In a presentation for ‘For Honor’, the game director Damien Kieken announced on behalf of the developers that all future maps and game modifications for the sword fighting game will be free of charge for all users. According to the website ‘Eurogamer’, Kieken said “We don’t want to split the community. So everything that’s match made [including] new modes and new maps, will be given for free to the players. We’ll also have other free content. We are a big team supporting the game after launch” in regards to the changes.

Even so there will still be different micro transactions which work with the in-game currency ‘steel’. The game director promised that there will be no play-to-win content and that all objects in the game can be used for free; whether the heroes will be available to gamers free of charge is yet to be revealed. It is possible that a similar concept to the one used in Rainbow Six: Siege will be used. Here characters can be bought with a big sum of the in-game currency or just easy though a micro transaction- new maps and game modifications are also free for all players.
