Sorry we won't have the three "for" headline for much longer (here's a
classic comedy homage
as Season 4 in For Honor
kicks off tomorrow.
has details on how this adds (wait for it) four-versus-four combat
to the melee action game. Here's word:
The centerpiece of any new content
drop is, of course, the new Heroes, and Season Fourís are especially formidable.
The Samurai get a new Hybrid, the Aramusha, who wields dual katanas and can
unleash quick attack chains and counters to keep enemies off-balance. Meanwhile,
the Vikings add the Shaman to their ranks, a nimble Assassin type who can pounce
on unsuspecting foes and becomes far deadlier if her opponent is bleeding. Both
the Aramusha and the Shaman will be immediately available to Season Pass holders
tomorrow, and other players will be able to unlock them for 15,000 Steel each
beginning November 21.
The new maps, meanwhile, will be free to all players starting tomorrow. One of
them, Market Town, offers up a multi-tiered battlefield of rooftops and
alleyways crisscrossed with ziplines, which you can use to get around quickly or
drop onto foes from above. The other is Gauntlet, a huge Viking fortress that
funnels attackers through a series of deadly defenses.
Finally, Tribute is a new 4v4 mode that challenges teams of players to capture
three Offerings scattered around the map, which then have to be returned to your
teamís Shrines. Placing an Offering at a Shrine gives your team a special buff,
making the battle increasingly tougher on your opponents. Like the maps, Tribute
will be free to all players at launch.
Additionally, For Honor is on sale today across all digital platforms for up to
60% off, giving new players an extra incentive to start playing the most refined
For Honor experience yet.
