Ubisoft’s third year of content for multiplayer melee fighter For Honor is now underway on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, bringing with it a new hero, a new map, and more.
According to Ubisoft’s recent deep dive video, the Year of the Harbinger (as this third year is known) will be “doing things a little differently”, featuring a somewhat darker tone than usual. Year 3 will, once again, consist of four “seasons” spread throughout 2019, with the first and current season, Vortiger, set to run until the end of April. Season 2 stretches from May to July, Season 3 runs from August to October, and the final season begins in December. A special Hallowe’en event is planned for October.
Those logging into For Honor today, however, can enjoy the first round of promised additions to the game, including hero reworks for the Shoguki, Warlord, and Peacekeeper, a new map – known as Harbor, and featuring a port town on the shores of Lake Eitrivatnen – plus the Black Prior, a new “heavy” hero, armed with a giant kite shield and longsword.
