Ubi just announced on their blog that will be allowing people to play For Honor for free as a trial event from August 10th until August 13th. So if you didn’t play the beta or you have not purchased the game yet AND you play on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PC – this is your chance to get a taste of the game. The For Honor trial will give you the ability to play the game for as long as you want, as long as its between those 3 days.
This isn’t just any trial though you guys. You get to really immerse yourself in the game. Ubi is allowing you to play the full campaign, you can play multiplayer – all maps and modes and you have 14 different characters to choose from.
This trial is also different from others because any progress you make in the trial will carry over to the full game, if you choose to purchase it. On August 10th to August 20th the game will also be on sale. So if you play the trial and really love it, Ubi is giving you a break on a great discount.
If you have no idea what For Honor is here is a little summary for you guys.
“For Honor is a hack and slash fighting game developed and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game allows players to play the roles of historical forms of soldiers and warriors, including knights, samurai, and vikings within a medieval setting, controlled using a third-person perspective.
All heroes are unique and have their own weapons, skills, and fighting styles. There are 12 downloadable content. Players fight against their opponents with their class-specific melee weapons. When players perform certain actions, such as killing multiple enemies consecutively, they gain Feats, which are additional perks. These perks allow players to gain additional points and strengths, call in a barrage of arrows or a catapult attack, or heal themselves. In most missions, players are accompanied by numerous AI minions. They are significantly weaker than the player character, and do not pose much threat.”
I played the beta but unfortunately there were a lot of issues in the beta so I really didn’t get to play as much as I would have liked. This is definitely good news for me that they are having a trial because I would love to actually play the game without any issues!
Ghost Recon Wildlands
I love this game. Play it constantly! Then I moved and for some reason the disc is not in the game box! Ah! Anyway, this is a really great game, it did not, however, please everyone. Some people were really annoyed at the game, especially at the fact that there was no multiplayer. Honestly? I could care less. I have so much fun playing alone in the campaign that I don’t need anything else!
If you have not played the game yet, there is also a free trial on this. However, its much different than the For Honor trial. This one only allows you to play for 5 hours. Still… 5 hours is a good amount of time to try the game out and see if you like it or not!
Summary of Ghost Recon: “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is a tactical shooter game set in an open world environment and utilizing a third-person perspective with an optional first person view for gun aiming. Players play as members of the “Ghosts”, a fictional elite special operations unit of the United States Army under the Joint Special Operations Command, similar to real-life counterparts DEVGRU and Delta Force. The game does not feature the futuristic setting used in Advanced Warfighter and Future Soldier, but instead adopts a modern-day setting, similar to the original Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon.
As a result, the equipment featured in the game is based on weapons and gear commonly used by military forces around the world.However, the game features some original equipment, such as drones that can be used to tag enemies and show objectives. These drones have limited abilities until upgraded. The game is the first entry to feature an open world, which includes nine different types of terrain, such as: mountains, forests, desert, salt flats, and introduces a dynamic weather system as well as a day-night cycle.
Completing missions during day-time allows players to spot enemies easily, while completing missions at night grants players a tactical advantage, as the night offers players better concealment and easier infiltration due to some guardsmen being asleep.Players are tasked with making observations before carrying out missions. A variety of vehicles, such as dirt bikes, helicopters and dune buggies are featured in the game. Unlike its predecessors, Wildlands features several side-missions.”
As with For Honor, when you play the 5 hours of Ghost Recon and if you purchase the full game, all of your progress WILL transfer over. There are no plans to have a discount on Ghost Recon Wildlands however. But if you want to purchase it you can come back to Gamers Elite and do so below.
