For Honor: Marching Fire Trailer, Breach Gameplay, And More Revealed At E3 2018 (VIDEO)
Ubisoft brought quite a bit with them to this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. From the stunning reveal of a returning character in Beyond Good and Evil 2, to The Division 2 goodness, fans were rather pleased with the outcome. During their conference, they also showed off more content on the way to For Honor in the form of an upcoming update, as well as the fact that the game is currently free for PC player, but only for a limited time.
Marching Fire will be a massive update that heads to For Honor this fall, bringing a bounty of goodies along for the ride. First, a new faction will be arriving from the far East. Four members of the Wu Lin faction will be coming to join the battle. Before we get into each of these warriors, let us dive right into the Marching Fire cinematic trailer that was shown during Ubisoft’s presentation:
The four members of the Wu Lin faction are as follows:
- The Jiang Jun
- Once a feared general, now uses his guandao to wreak havoc on the West.
- The Nuxia
- A bodyguard betrayed by allies, uses her hook swords to slay anyone who stands in her way.
- The Shaolin
- A warrior monk forced to watch his monastery burn, now spreads the gospel with his staff.
- The Tiandi
- Once sat fourth in line for the throne but was consumed by madness and killed his brothers, ultimately leading to the defeat of his empire. Now, he atones by seeking out the wicked with his broadsword.

- BREACH THE CASTLE
