For Honor Season Three will launch on August 15th, Ubisoft has confirmed.
For Honor is about to get its largest content update yet. The Season Three Grudge & Glory expansion arrives on August 15th and adds new heroes, maps, gear, and ranked play.
The two new maps – Sentinel and Viking Village – will be free for all players at the start of the season. The new heroes – the Highlander and Gladiator – will be available for season pass owners on August 15th, before becoming available as a 15,000 Steel in-game unlock for other players on August 22nd.
The Highlander hero is a Viking hybrid capable of switching between two different forms. In their defensive form, counter-attacks and trading blows are order of the day, while their offensive form allows for deadly attacks at the expense of being able to block. Highlanders also get to wield the claymore, the heaviest and longest sword in the game.
The Gladiator is a trident and shield equipped Knight Assassin that can punch their opponents to create separation to set up attacks and stuns. The Gladiator is also endowed with a larger than usual stamina meter, and reduced cool down times.
1v1 duel tournaments also make their debut, with players able to compete for higher rankings, and exclusive tournament rewards. Ubisoft says 4v4 ranked modes will follow later this year.
Other season three content includes new legendary gear rarity, and an increase the max reputation for all Heroes to 40.
For Honor Season Three will be available on August 15th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
