No Honor in For Honor?

For Honor, a game about 3 factions fighting for…..well….Honor but seems like Ubisoft doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of the word Honor when it comes to grabbing money for a game that’s $60 for standard edition (no extra content), $70 for deluxe edition (exclusive day one content) and $100 for gold edition which includes everything plus season pass and usually, you would think that’s it.

But considering that the game has a $40 season pass, Ubisoft has decided to put in Micro-transaction that range from $5 to $100Screenshot (15).png

To make matters worse, seems like For Honor has no dedicated servers, even though Ubisoft sells the game and Micro-Transaction for $100

Getting those “Steel” (the in-game currency for For Honor) allows you to unlock all the outfitsfor_honor_store_outfit_bundles_1.jpg

And also skip all the Grind and unlock all “feats” of the warriors in the game

And if you feel like you wanna be special, then why not get Champion Status with the money you spend to level up faster and earn extra “steel” faster right now until next year?

That’s right, For Honor is a free-to-play game that’s $60 right now

You might be wondering “Why is this so familiar?” well, that’s because this isn’t the first time Ubisoft has decided to put in Micro-Transaction so open like this, the first one you are thinking about is Rainbow Six Siege

As a matter of fact, For Honor shares more stuff than that with Rainbow Six Siege.

Rainbow Six Siege also doesn’t have dedicated servers, depending on peer-to-peer online and like Rainbow Six, For Honor has free maps but paid characters (or forever to earn steel) and For Honor is also currently in Season 1, following Rainbow Six, which is in Year 2 right now.

Halo Wars 2 in shelves?

But there seems to be a reason why it’s on the shelves of Wal-Mart. According to Reddit user Thepirahna & cosmoboy, Wal-Mart has always done this and would not let anybody near the case to open it

But that’s not the case in Singapore, as there is wild copies of Halo Wars 2 sold to gamers under the table. As done with few other games, if you know someone who works at a game store in Singapore and they have received the copies, they usually will break the street date and sell the game under the table.

The most notorious of doing this is a store called Qisahn

Rockstar Games at Gamescom??

Sure as hell looks like it! A source told us today that Rockstar Games and Take Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar & 2K will be at Gamescom this year for some reason. Currently it’s not known why but it seems like it might be to either announce Red Dead Redemption 2 or maybe just to support 2K’s Mafia 3.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has been rumored to be announcing soon because of the sudden announcement of Red Dead Redemption being backward compatible for Xbox One but as of now, it’s unknown yet.

If they are going there to announce a game, it should be Red Dead Redemption 2 because according to our source, Grand Theft Auto 6 is most likely not coming out anytime soon because Rockstar Games is currently more focused on Grand Theft Auto Online

It seems like Rockstar Games has been putting more effort into GTA Online, releasing more GTA Online content for the next 2 years or so.

Rockstar North is the only team that makes GTA Games currently under the Rockstar banner and they have not started working on a new GTA game but they do have plans to make a new GTA game soon.

Rockstar San Diego, developers of the Red Dead series however seem to be working on a known IP and this could be Red Dead but they have worked on GTA V so, it might just be for another GTA Online DLC update.

Do you think that Rockstar is gonna announce Red Dead 2 at Gamescom? Let us know in the comments!
