After announcing that For Honor would continue into 2020 with another year of new content, Ubisoft has finally revealed more details about what to expect.
Called the “Year of Reckoning” and in the next twelve months, the fighting game is set to go through some changes that could please or anger some of the fanbase.
First off there will be an even bigger focus on lore and storytelling than in previous seasons. This is not a new solo/co-op campaign – instead Ubisoft adding narrative elements.
Here’s the background:
Season 1 “Hope” starts as the cataclysm that had been afflicting the world of For Honor seems to be coming to an end. Amidst the chaos and after years of unrelenting war, the Heroes of For Honor will need a new reason to fight.
Another change coming is the introduction of a battle pass, and levelling up your battle pass will unlock season specific rewards with a premium option available for those who want to get their hands on more items.
Official tournaments will be held throughout the year with 4v4 Domination being the game mode of choice.
Ubisoft didn’t share any details regarding For Honor’s pair of new heroes. What we do know is that one will arrive this summer, the other planned for the end of the year.
