May the 4 is the day we toast everything Star Wars, and this year, medieval brawler For Honor is getting in on the action by turning all of its swords, axes, polearms, and assorted instruments of death into lightsabers. We have to wait until the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order release date for Respawn’s officially licensed lightsaber duelling, but For Honor’s unexpected event might help tide us over.

Ubisoft is a massive company, but the games it produces are the visions of individual people – that’s the takeaway in Playing Hard, an independent documentary about the making of sword-based brawler For Honor. The film, which Ubisoft did not produce, is now available to watch on Netflix.
For Honor’s third year of updates is nearly upon us, and now we’ve got a look at Vortiger – the titular hero introduced in the first new season of 2019. He’s one of the Black Priors, a new class joining the Knights with this update, and he does battle with a longsword and kite shield. We’ve also got the first details on the new map coming in this update, as well as some hints at what balance changes to expect.
Some kind of Assassin’s Creed crossover is coming to For Honor, according to a new teaser from Ubisoft’s official Twitter account. Details on whatever this thing is will come tomorrow, December 20 at 9:00 PST / 12:00 EST / 17:00 GMT as part of the regular Warrior’s Den livestream, but until then we’re free to speculate wildly.
For Honor is about to hit its third year, and Ubisoft has plans for another annual rollout of new content. This time it’s the Year of the Harbinger, and it’ll bring another four seasons worth of content updates, complete with new events, new maps, and new heroes across each of the factions. The initial roadmap is hazy on details, but it does include hints about what to expect. Season 1, Vortiger, will launch on January 31. That’ll offer up a new Knight hero wielding a sword and shield.
The Otherworld returns in Return of the Otherworld, For Honor’s take on this most spooky of seasons. Ubisoft’s hack and slash once again sees the living dead rise in the Endless March, and brings a new array of horrific cosmetics and emotes, including an opportunity to do what you’ve always dream – transform your head into a pumpkin, rip it off, and smash it on the ground.
When For Honor’s Marching Fire expansion comes out this week, it’ll bring with it a major graphics overhaul for the game. Ubisoft showed off the upgrade in a pre-launch livestream event this week, and the results are striking – all the game’s textures have been reworked, and the For Honor team has done a major upgrade to the lighting system.
For Honor is soon due for a major update with Marching Fire, and everyone’s getting a chance to play with the new features ahead of release. The open test more or less doubles as a free weekend before the big update, letting you get in on the action whether or not you own For Honor.
August 23, 2018 For Honor is temporarily free and setting some major records.
