You know it. I know it. We all know it. The term “Battle Royale” is 2018’s buzzword, both inside and outside of E3. And publisher Ubisoft is sidestepping that trend, adding a 4v4 mode instead to the massively popular sword-fighting game For Honor. The new mode was revealed at Ubisoft’s E3 2018 Press Conference moments ago.

As a great additional announcement for those who have been snoozing on the title, Ubisoft is letting anyone pick the game up for free on PC via U-Play beginning today. You have until next Monday to grab that starter edition, so make sure to pick it up now.

Seen in the reveal trailer below, For Honor takes a pretty unique twist on a classic version that was available in the Alpha. Titled Castle Siege, the mode is a 4v4 mode that you can check in the trailer below.

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, there is something to be said about Ubisoft’s continued support for For Honor. The game just entered its sixth season weeks ago, and has been adding a new version of the game and a brand new training mode in 2018 alone.

For Honor is available immediately for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with Marching Fire update coming out October 16, 2018. If you haven’t picked up the title and are looking forward to jumping in the new mode, feel free to pre-order the game via Amazon at a steep discount. Or, y’know, download it now on PC. And check out the new trailer below:
