The face off between Samurai, Knights, and Vikings first up February 14 with the release of Ubisoft’s For Honor. If you’re on fence about picking up the new AAA title, there are discounts out there from various retailers. You’ll save at least 20% over paying full price.
On PC you have three authorized retailer options. The first is the largest, GMG who is selling keys at a 20% discount world wide. A good alternative if you live in Europe is GamesPlanet, also 20% off but they are selling non-North American keys only. A third option has the best discount, GamersGate worth 22% off making the Standard Edition as cheap as $46.79. Not bad.
