Ubisoft's medieval fighting game For Honor has gone free to claim, again. This time it’s through Uplay, and it is the Standard Edition being given away. The promotion arrives as part of the Ubisoft Store's new gamescom sale.
Those who have their eyes on freebie promotions should already have the game either through the Uplay and Steam giveaways from last year - although those were for the Starter Edition - or via the Epic Games Store's more recent giveaway.
The fighting title is currently enjoying its third year of support from Ubisoft, focused on the game's competitive multiplayer modes. There is a story campaign available, but the main brunt of the content is available on the multiplayer side. Here's how the store describes the game:
Enter the chaos of war as a bold Knight, brutal Viking, deadly Samurai or swift Wu Lin, a legendary Faction consisting of four of the greatest warriors. In For Honor, wield your blade like never before with the innovative Art of Battle combat system that puts you in total control of your warrior. Master your sword and fight in brutal, fast-paced melee combat across an engaging story campaign and groundbreaking multiplayer modes.
It looks like Starter Edition owners can also use this giveaway - if they missed the Epic one - to upgrade their game to the full Standard Edition, removing all the grind-heavy unlock mechanics and giving them any missing standard fighters.
Normally coming in at $39.99, For Honor Standard Edition can now be had for free. A Uplay account and the client is required for playing. The giveaway will come to an end on August 28, though those who miss it will probably have more chances down the road at this rate.
