For Honor Details Free Updates Coming Alongside Marching Fire Expansion

For Honor Details Free Updates Coming Alongside Marching Fire Expansion

For Honor surpasses 15 million players ahead of expansion launch.

For Honor is getting a major update soon when the Marching Fire expansion comes out on October 16. Regardless of the expansion, all For Honor players will receive a pretty major, free update on the same day with a brand-new PvP mode and graphical update.

Marching Fire is the new expansion meant to relaunch For Honor. It'll include four new Wu Lin heroes that will be exclusive to the expansion for two weeks before they can be purchased with in-game currency. There's also a new 4v4 Breach Mode that lets you siege a castle and take it over. The expansion also adds a single-player or co-op online Arcade Mode with unique challenges and rewards.

The Marching Fire free update will include the PvP mode as well as the graphical overhaul which sees locations and areas in the game revamped with new graphics and textures. You can see the breakdown in the trailer below.

Ubisoft also announced that For Honor surpassed 15 million players ahead of the Marching Fire launch. This is probably due to the effort to fix many of the quality of life issues early adopters had with For Honor, including the lack of dedicated servers and other balance issues. Ubisoft's live-service model in For Honor is like the one in Rainbow Six: Siege which also saw a huge boost in popularity as improvements were made.

For Honor first came out on February 14, 2017 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. For Honor was a unique, multiplayer-only PvP game where players would fight as different warriors across time periods and culture such as Vikings or Samurai. While it was initially popular, issues like servers and matchmaking slowed the game down, and those problems were later fixed.

There will be a For Honor stream on October 11 that will go further in-depth with the Marching Fire expansion.
