PC gamers will find no shortage of free games to play this weekend. But next weekend is looking good on the free gaming front as well, thanks to Ubisoft’s announcement that For Honor will be free to play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC May 3-6.
PS4 and PC owners will be able to pre-load For Honor on May 1 so they can hop right in the moment the moment it goes free. Per Ubisoft, here’s the time frame for For Honor’s free play weekend:
- Xbox One: May 3, 2018 at 1am PDT – May 7, 2018 at 12am PDT
- PS4: May 3, 2018 at 1am PDT – May 7, 2018 at 12am PDT
- PC: May 3, 2018 at 10am PDT – May 6, 2018 at 1pm PDT
This includes all PvP, PvE, and story modes from the full game, plus new training trials and an arena. Any progress you make in For Honor during its free weekend will carry over to the paid game, should you decide to purchase it. If you buy it between May 3-15, you’ll also save between 67-75%, depending on the version and platform.
For Honor is a melee combat game set in a medieval-style fantasy world. You can choose between 18 warriors and three classes: knights, vikings, and samurai.
From our For Honor review:
“After slaying countless foes, it’s clear the impact For Honor’s combat has had; its fundamental tenets of discipline and restraint are bestowed upon you permanently, forever changing the way you perceive a melee-combat encounter in a game. In its highest moments, For Honor is difficult to put down. Its slow combat pace and narrative shortcomings might turn off those unwilling to take the time to dive deep into what it has to offer. However, make no mistake–those who do will be rewarded with some of the most satisfying multiplayer melee fighting conceived in recent years.”
