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.
