Ubisoft is making up for the recent lull in For Honor content with four new characters and a new multiplayer mode coming in the game’s biggest content update ever.
The new content update, called Marching Fire, introduces the new Wu Lin faction into the game. This Chinese-themed faction includes four new fighters: the Jiang Jun, who wields a guandao; the Nuxia, who wields hook swords; the Shaolin, who wields a staff; and the Tiandi, who wields a broadsword. The four heroes are teased in the Marching Fire cinematic trailer below.
These heroes can be taken into the game’s new competitive mode, titled Breach the Castle. This new mode brings the first attack/defense-style asymmetric objective to the game, where the attackers must lay siege to a castle, while the defenders use a variety of defensive installations to hold them back. The new mode, along with the four new heroes, are shown off in Marching Fire‘s gameplay trailer below.
For Honor‘s Marching Fire content will hit the game for all platforms on October 16th, along with a new unlimited single-player mode and updated graphics.
