Today, Ubisoft revealed the season pass for its upcoming melee combat game, For Honor. In addition to revealing and detailing the aforementioned pass, Ubisoft also announced free post-launch content for the game.

The season pass, which will cost $40 USD (it is also included in the Gold Edition of the game), includes six all-new Heroes, all of which will be available seven days before they are released to everyone. It also includes additional in-game gear, and a “30-day Champion Status,” which gives players more experience points and loot.

Here’s all of the content included:

  • Six all-new Heroes available seven days before released to all players
  • Six elite outfits to customise the new Heroes
  • Day One War Pack
    • One exclusive sunbeam effect on emotes for all Heroes
    • Three exclusive emblem outlines
    • Three scavenger crates to unlock additional gear
    • 30-day Champion Status that gives XP boosts to friends, more XP from crafting and additional end-match loot

All season pass content — bar the six post-launch Heroes and their elite outfits — will be available at launch on February 14, 2017. The new heroes will be steadily released via batches of two at the beginning of a new Season of the Faction War (there are three of these confirmed), which is “the persistent cross-platform meta-game that will evolve the war across the For Honor world.” After this early-access period, these Heroes can be unlocked via Steel, the For Honor in-game currency given for completing matches and in-game challenges.

As mentioned above, Ubisoft has also confirmed free post-launch content. This content will be released across three Seasons following launch, and include new maps, modes, and gear. Season pass holders will receive an early access to some elements of this post-launch content.

For Honor is set to release February 14th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. But if you don’t want to wait that long, you can sign up for the game’s open beta which will be on all of the above platforms from February 9-12.

Lastly, a new trailer/video has been released by Ubisoft highlighting the game’s season pass and post-launch DLC. You can check it out below:
