Ubisoft announced For Honor Season 2, Shadow and Might, hits consoles and PC May 16.
Season 2 adds two new heroes, the Shinobi and Centurion, as well as a pair of new maps and “new customization items and gameplay updates.” The update also introduces Epic gear, “a new level of gear rarity.”
The Shinobi are armed with a “traditional Japanese Kusarigama,” while the Centurion brings a traditional Roman gladius to the battlefield, using it for “strategic close-quarters combat.”
Ubisoft said the new Epic rarity level increases “the maximum gear score,” while also bringing a new level of balance to the “gear stats system.”
Season Pass holders can unlock the two new heroes “immediately” on May 16, while non-season pass holders can unlock them using in-game steel beginning May 23. May 16 also marks the reset of the faction war.
In our For Honor review, we gave the game an 8.0, heaping high praise on its melee combat system. In spite of only having been available for 12 days, For Honor was the best-selling game of February 2017.
