Ubisoft made a cou­ple of announce­ments today about For Hon­or, the first one being when Sea­son 4 will start. It is set to begin on Novem­ber 14th, bring­ing new Heroes, new maps, and new modes for all the com­pet­i­tive play­ers of For Honor.

Two heroes debut­ing this sea­son are the Ara­musha and the Shaman. The Ara­musha joins the ranks of the Samu­rai crew as a Hybrid and is capa­ble of fast attacks, with equal­ly as fast defens­es. The Vikings get the addi­tion of the Shaman, who is equipped with two dif­fer­ent weapons (hatch­et and dag­ger). He gains strength when oppo­nents are bleed­ing on the bat­tle­field, grant­i­ng two skills called Blood Trance and Predator’s Mer­cy — the first grant­i­ng health for every suc­cess­ful strike while the sec­ond allows them to leap onto an oppo­nent for a dev­as­tat­ing attack. 

These two heroes will be avail­able for Sea­son Pass hold­ers on Novem­ber 14th, while every­one else will have to wait until Novem­ber 21st to unlock them for 15,000 Steel each. The two maps, Mar­ket Town and The Gaunt­let, will be avail­able to all play­ers on Novem­ber 14th.
