This was on the Ubisoft store and then later taken down.

This basically is the Rainbow Six model where the new content is free, but you can get them early/without in-game credits, along with a variety of vanity stuff, one week early access, that kind of thing.

To note, the other four characters pictured are just existing characters standing in as placeholders, since they're presumably not ready to unveil the other four characters for the first season pass.

So all maps and heroes free (via grind?) Good. If DLC needs to be a thing this is the way to do it. Devs and Pubs need to stop segregating the community.

Fuck, this game has loot boxes? I'm still buying this on day one, but man.

The rest of it seems fine though, being allowed to get all gameplay content for free is the best way to go

I agreed. I believe it's same for Splatoon and BattleBorn.

If the dlc works like R6 then I have no qualms about it since Siege did it quite well.

Expect more and more games to have them going forward - they seem to be a much more reliable source of post-launch money for devs/pubs than traditional season passes.

Great news. Ubisoft leading the charge on the "game as a service" front, and I think it's doing a bang-up job.

They also, most importantly, help retain engagement, since people like getting loot crates, whereas season pass barriers can cause them to leave.

Yeah, it's just extra irritating when they're trying to sell you a season pass at the same time, like in this case.

Definitely seems to follow all of R6's model when you look at it more. The Champion Status buff is the same as R6's boosts where you get bonus xp and in game currency and the more players on your team with the status, the more xp and currency you get.

Seems fair as these things go. R6 people generally seem happy from my interactions with them, though I guess in the end it comes down to if the game itself is as good.

They're moving away from core game content gated behind season passes.

This is an early access bundle with a bunch of vanity stuff and related things.

Pretty sure Siege doesn't have loot boxes. I'm assuming that's because this game has far more customisation options than Siege.

I think I might get the gold edition just so I can have New warriors to use sooner rather than later. I just can't decide which version, PC or PS4? Which will likely have the bigger player base?

Yeah, in the alpha you could could customize every part of your warrior including their weapon from the blade, hilt and handle. Then there's the emotes, executions, emblems, war paint etc you could acquire.

That standard edition looking really appealing there, it's like when you download the free version of some software on your PC and you're expressly made aware that you're getting the shittiest version.

In for honor, all the characters are playable from the start, but you must spend steel, in game currency, to unlock them to customize their appearance and skills.

The characters and crates, yes. The emblems, probably not, though they're just vanity items.

Well yeah, you get one with the faction you choose, then with more scraps you can either upgrade your first guy or unlock and try the others

Been playing Siege since the free weekend on Xb1. Bought the standard edition and have unlocked every playable character including the newest two that just recently released a few months ago. Plus ive been able to buy several vanity items with ingame currency earned from just playing. If For Honors is anything like Siege, the majority of content should be unlockable by just playing the game.
