Player counts in For Honor may be dipping, but developer support isn’t. The brawler’s fourth season of content has been announced, titled Order & Havoc, featuring two new fighters and a host of other additions.
The new heroes joining For Honor‘s ranks later this month are named the Aramusha and the Shaman, belonging to the Samurai faction and Viking faction respectively. Aramusha is a Hybrid class fighter, wielding dual katanas for “executing fast attacks and deploying equally quick defenses”, while the Shaman, an Assassin, gains buffs from making enemies bleed with her hatchet and dagger combo. These buffs are named Blood Trance and Predator’s Mercy, with the first granting health for successful strikes and the second providing a devastating lunge attack.
Alongside the two new heroes, For Honor‘s next content update will introduce two new maps, Market Town and The Gauntlet, as well as the game’s new Tribute mode. Tribute is a 4v4 objective-based mode in which both teams must capture three Offerings spread across the map and bring them back to base, with each granting different team buffs. If Tribute doesn’t sound like your speed, ranked Dominion is also part of the new season, bringing a new tier of competition to the game’s most popular mode.
Order & Havoc launches November 14th, free for all players. Season pass holders will have access to all of the update’s content on launch day, but non-season pass holders will have to wait until November 21st to purchase the new heroes for 15,000 Steel each. Other gameplay improvements will also be included in the free update, such as the ability to equip more executions.
In an attempt to get more players onboard, prior to the launch of Order & Havoc, Ubisoft is hosting a free For Honor weekend on all platforms, running from November 9th to November 12th. The trial will include the game’s full single-player and multiplayer, complete with content up through Season 3, and anyone that is swayed will be able to pick up the game for 60 percent off starting that weekend until November 20th.
