Ubisoft’s For Honor gets an all-new training mode as part of a free content update released today.
The new training mode offers new ways for players of all experience levels to refine their skills, and progress up ranks from humble Apprentice to unbeatable Master.
The Apprentice and Warriors Trials are aimed at newcomers, and will help players familiarise themselves with the game’s controls, basic moves and techniques before entering the fray against real opponents. A grading system offers feedback and measures progression.
More experienced players can enter the Training Arena, where they can practice their skills against specific Heroes or opponent move sets.
The free update – which is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC – also includes a new in-game library of video tutorials covering each game mode.
The new training modes are part of the game’s fifth season of content, Age of Wolves, and are a welcome concession for new players who are potentially nervous about playing against long-time practitioners of For Honor’s Art of Battle.
Other recent improvements to the game include dedicated servers on all platforms, plus tweaks to several heroes.
