The launch trailer for For Honor‘s Marching Fire expansion celebrates the release of the game’s largest content drop to date.
Headlining the expansion are the four new Wu Lin heroes. While every For Honor player can eventually purchase these heroes with in-game credit, only those that pick up the expansion get two-week early access to them at no in-game cost. The heroes include the guandao-wielding Jiang Jun, the hook blades–wielding Nuxia, the staff-wielding Shaolin, and the doa blade–wielding Tiandi. All four heroes will be locked to any player without the expansion until October 30th, after which they can be purchased for 15,000 Steel each.
These heroes (or any others) can be taken into the game’s new Arcade PvE mode, which is exclusive to expansion owners. Arcade is made up of randomly generated challenges in which players face off against AI-controlled enemies under various special conditions, with better rewards awaiting those who face its higher difficulties. The mode can be played solo or with a friend, and only one of the players needs to own the expansion for both to take it on in co-op.
While only expansion owners can host rounds in the new Arcade mode, all players can take part in the game’s new competitive Breach mode that’s dropping with Marching Fire. Breach is an asymmetric attack/defend mode in which one team is trying to lay siege to a castle and take out its commander, while the other team uses the castle’s defenses to try and stop them.
The three main content pillars of Marching Fire are all teased in the expansion’s launch trailer below.
For Honor‘s Marching Fire expansion is out today, October 16th, going for $29.99. Along with the expansion comes a free update to the game, including graphical improvements, a victory celebration screen, and other new features and quality-of-life changes.
