For Honor is going free to play next weekend with rewards up for grabs

Ubisoft has announced a For Honor free weekend set to take place on both consoles and PC next month.

Players can jump into the medieval hack ‘n’ slash from May 3 – May 6 on PS4, Xbox One and PC with all the bells and whistles from the full release in tow.

You’ll have access to the full game including its solo campaign and complete collection of multiplayer modes. You can even play through things co-operatively with friends.

The original roster of 12 heroes will be available to try out across the three days, and all purchases concerning them will carry over to the full game.

This free weekend will also see the re-introduction of Ubisoft’s Warrior Training Programme, an initiative which rewards new and working players for working together.

Existing players who complete a total of five matches with newcomers will earn two weeks of ‘Revamped Champion’ status which equates to 8,000 steel in-game.

If the free weekend tickles your fancy for a bit of medieval slaughter you can pick up the digital release across all storefronts right now for 75 percent off.
