If you are looking for some tough, competitive action in For Honor, this news post is certainly one you are going to want to keep on reading, with Ubisoft and ESL making a huge announcement.

The first For Honor hero series tournament has been announced, which will take place during the summer starting July 8th across all platforms in both Europe and North America. Following weekly events, the top 16 will then battle it out to walk away with a very nice $10,000.

Registered players will earn points based on their rankings following each tournament. Top players from each platform will be selected based on overall tournament standings and invited to battle in a Live Finals event where platform champions will be crowned in Burbank, CA.

These finals will be live streamed on Twitch, the For Honor facebook page and also Ubisoft’s YouTube page. There will also be a caster competition to find a member to join the analyst desk in Burbank, CA for the Live Finals event. Sean Charles, VP of Publisher and Developer Relations, ESL. stated:

At ESL we are committed to growing the esports landscape and For Honor’s competitive ecosystem has been something we’ve all been looking forward to. With the For Honor Hero Series and the addition of ranked mode, there is a lot in store for future For Honor players.
