Ubisoft lifts the lid on the new season of For Honor, and introduces new hero, the Hitokiri.
The Hitokiri joins the Samurai faction at the launch of For Honor Year 3, Season 2, which begins on May 2, 2019.
Described as ghostly warriors who have lost all faith in humanity, the new archetype – which will be available in both female and male versions – will be released to Year 3 pass holders from 10am PT on May 2, 2019. All other players will be able to add the Hitokiri to their game from May 9 in exchange for 15,000 Steel.
Ubisoft say that Season 2 will also bring improvements to the existing roster of fighters, with a focus on the Lawbringer and the Raider. A new map called Canopy is also in the works, and set for release when the season begins.
For Honor is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Year 3 pass is currently available for purchase separately, or as part of the For Honor Complete Edition.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
