On May 16th, For Honor will begin “Season 2” which will reset the in-games Faction War, add 2 new maps, 2 new character classes, and more.
In addition to the character additions, Ubisoft commented on the other updates being delivered:
In addition to two new heroes, two new maps titled Forge and Temple Garden will offer new battlegrounds for the continuing conflict. These will be available for free for all players at the start of Season 2, along with an update that will increase the maximum gear score, adjust the balance of the entire gear stats system, and introduce a new Epic level of gear rarity. The start of the season will also mark the return of the Faction War and a chance for the Vikings to repeat their hard-fought first-season victory.
Lastly, they offered up the following CGI trailer to celebrate the beginning of Season 2:
For Honor is an interesting title as it has created a dedicated following while at the same time, alienated some players due to balance and networking issues. It’s good to see Ubisoft continuing to update and refine the title as multiple updates have been released over the past few weeks to improve many aspects of the title. We’re excited to see how the game evolves over the next few months.
