For Honor - Season 2: Shadow and Might Coming May 16
Today, Ubisoft announced that For Honor Season Two, Shadow and Might, will launch on May 16. Shadow and Might will bring new content to For Honor including two additional heroes, two extra maps, new customization items and gameplay updates.
Maps and gameplay updates will be free for all players at the start of Season Two. New heroes, the lethal Shinobi and the fierce Centurion, will be available for free immediately for Season Pass holders on May 16, while all other players will be able to unlock them with in-game Steel on May 23.
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.
The two new maps, Forge and Temple Garden, will expand upon the selection of multiplayer battlefields. Additionally, Season Two will introduce a new level of gear rarity – Epic gear – which will increase the maximum gear score along with a balancing overhaul for the entire gear stats system. Following a three week off season, the Faction War will reset on May 16 as the battle for supremacy between all three factions enters its second chapter.
Coinciding with the end of Season One, a new title update (Update 1.06) was released on Windows PC to improve network stability while introducing new gameplay changes and hero balancing. The update is planned to release on consoles shortly. Ubisoft states that For Honor will continue to be supported post-launch with additional content and consistent gameplay balancing updates.
