For Honor


 

A new update arrives for For Honor today, April 19th, on PC and consoles that adds a new way for players to hone their skills.

The all-new training mode offers ways for both new and veteran players to improve via trials, the arena, and tutorials. The Apprentice Trials and the Warriors Trials teach players various techniques and grade them on their performance. While the Training Arena lets players create custom practice sessions against specific Heroes or move sets. Finally, Training Media offers numerous videos that go over game modes, the faction war, and various in-game features.

“We are always looking for new ways to improve how new players learn the mechanics of For Honor as well as new ways for our active players to master their main Heroes or learn new Heroes,” Ubisoft explained.

The update also includes three new maps that will be available in Duel, Brawl, and Training Mode: The Ring, The Pit, and The Sanctuary. Details about each map, courtesy of Ubisoft, can be found below:

The Ring

  • Carved from Mount Ignis rock and overlooking mountainous vistas, the once forgotten arena has since been restored to its former glory. Nobility and commoners alike gather at The Ring to savour the thrill of warriors at the pinnacle of their craft.
  • Available in Duel, Brawl and Training Arena

The Pit

  • Deep and imposing, The Pit has hosted many ancient Viking rituals. Encircled by a braying and drunken crowd that can inspire or demoralize, The Pit represents the very warriors that fight within the intimidating walls: brutal, passionate and determined.
  • Available in Duel, Brawl and Training Arena

The Sanctuary

  • Located at the heart of the Myre is an ancient sanctum, a solitary place untouched by the ravages of war. Set in the shade of an indomitable fortress, warriors have journeyed from distant lands to discover their destiny in the fabled Sanctuary.
  • Available in Duel, Brawl and Training Arena

Other changes include the addition of custom controller layouts, a latency display on the scoreboard, and numerous balance changes to heroes. Read the full patch notes here.

For Honor is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
