Ubisoft & ESL Announce For Honor Hero Series
Ubisoft has announced the For Honor Hero Series, an international tournament program organized in partnership with ESL, taking place this summer starting July 8 across all platforms in the United States and Europe. Following the weekly competitions, 16 of the top players will participate in a live event on August 12 in Burbank where they will play for $10,000 in cash prizes.
This first For Honor Hero Series aims to take the game’s competitive landscape to a new level with an open call for players to join online weekly 1v1 Duel tournaments across the three available platforms over four weeks. Starting July 8, registered players will earn points based on their rankings following each tournament. Top players from each platform will be selected based on overall tournament standings and invited to battle in a Live Finals event where platform champions will be crowned in Burbank, CA.
The Finals will be broadcasted live on the For Honor Twitch channel (twitch.tv/forhonorgame), For Honor’s Facebook Live, as well as on Ubisoft’s YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/ubisoft), providing players the opportunity to showcase their skill on the big stage. The For Honor Hero Series will continue to grow following this first competition while listening to the community and participant feedback.
