Ubisoft just announced the second season of For Honor titled Shadow and Might. It will bring two new heroes alongside new maps and will start next month, all of which was previewed with a brand new teaser trailer.
For Honor’s new heroes
The first new hero in Season Two is Shinobi, a “Samurai Assassin who moves gracefully and strikes with precision.” It will come equipped with a Japanese Kusarigama weapon. The next new character is the gladius-wielding Centurion, an imposing Roman fighter who’s extremely effective in close combat.
For Honor new maps
The two new maps are Temple Garden and Forge, both of which supplement the selection of multiplayer arenas already available in the game. Epic gear rarity will be introduced with the second season, with the effect of the game’s maximum gear score boosted.
The new maps will arrive for free to all For Honor players at the start of each season and only heroes and cosmetic items are going to be purchasable with real cash. Players can unlock money using the in-game currency called Steel. The game’s DLC scheme is quite similar to another game designed by Ubisoft, Rainbow Six Siege.
For Honor Season 2 Shadow and Magic is planned for release on May 16. Season pass owners will get access to the Shinobi and Centurion that very same day, while regular players will have to wait until May 23.
