For Honor is a third-person fighting game where you have to utilize skillful combat to dispatch foes. The title focuses on a number of historical warriors like the Vikings and Samurai, as they fight for resources in an alternate reality. Aside from providing a short single-player campaign, the multiplayer modes are robust and present quite the challenge.
For Honor has received exemplary post-launch support since release, and this continues with the "Marching Fire" update on October 16, 2018. The content includes "Arcade" and "Breach" modes. While Breach Mode is your standard castle-defense arena, where you protect a high-value target, Arcade Mode is a more drastic departure in terms of gameplay.
Arcade Mode pits you against various computer-controlled enemies in endless challenges. You move from level to level, each with its own modifiers, in order to ensure combat is varied and challenging. As you complete quests, you end up earning rewards. However, as you crank up the difficulty, you'll find that you earn even better rewards.
Unfortunately, you need to purchase the Marching Fire Expansion (opens in new tab) for $29.99 if you want to play Arcade Mode. This new expansion pass seems a little excessive because even For Honor: Gold Edition (opens in new tab) owners have to pay extra. Luckily, For Honor is free through Xbox Games with Gold until September 15. That way you can just need to spend $29.99 for the new content.

I've had brief dabble since it became free with Gold. I am really terrible at the game, but I'm looking forward to improving as I really like the combat system.
I'll just wait for said dlc to be on sale
