For Honor Announces Year 5 Content With Shovel Knight Crossover

For Honor's fifth year, titled the Year of the Covenants, starts on March 11.


Ubisoft has announced that Year 5 of For Honor kicks off on March 11 for all platforms with an unexpected crossover event featuring items themed after Yacht Club's Shovel Knight.

From now until March 4, For Honor players can dress their characters in a bunch of Shovel Knight-themed content. This includes emotes, mood effects, outfits, ornaments, and symbols. Each piece is available in the in-game store for anywhere from 10,000 to 20,000 steel.

Then, starting on March 11, For Honor Year 5 begins. Called the Year of the Covenants, the new season "continues the narrative arc that began in Year 4," Ubisoft said in a press release. Players can expect the usual For Honor content drops when Year 5 starts. This includes things like two new playable heroes, added in-game events, and extra customization options.

Ubisoft held a livestream on February 18 that detailed some of what players will experience when For Honor's Year 5 drops. Members of the development team explained the new key art, what the Year of the Covenants mean in relationship to the other in-game factions, and more. The studio said that more information about Year 5 Season 1 will be revealed "at a later date."

For Honor's current season--Year 4 Season 4: Mayhem--has been running since December 2020 and introduced a new hero, armor sets and weapons, and next-gen optimizations.
