Ubisoft has announced the release date and title for Season 6 of For Honor.
Season 6 titled Heroes March will release on the 17th May 2018. Launching as a free update, Hero’s March will bring a brand new map, major Hero reworks, a new Visual Collection feature, and more. Newcomers to For Honor interested in getting a taste of the game ahead of Season Six can take advantage of the first Free Weekend featuring recently launched dedicated servers, starting today, May 3rd until May 6th on all platforms. Players who want to continue their journey after the weekend can keep their progress and purchase the game for up to 67% off. For all details on the For Honor Free Weekend.
Feel free to check out the reveal stream HERE.
New content coming to For Honor in Season Six include:
One new map, the Beachhead, will expand the battlefield. The Beachhead will be available to all players for free and playable in all multiplayer modes except Tribute. Once a grand fortress of solitude and respite, it remains a picturesque view from afar and is a desirable stronghold for any army hoping to sway the odds of battle in their favor.
Major Hero Reworks
In the wake of Season Five’s Hero updates and positive feedback from players, For Honor will continue to improve and harmonise the current roster as two Heroes – the Orochi and Peacekeeper – will receive major gameplay updates with Season Six. More Heroes will receive similar updates in the future as the development team continues to prioritise game balancing.
The Visual Collection
This new feature will allow players to track all visuals they have obtained and then apply them on any gear they have in a separate in-game menu. This will help reduce the need to hoard gear for the reason of simply keeping visuals in one’s inventory, and also directly address player feedback about the lack of inventory space.
“We’re happy to see players react positively to our recent For Honor updates, which included the launch of dedicated servers and extensive Hero balancing changes, as well as new onboarding features,” said Roman Campos-Oriola, creative director of For Honor. “In addition to improving the core experience, we are also working on new content, including all-new Heroes; tune in during E3 2018 to learn more!”
