Ubisoft have announced further new content in For Honor, bringing a new season’s worth of content to the game on August 15. The new season, named Grudge and Glory, adds new heroes, new maps and a new 1v1 mode.
In line with For Honor’s historic approach to updates, the new maps and mode will be free for players of the game. The new Highlander and Gladiator heroes will be available to all Season Pass holders on the the 15 August and will be available for other players to buy for 15,000 Steel Credits a week later on August 22.
A full description of each of the new heroes has been provided by Ubisoft:
- Highlander (Viking Hybrid) – Highlanders are patient heroes capable of switching between two different fighting forms. Their defensive form allows for counter-attacking and trading blows, while their offensive form empowers them to unleash their deadliest attacks at the expense of being able to block. Wielding the heaviest and longest sword in the game, the Highlander’s massive claymore gives them a deadly combination of strength and range.
- Gladiator (Knight Assassin) – Wielding a trident and shield, Gladiators have made a living off of killing for sport, and now bring their ruthlessness and skill to war. Equipped with little armor, they can punch their opponents to create separation to set up attacks and stuns. Their larger stamina meter and reduced cool down times make them extremely agile and dangerous opponents.
As well as new heroes, the new maps (Sentinel and Viking Village) will encourage players to think on their feet as both feature large and deadly environmental hazards that will force a change in pace. Some smaller updates are also coming with max hero reputation rising to 40 and new legendary gear rarity.
