Hello fellow warriors,


Following the announcement on the Summer Sale and content availability update, we want to thank for your feedback and give you an update. With all this feedback and after reevaluating our plans, our team has decided to keep the content in the game and not withdraw the items and the sale will continue as planned until July 19th.
We want to apologize on how we communicated these potential changes. Over the past year, thanks to the Warrior’s Den and your presence on the various platforms, we built what we believe to be a strong relationship with you all. Your feedback has been driving the production efforts including the various features and improvements we have made.

Reading the various threads made us realize that we didn’t properly explain what we wanted to do and why we were doing it. Even if we are not proceeding, we want to share the exact plan we had mind and why these changes were going to be made.
The plan was to change the availability status of some of the oldest items located in the Heroes menu. Because we are regularly releasing new heroes, we are on an exponential curve of releasing weekly content on all heroes. We thought that introducing a new availability system for older content was an interesting solution to fight against the massive number of items that could be unlocked. Player expression is something we know you value and we love seeing your creations. We had no intentions to prevent that.



This change only concerned items in the Heroes Menu.

It did not impact the items’ availability in game through the Season Legacy Bundles
And obviously, if an item was unlocked, you would keep it in your inventory.
The plan was never to touch other types of content such as maps, heroes, modes, etc. It was only to address the amount of unlockable items in the Heroes Menu.





The availability status of those old items in the Heroes Menu would have evolved from permanent availability to, at a later date, an “on rotation” availability.

We wanted to start reintroducing those items in rotation around end of summer.
Rotations would have been done every week (like new weekly content), so that there would have been a good turnover and access to these items.


Items put into rotations would have always been at a discounted Steel price similar to what you see today in the Summer Sale
Only items that were at least nine months old (three seasons) could be put into rotation. We didn’t plan to apply this system on any more recent items.
One element that we had overlooked was the status of the executions because they have a gameplay component. Thank you for pointing this out because it was admittedly unfair and in any scenario would have been changed based on your feedback.

Again, we’re only providing this detail right now so the full context can be understood.
Thank you very much for your feedback and rest assured that we are always listening. Your input always has been and always will be at the core of our decision making.
As Roman said at E3, “YOU are For Honor.”

-The For Honor Team.

Ok so this might be an unpopular position but looking at their intent, to have had a weekly rotation of older items permanently on lower prices, haven't we just missed out a little here?

I mean not arguing against customisation or anything but if they had put this reasoning out at the beginning, I'd have thought this a pretty good deal.

True. If the original intentions were communicated the way the OP has put it then the reaction would have been more positive as many of us wouldn't say no to discounts. However, that's not our fault so could week have the weekly discount's anyway and keep the content?

On a more positive note, thank you for listening.

Hopefully they realize they can still lower the prices occasionally with this sales. It would probably mean people spend that little steel they have and competitionists will be happy.

Personnaly keeping the executions is thebmost important, having outfits roll on a... say weekly rotation would not hurt that much because we have a lot of them already

This summer sale has been awesome. They should do this twice a year. I spent approximately 70k in steel and am considering spending ~32k more. I will be almost out then :p

They can simply make little focused discounts more often or permanently recude prices of older items

I wonder if the Death's Shadow armor set for shinobi still available.
