Details Unleashed About For Honor Season VII: Storm and Fury
Ubisoft has unwrapped the details on the next season for their game For Honor. Season VII: Storm and Fury will be released for various platforms, including the Xbox One, on August 2.
Launching as a free update, For Honor Season VII: Storm and Fury will continue the development teams’ commitment to implementing community feedback and will bring a brand new map, major Hero reworks, an updated Ranking System, and more. Newcomers on Xbox One who have Xbox Live Gold memberships will also be able to download For Honor for free as part of August’s Games with Gold starting August 16.
New content coming to For Honor in Season VII: Storm and Fury include:
- One new map, Secluded Keep, will expand the battlefield. Once the personal retreat of a pious Lord surrounded by water, it is now a highly disputed outpost. Secluded Keep will be available in Tribute, Skirmish, Elimination, Brawl, and Duel.
Major Hero Reworks
- In the wake of the recent Hero updates and feedback from players, For Honor will continue to improve and balance the current roster, as two Heroes - the Warden and Valkyrie - will receive major gameplay updates to improve the versatility and efficiency of their respective move sets.
Ranking System Update
- Introducing two new divisions in the Ranking System - Master and Grand Master, reserved for the fiercest warriors. Players will also be able to monitor their progress with the new Ranking Leaderboard. To focus the community on the new leaderboard and Master divisions, players will be able to join Ranked Duel matches outside Tournaments. Tournaments will instead be triggered on rotation, starting on a week-end basis.
It was also announ ed that coinciding with the beginning of the new Season, For Honor will apply a permanent 30% discount to all battle outfits. For Honor will also launch a new Hero Trial offer available from August 2-9, which will give players the opportunity to try any Hero they do not own and buy them at discounted Steel cost for a week.
We here at XBA love to see developers/publishers support a game the way that Ubisoft has with For Honor.
