For Honor players looking to continue the fight on the battlefields of Ashfeld, Valkenheim, and Myre on next-gen consoles are in luck; For Honor will be playable on Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5 on November 10 and November 12 respectively. PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game will run in 4K resolution, while the Xbox Series S will display 1080p; starting in early December, all new consoles will run the game at 60 FPS. All player profiles, purchases, and inventory will transfer when upgrading, for free, to the next-gen counterpart.
For PC For Honor players, a new tournament, the Dominion Series (named after the mode featured), begins October 24 in North America and Europe. Each region’s tournament will consist of four rounds of competition: Open Pools, Qualifiers, Last Chance Qualifiers, and Finals. The overall prize pool is $35,000; $5,000 will be distributed in Qualifiers, while the other $30,000 will be won in Finals.
Players can register for each of the four Open Pools starting today. Registered teams will compete online for a spot in the Qualifier round. The Open Pools will run in two regions (North America and Europe) on the following dates, and players can register now on battlefy.com/DominionSeries.
- Open Pool 1: October 24
- Open Pool 2: November 7
- Open Pool 3: November 14
- Open Pool 4: November 21
The four top-ranked teams from the Open Pools will advance to the Qualifiers, which will take place on December 5. The top two teams from there will head to the Finals on January 23. Teams who don’t place in the Qualifiers have one more chance to make it to the Finals, thanks to the Last Chance Qualifier. The third and fourth-ranked teams from the Qualifier and the first- and second-ranked teams from the Last Chance Qualifier Pool will compete, and the top two teams from that round will advance to the Finals to meet the first- and second-ranked teams from the Qualifier.
The Dominion Series Finals will feature the four best North American teams and the four best European teams battling it out for their region’s crown. The Finals will be broadcast on January 23, 2021.
For Honor is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X | S when those consoles launch. For more information, check out our previous coverage.
