The maps and updates will be free for all players. The heroes--Shinobi and Centurion (full descriptions below)--will be free for people who own the game's season pass on May 16, with everyone else able to unlock them using the in-game currency, Steel, starting on May 23. The heroes will also presumably be available to buy with real money, though Ubisoft did not announce any specifics about that.

Here are the official descriptions for the new heroes, as written by Ubisoft:

  • Shinobi (Samurai Assassin) – The Shinobi are silent warriors able to move with a dancer’s grace and kill with precision thanks to a lifetime of disciplined training. They wield the traditional Japanese Kusarigama.
  • Centurion (Knight Hybrid) – The Centurion sees the battlefield like a chessboard. Equipped with the reliable standard issue gladius, Centurions can bypass enemy defenses through strategic close-quarters combat.

In addition, For Honor's second season of content adds a new gear rarity level--Epic. This boosts an item's maximum gear score, while the "entire gear stats system" is getting balanced to adjust.

Ubisoft also confirmed today that the in-game Faction War event will reset on May 16.

For Honor is the No. 2 game of the year overall in the United States based on dollar sales, only behind another Ubisoft game, Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
