Ubisoft is still bringing new content to For Honor, today they announced the biggest ever 3rd season, titled “Grudge & Glory” will arrive on all platforms August 15. It adds new maps, heroes and a 1v1 game mode.
All the maps are free when the update is released, the two heroes Highlander and Gladiator will be available to season pass owners August 15th and one week later,August 22nd for everyone else to buy with 15,000 steel credits.
Here is Ubisoft’s official description of the 2 new heroes,
- Highlander (Viking Hybrid) – Highlanders are patient heroes capable of switching between two different fighting forms. Their defensive form allows forcounter-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 armor, they can punch their opponents to create separation to set up attacks and stuns. Their larger stamina meter and reduced cool down times make them extremely agile and dangerous opponents.
The 2 new maps, Sentinel and Viking Village “hold a unique and deadly environmental hazard which will force players to master the terrain and be aware of their surroundings at all times.” according to Ubisoft.
Here are a few other key additions to season 3,
