Two More Heroes Prepare to Fight For Honor

Now that the first season of For Honor has ended, won by the Vikings, naturally, it’s time to start hyping Season Two.

So today, we have the first solid details about it, which tells us it will go by the moniker ‘Shadow & Might’, and confirms that the next two heroes are the Samurai Shinobi and Knight Centurion. The first makes sense to me, an Assassin class (fecking Peacekeeper!) which uses the Kusarigama, a scythe on a chain. Adapted from typically gardening scythes, which were easily obscured by peasants…yeah, it’s a ninja, happy now?

The Centurion is a bit more confusing because it’s an actual Centurion, like, the Roman kind. Nevermind the whole time disparity (this is an alternate history world after all), English fiefdoms and Roman territories are separated by…y’know, like at least five miles…sure, whatever.

The new season will launch on May 16th for all Season Pass holders of For Honor, and a week later, May 23rd, for everyone else. It also brings the ‘Forge and Temple Garden’ maps and Epic gear to further customize your existing, and upcoming, heroes.


Official Press Release

LONDON, UK — April 27th 2017 — Today, Ubisoft® announced that For Honor™ Season Two, Shadow and Might, will launch simultaneously across all platforms on May 16th. Shadow and Might will bring new content to For Honor including two additional heroes, two extra maps, new customisation items and gameplay updates.

Maps and gameplay updates will be free for all players at the start of Season Two. New heroes, the lethal Shinobi and the fierce Centurion, will be available for free immediately for Season Pass holders on May 16th, while all other players will be able to unlock them with their in-game Steel on May 23rd.

In the war between the three deadly factions, Knights, Vikings and Samurai, two new Heroes enter the battlefield:

  • Shinobi (Samurai Assassin) – The Shinobi are silent warriors able to move with a dancer’s grace and kill with precision thanks to a lifetime of disciplined training. They wield the traditional Japanese Kusarigama.
  • Centurion (Knight Hybrid) – The Centurion sees the battlefield like a chessboard. Equipped with the reliable standard issue gladius, Centurions can bypass enemy defenses through strategic close-quarters combat.

The two new maps, Forge and Temple Garden, will expand upon the selection of multiplayer battlefields. Additionally, Season Two will introduce a new level of gear rarity – Epic gear – that will increase the maximum gear score along with a balancing overhaul for the entire gear stats system.

Coinciding with the end of Season One, a new title update (Update 1.06) was released on Windows PC to improve network stability while introducing new gameplay changes and hero balancing. The update is planned to release on consoles very shortly. For Honor will continue to be supported post-launch with additional content and consistent gameplay balancing updates.

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios* For Honor offers an engaging campaign and thrilling multiplayer modes. Players embody warriors of the three Great Factions, the bold Knights, the brutal Vikings and the deadly Samurai, fighting to the death on intense and believable melee battlefields. The Art of Battle, the game’s innovative combat system that puts players in total control of their warriors, allows them to utilise the unique skills and combat style of each hero to vanquish all enemies who stand in their way.
