Season 3 of For Honor got a release date today. Titled “Grudge and Glory“, the update is the largest ever in For Honor and comes with a bunch of new gear, maps, heroes and gameplay updates. The heroes will be the Gladiator Knight and Highlander Viking, with season pass holders getting first dibs beginning on August 15th.
Those who don’t own the pass will need to wait until August 22nd and purchase them in game with 15,000 steel each. The new heroes are described as follows:
- Highlander (Viking Hybrid) –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 Assassin) – Wielding a trident and shield, Gladiators have made a living off of killing for sport, and now bring their ruthlessness and skill to war. 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.
In addition to heroes, competitive tournaments will start beginning with 1v1 Duel, then expanding to the 4v4 modes as the season progresses. There are two new maps with season 3, Sentinel and Viking Village. They will add new battlefields to the existing world map. Both maps hold a unique and deadly environmental hazard which will force players to master the terrain and be aware of their surroundings at all times. Additionally, Season Three will introduce a new legendary gear rarity and increase the max reputation for all Heroes to 40 giving players more customization options for their Heroes.
