Year 8 Forged in War

Year 8 of For Honor is called "Forged in War." Under this theme, we're going to explore the most valuable asset in the world of war, the weapons. Our weapons define how we fight and remind us of what we fight for. Throughout Year 8, we are going to explore four stories that unfold around legendary weapons. In some cases these legends are forged through the actions of our heroes and in other cases our heroes may pick up a weapon that already has a legend embedded within which will bring on an entirely new challenge, living up to the weapons name.

Year 8 New Features

During the Warrior's Den, we went over some new features coming to year 8. This includes Converted Maps, Legacy Pass, Rep 80, Arcade Mode free for everyone and some new offers for new players!

New maps is something that has been highly requested by the community so we are very pleased to announce that in Y8S1 TU2, Cathedral will be converted into a Dominion map. Another new feature coming to For Honor in Year 8 is the Legacy Pass. For Year 8, we are bringing back older battle passes and allowing new players to get the content they potentially missed out on. We've also increased the reputation level from 70 to 80. Of course, this means we are releasing a new reward, we really wanted to give our most dedicated players another opportunity to shine.

We will also be making Arcade mode available for all players starting March 14th. This means that all players will now have access to weekly Arcade Quests. All players will have the opportunity to unlock many different rewards for free.

For more a more detailed breakdown of all the new features coming to Year 8, we suggest either checking out the Vision video recap article, or checking out the Year 8 Reveal Warrior's Den.
