Ubisoft have shared details on For Honor’s next big free update, which rolls out across all platforms on 15 August.
Season three also introduces competitive play to the game in the form of 1v1 tournaments. These will allow players to “vie for higher rankings” which are reset at the start of each new season, and the chance to win unique tournament awards. A 4v4 ranked mode will be added later in the year, according to Ubisoft.
Here’s a little more detail on the two new Heroes. Season pass holders will have instant access from day one, while those without a pass will be able to purchase them from 22 August at the cost of 15,000 Steel.
Highlander (Viking Hybrid) – Highlanders are patient heroes capable of switching between two different fighting forms. Their defensive form allows for counter-attacking and trading blows, while their offensive form empowers them to unleash their deadliest attacks at the expense of being able to block. Wielding the heaviest and longest sword in the game, the Highlander’s massive claymore gives them a deadly combination of strength and range.
Gladiator (Knight Assassin) – Wielding a trident and shield, Gladiators have made a living off of killing for sport, and now bring their ruthlessness and skill to war. Equipped with little armour, they can punch their opponents to create separation to set up attacks and stuns. Their larger stamina meter and reduced cooldown times make them extremely agile and dangerous opponents.
The next season will arrive sometime in November, along with dedicated server support. Let us know your thoughts on the new content heading to For Honor below.
