wu Lin faction (the Tiandi, the Jiang Jun, the Nuxia and the Shaolin). Players who pre-order the Marching Fire expansion will receive the exclusive Wu Lin pack, which includes 1 Elite Outfit for all Wu Lin Heroes, valued at 28,000 steel (a $25 value).

All players will be able to recruit the new Wu Lin Heroes using in-game Steel after the initial early access period, as well as access the 4v4 castle siege mode, “Breach”, for free. Additionally, all players will benefit from free graphical enhancements that will improve the in-game textures, introduce a revamped lighting system and new sky gradients and also provide further quality of life improvements including an updated user interface and a new responsive dialog system.

While pre-orders are currently not available for For Honor: Marching Fire Edition, which includes the base game and the Marching Fire expansion, those who do not own For Honor yet will be able to pre-order a physical edition on September 4 $59.99.

The For Honor Standard Edition is also part of Xbox’s Games with Gold and is available for free for Xbox Live Gold members until September 15.

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios**, For Honor offers an engaging campaign and thrilling multiplayer modes. Players embody warriors of the three Great Factions – the bold Knights, the brutal Vikings and the deadly Samurai – fighting to the death on intense and believable melee battlefields. The Art of Battle, the game’s innovative combat system that puts players in total control of their warriors, allows them to utilize the unique skills and combat style of each hero to vanquish all enemies who stand in their way.

    nostradamus @Moonwalker: I give a *laughs* to Squenix for letting CD keep going at Tomb Raider after Eidos shit decision. They never knew how to go over it. when they did, they just re-tooled a preexisting game. (1 Day ago)

    Moonwalker I am one of the rare cases that absolutely loved Rise of the Tomb Raider. And I give a fu to Square for taking CD away from it. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker real good reason. A good amount of weaponry but very few opportunities to really use them. Graphics great though. I did enjoy the tombs and exploration but I feel CD should have finished the trilogy. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Finishing Shadow of the Tomb Raider yesterday. Mixed bag. Lots of inconsistencies, weird design choices, forgettable story, balance between combat and exploration is BAD, skills system exists for no (1 Day ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @MrWhite: so what you are sayin'... they exacerbated the huge flaw of a SHIT/TIER concept for a rapped franchise. the game(s) were a TURD, and a 4/10 is being benelovent. CD should be stripped from TR (2 Days ago)
