It’s hard to believe that For Honor has been around for long enough to warrant four seasons, but right now the latest – and yes that means Season #4 – is here! Are you ready for a bit of Order & Havoc?
Order & Havoc brings a ton of new content to For Honor, including a brand new 4v4 Tribute mode, a couple of new heroes, two new maps and customisation options galore. A 4v4 Dominion option will arrive later in the season.
For now though, Season 4 of For Honor looks to be a great one and there has never been a better time to jump onto the battlefield, especially when all of the following offerings are available:
- New Team Based Modes – Tribute mode introduces a new objective-based mode to For Honor. Players will fight for control of three distinct Offerings placed throughout the map. Finding and securing those Offerings at their teams’ designated Shrine awards unique team wide buffs, forcing players to make strategic choices on where to place their Offerings. In addition to Tribute, For Honor competitive play will continue to grow with the introduction of Ranked Dominion mode later on within the season. Players will be able to team up with friends to compete in online Dominion matches for a chance to win in-game rewards.
- New Heroes – Rounding out the Samurai and Viking factions, the Aramusha (Samurai Hybrid) and Shaman (Viking Assassin) join the fray. The Aramusha capitalise on the mistakes of their opponents and punish them with a never ending flow of fast attacks in every direction. The Shaman are fierce and aggressive warriors who are strongest when on the offensive. Pouncing on their opponents like wild beasts, they become more deadly as their opponents bleed out onto the battlefield.
- New Maps – Market Town and The Gauntlet join the selection of multiplayer maps. A Samurai village, Market Town is a densely populated maze of twisting alleys. The stilt houses sit above the water, and necessitate a push skyward, creating multi-tiered neighborhoods at varying elevations. Players can navigate the vertical maps through a system of zip lines throughout the map. The Gauntlet represents the Viking Capital, an imposing fortress perched high on a hill, protected by a defensive gauntlet. Few have made their way into the Viking citadel, none have made it back out.
You’ll find that both Tribute mode and the new maps will be free at the start of Season Four, whilst the new heroes – the lethal Aramusha and the savage Shaman – will be immediately playable for season pass holders now, and for all others on November 21st, 2017, for 15,000 Steel each.
