For Honor was previously free on PlayStation Plus between February 5 and March 4 for those who subscribed to Sony’s video game service.
Ubisoft’s original title currently holds a 76 aggregated Metascore on Metacritic, alongside an underwhelming User Score of 5.2 — the latter of which is largely a result of server issues that plagued the game upon launch. Specifically, the game launched with peer-to-peer server connectivity instead of dedicated servers, which resulted in all sorts of unfair advantages for those willing to game the inferior connection method.
Since launch, For Honor has received a lot of love from developers via a constant stream of updates and patches. The current state of the game is vastly superior to that experienced by early adopters.
Epic Games Store is also currently offering puzzle game GNOG for free until August 15 (10:59 AM EDT).
The PlayStation 4 version of GNOG has a Metascore of 77 and User Score of 6.9 on Metacritic. The PC version does not currently carry a Metascore.
