Even though Christmas is usually in December, for For Honor players, it comes a little bit earlier.
That’s because Ubisoft is prepared to launch the Season Four update for the competitive medieval game, Order & Havoc, starting tomorrow for Season Pass holders, and next week for everyone else. The update will bring a number of new additions to the game, including new warriors, a new Tribute mode, additional maps and more.
The many additions to the game are broken down below, straight from Ubisoft:
New Team Based Modes – Tribute mode introduces a new objective-based mode to For Honor. Players will fight for control of three distinct Offerings placed throughout the map. Finding and securing those Offerings at their teams’ designated Shrine awards unique team wide buffs, forcing players to make strategic choices on where to place their Offerings. In addition to Tribute, For Honor competitive play will continue to grow with the introduction of Ranked Dominion mode later on within the season. Players will be able to team up with friends to compete in online Dominion matches for a chance to win in-game rewards.
New Heroes – Rounding out the Samurai and Viking factions, the Aramusha (Samurai Hybrid) and Shaman (Viking Assassin) join the fray. The Aramusha capitalise on the mistakes of their opponents and punish them with a never ending flow of fast attacks in every direction. The Shaman are fierce and aggressive warriors who are strongest when on the offensive. Pouncing on their opponents like wild beasts, they become more deadly as their opponents bleed out onto the battlefield.
New Maps: Market Town and The Gauntlet join the selection of multiplayer maps. A Samurai village, Market Town is a densely populated maze of twisting alleys. The stilt houses sit above the water, and necessitate a push skyward, creating multi-tiered neighborhoods at varying elevations. Players can navigate the vertical maps through a system of zip lines throughout the map. The Gauntlet represents the Viking Capital, an imposing fortress perched high on a hill, protected by a defensive gauntlet. Few have made their way into the Viking citadel, none have made it back out.
Again, these updates are free, and will launch tomorrow for the Season Pass holders. For the rest of you, you’ll have to wait until November 21st – but that’s not too far off.
