Ubisoft’s For Honor Season Two, Shadow and Might, will add two new heroes to the battlefield. The Shinobi (Samurai Assassin), 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. Next, the Centurion (Knight Hybrid) sees the battlefield like a chessboard. Equipped with the reliable standard issue gladius, Centurions can bypass enemy defenses through strategic close-quarters combat.
In addition, Shadow and Might will bring 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.
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 and consoles to improve network stability while introducing new gameplay changes and hero balancing. For Honor will continue to be supported post-launch with additional content and consistent gameplay balancing updates.
