Ubisoft added that: “The For Honor team will also re-introduce the Warrior Training Program, an initiative that will reward existing and new players who work together, during the free weekend. Seasoned warriors who complete five matches while grouped with Free Weekend players (who do not own the game) will receive two weeks of revamped Champion Status, valued at 8,000 Steel, which will deliver even more XP boosts to players and their team as well as more loot following a match. Those who want to continue their time on the battlefield can take advantage of up to 75% off discounts on For Honor on all digital stores before May 15 and keep their progress from the free weekend.”
