For Honor Joins Esports Arena With First International Tournament Starting Today

Ubisoft and ESL have announced For Honor‘s first international tournament, The Hero Series, which kicks off today across all platforms in North America, Europe, and Brazil. The developer has issued an open call for players to partake in weekly 1vs1 duel tournaments that will run on the following days:

  • July 8
  • July 15
  • July 22
  • July 29

Top players will qualify to compete in a live final event on August 12 in Burbank, California, for a prize pool of $10,000.

In a press release, Ubisoft said:

For Honor’s competitive play will continue following the Hero Series when ranked mode releases in a future update. Ranked mode will initially offer on-demand tournaments for Duel. In future updates, the ranking system will expand to Brawl as well as 4v4 game modes. For Honor’s ranking system will allow players to have separate ranks for each game mode type while fighting for higher rankings and win exclusive loot. Those looking to get a sneak peek at ranked mode and more about the game’s future evolution can participate in the upcoming second Public Test for Duel Tournament, which will incorporate community feedback and changes to the defensive meta.
