It’s finally time for some more For Honor content and Season 4 finally kicks off today for all players, bringing new character classes and game modes to Ubisoft’s brawler. The new season, entitled ‘Order & Havoc’, introduces a new 4v4 Tribute mode to the game, alongside two new maps and two additional heroes.
Starting today, all players will have access to the new For Honor maps, Market Town and The Gauntlet, which will be available in the newest update to the fighting game. The former is a Samurai village that is host to a maze of alleyways and multi-level housing, perfect for getting the drop on opponents. The latter is the capital of Viking civilization, a fortress perched on a hilltop that contains some strong defenses.
The new Tribute mode will see players taking to the game’s would-be dedicated servers once more, this time in order to control three Offerings which are located on the map. Each Offering will grant teams unique buffs, meaning that warriors will have to work together in order to decide which point is worth pursuing first, before tracking down the other two.
As for the new characters, the Aramusha is a Samurai hybrid class that finds success in punishing opponents that step out of place with quick attacks from all sides. Wielding dual katana, the fighter is capable of disappearing and reappearing in a puff of smoke, making the newest addition to the Samurai a dangerous adversary in combat.
The Shaman, on the other hand, is a Viking assassin class, which focuses on offensive strength. Capable of charging their opponents on all fours, the Shaman can pounce on her prey, using hatchet, dagger, and even her own teeth in combat where necessary in order to secure the kill. As with all of For Honor‘s assassin characters, the latest addition looks like a tricky target to hit and an even more difficult one to kill.
Both heroes are available now for Season Pass holders and can be accessed in the game once the update is downloaded. All other players will have to wait until November 21 to play the characters for themselves, with each costing a significant 15,000 Steel to unlock.
