Season 3 of For Honor launches on August 15th and with it, some substantial additions to the title. The two new hero types are as follows:
• Highlander (Viking [Class]) – Stoic and guarded, Highlanders are patient heroes capable of switching between two different fighting forms. Their defensive form allows for counter-attacking and trading blows, while their offensive form empowers them to unleash their deadliest attacks at the expense of being able to block. Wielding the heaviest and longest sword in the game, the Highlander’s massive claymore gives them a deadly combination of strength and range.
• Gladiator (Knight [Class]) – Wielding a trident and shield, the Gladiator has made a living off of killing for sport, they now bring their ruthlessness and skill to war. Fighters by trade, they are brash and boastful; equipped with little armor, they can punch their opponents to create separation to set up attacks and stuns. Their larger stamina meter and reduced cool down times make them extremely agile and dangerous opponents.

We’ve discussed For Honor at length. The game has a lot going for it and a ton of potential in the long term so we love seeing Ubisoft continue to refine the title. We sincerely hope we are able to talk about For Honor next year as we now talk about Rainbow Six Siege.
