Earlier today, Ubisoft announced the Season Two collection of updates and downloadable content in For Honor named Shadow and Might for Windows PCs, Xbox One, and PS4.
Among the updates will be gameplay changes, hero re-balancing, and network stability improvements. This part of the update has already made its way to PCs and will debut on console platforms “very shortly”.
The meat of the update will be the new downloadable content and players will have plenty to sink into.
First up, are two new characters: the Shinobi and the Centurion. The Shinobi will be a new Assassin-class hero for the Samurai. The Shinobi are described as silent warriors that move with grace and utilize precision for their kills while wielding a traditional Japanese Kusarigama. The Centurion is a Hybrid hero for the Knights. Using strategy above all else, Centurions wield a gladius and cut through enemy defenses. With these new additions, the count of heroes in For Honor rises to 14.
Along with these two new heroes, two new maps will be introduced. The Art of Battle will soon be practised on “Forge” and “Temple Garden”. These two maps will soon be implemented into the game for all players when Season Two begins on May 16th.
The new heroes, Shinobi and Centurion, will unlock immediately for Season Pass holders when Season Two of For Honor goes live. All other players will have to spend in-game Steel, a currency, in order to play as the new heroes.
For Honor is a fighting game that uses the “Art of Battle” system to bring a conflict between Knights, Vikings, and Samurai to life. For Honor released on February 14th, 2017 for Windows PCs, Xbox One and PS4. Our Editor-in-Chief Daniel Pitt thought well of For Honor, calling it an “excellent no punches pulled brawler”.
