For Honor – the multiplayer-focused medieval battler from Ubisoft – is getting a bevy of new content next month. Season Two: Shadow and Might will launch in May for all platforms, introducing some new heroes, maps, and gear.
From the press release:
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.
Season Two will also introduce two new maps, and another gear rarity rating – Epic – which will increase your maximum gear score. This is in addition to a balance overhaul for the entire gear system.
Season Pass holders will get access to the two new heroes on May 16. All other players will be able to unlock them via in-game currency on May 23.
