Looking forward to For Honor? If you're a Twitch Prime member, you'll likely be looking forward to it even more after this. Those without, however, might come away feeling a little further on the fence about Ubisoft's historical brawler.
Ahead of the upcoming beta test details have slipped out surrounding some of the game's outside marketing tactics. Knowing it wasn't all good news when Twitch and Amazon buddied up, it's causing a bit of a stir in the community of the unreleased game.
Before it's even landed, certain players are already being made aware that they'll be rapidly left in the dust by those shelling out for a Twitch Prime subscription. The children of the Twitch and Amazon planned parenthood will be on the receiving end of some special boons once For Honor lands next month.
Among those, and the one likely to be the cause of the arguments, is a simple XP boost. According to the original post streamers partnered with Ubisoft will be forced to take sides with the game's factions. Battling it out against those in the game's opposing forces, the winners will come out on top yeilding boosts and boons for players within their shared combat style.
Once the game is out of the gate, those with a valid Twitch Prime membership will get their additional goodies in form a 10-day Champion status which, in turn, adds XP boosts from crafting and additional rewards at the end of each match. You can pre-order if you want.
