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 $100

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 outfits
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.
What do you think about companies putting such Micro-Transactions in games that cost $60? Let us in the comments below!
