Ubisoft Giving Free In-Game Rewards in For Honor to Make Up for Server Outages

Due to server outages that occurred after the game's launch, Ubisoft is offering some free in-game bonuses to compensate players unable to access the title.

The highly-anticipated third-person brawler For Honor launched a few weeks ago and has already made waves with its unique combat system, while players this weekend will see some free in-game benefits on the part of Ubisoft.

In the community forums on Ubisoft’s website, a Ubisoft Community Manager announced that For Honor players will receive three days of free “Champion Status” due to “a global Ubisoft online outage” that occurred last weekend and made the game (largely) unable to be played online during a certain period of time.

In response for the outage, Champion Status will be available for all players who tried to access the game between February 13-26 at 2am ET this coming weekend, from March 3-5 (the feature should be in effect at midnight on March 3rd). The Champion Status feature will be active for accounts when players log in on March 3rd, 2017 and should be applied automatically.

Champion Status is a feature in For Honor that players can temporarily activate (using in-game currency or microtransactions) that boosts the amount of XP, Steel, and more earned from matches:

– More Salvage from dismantling Gear
– More end-match Loot
– +25% XP Boost
– 3 Exclusive Champion Emblems
– An Exclusive Champion Icon next to your name
– +10% XP Boost for all players on your team
– Champion Statuses stack (i.e.: if you bought the Season Pass, you will get 3 extra days)

For Honor is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
