Season 5 in For Honor is Coming in February

Ubisoft has announced that For Honor Season Five, called "Age of Wolves:, will launch on February 15th. Coinciding with For Honor’s first anniversary, Age of Wolves is said to enhance the core player experience by focusing on Hero balancing, matchmaking and connectivity. Launching as a free update, Age of Wolves will bring major hero updates, fight system changes, new customisation options and more. Dedicated servers and a new training mode will also be released during the season.

Following a successful Open Test in December, which allowed the production team to gather players’ feedback and data, the dedicated server infrastructure will be implemented in For Honor during Season Five. This implementation will remove the resyncing, session migrations and NAT requirements that players currently have and deliver stable connectivity on all platforms. The exact timing of the implementation will be communicated at a later date.

Also noted is that Five Heroes – Kensei, Conqueror, Highlander, Berserker and Nobushi – will receive major gameplay updates in order to re-balance the available roster. The Kensei and Conqueror will both receive new move sets, animations and more to their kit, while the Highlander, the Berserker and the Nobushi, will also receive meaningful balancing updates. Following Season Five, more heroes will receive similar updates as the development team continues to prioritise game balancing.

Ubisoft has stated that after the launch of Season Five, For Honor will introduce three new training modes designed to change the way players hone their skills. Newcomers will be able to learn the basics of the game as well as more advanced techniques in the Apprentice Trials and the Warriors Trials modesThe Arena mode will allow advanced players to practice against specific heroes and moves that will prepare them for any potential fighting combinations.

Finally, Season Five will also bring several quality of life updates including a new item that will boost XP in exchange for salvage, the shift of 4v4 Ranked Mode from Dominion to Tribute, a new reputation level cap, new gear progression and more. Age of Wolves will be the first season of a full year’s worth of content coming to For Honor in 2018.

We here at XBA are amazed that the game is continuing to get the level of support it is, and commend Ubisoft for taking the time to continue to focus on extneding the life of the game while making it a better experience.
