For Honor: Marching Fire DLC Announced
Seems that For Honor even got some love from Ubisoft at E3 2018. How you ask? Well, Marching Fire, a new update coming to For Honor was announced. This new DLC will introduces the game’s largest post-launch content update, and includes the new Wu Lin faction, a new 4v4 PvP mode “Breach”, unlimited PvE content and more. The update is scheduled to hit on October 16th.
Available as part of the Marching Fire update are four new Heroes of the Wu Lin – a new faction inspired by ancient Chinese martial arts. The four new Heroes include the Tiandi, the Jiang Jun, the Nuxia, and the Shaolin, who have traveled from the east to escape a civil war that has consumed their homeland following the cataclysm. Each consumed by their own motivations, ranging from betrayal to personal tragedies, these Wu Lin Heroes bring a brand-new set of weaponry and fighting styles to add more versatility to the battlefield. All Wu Lin Heroes can be recruited using in-game Steel following an initial exclusivity period, which will be announced at a later date.
Players will have access to the four warriors of the Wu Lin, alongside the existing roster of 18 Heroes in a brand-new 4v4 PvP game mode, Breach. The mode will be free for all players and playable across three new maps, allowing players to live the fantasy of storming or protecting a well-fortified castle armed with ballistae and cauldrons of fire as well as archers and a heavily armored Lord looking to protect his land. Attackers and defenders must strategically maneuver the battlefield as they escort, or attempt to destroy, a battering ram to gain access to the castle.
For Honor: Marching Fire will also introduce new unlimited PvE content playable in single player and two-player online co-op. This new PVE mode will be available as part of the paid bundle, which also includes the Wu Lin Heroes. More details about the PVE content and the paid bundle will be revealed soon.
Finally, all players will also benefit from free graphical enhancements that will improve the in-game textures, introduce a revamped lighting system and new sky gradients. Further quality of life improvements include an updated user interface and a speech realization system that will give all Heroes new personalities.
