“Year 8” of Ubisoft’s For Honor begins this week

For Honor, still kicking with the debut of Year 8, is set to launch standalone stories based on every faction, plus new maps and more.

On your honor

Yes, it’s true, For Honor is still very much kicking here in 2024. Launched back in 2017, the multiplayer action game sets players in the boots of a medieval warrior from different factions, vying for total dominance. If you’re still rocking and rolling with the title, you might want to check out the new Year 8 content, which sounds set to deliver some big time new stuff.

Year 8, Season 1 will be the first of four new seasons with new stories to tell (among other things). You’ll see one of those tales in the trailer below, but each of the new stories will center on a special weapon that’s unique to each of the game’s factions. That’s in addition to a pair of “Converted Maps”, and new skins and modes.

Also, for a game that’s the better part of a decade old, it’s still looking pretty darned good.

Season 1, titled The Sword of Ashfeld, will tell a story focused on the Knights and a legendary sword, Valor’s Edge. Passed down from an empire of Knights that stood mighty before the Cataclysm, it’s now carried into battle by its last wielder, the Unsung Knight – first glimpsed in For Honor’s 2016 story campaign trailer – who fights to protect the weak and appears as a new Skin for the Warden.

Ubisoft press release

Year 8’s Season 1 dawns with “Forged in War” this week, on March 14th. The content should be available for all versions of the game, which is out now for the PC, as well as PlayStation and Xbox platforms.
