For Honor Gets a Tutorial Mode 14 Months After Launch

For Honor Gets a Tutorial Mode 14 Months After Launch

Finally, I can learn how to play For Honor.

Over a year after Ubisoft released For Honor is finally getting a training mode that will teach new players the ropes to Ubisoft's multiplayer hack-and-slash game.

The training modes should have arrived through a free update that went live yesterday. It features a host of robust training modes that go beyond just a simple move or combo teacher.

The training mode is split into the Apprentice Trials and Warriors Trials which will teach new players basic mechanics and advanced skills respectively. A grading system and replay feature will let players know exactly how their progress is going in the training mode.

Meanwhile, advanced players can visit the Training Arena for more custom training experiences against specific heroes or moves. So if you're particularly bedevilled by one class or move, then this is where you'll go to learn how to counter it.

Lastly, the Training Media will give players access to an in-game library of video tutorials for the different game modes and faction war. Always a pleasant surprise since I find videos the best way to learn about any one skill.

This is a big push from Ubisoft to get players to invest into For Honor again which had some problems on launch like the lack of dedicated servers. Ubisoft corrected that earlier this year by introducing For Honor dedicated servers, and now with tutorial mode Ubisoft is positioning For Honor for a comeback.

Ubisoft is working hard on creating compelling post-launch content roadmaps for all of its most popular titles. Ubisoft found great success with Rainbow Six Siege's post-launch content. For more on For Honor please check out our complete For Honor guide for our own tutorial offerings.
