Need more For Honor content in your life? Ubisoft has just the trick, then. In a press release, the publisher has announced the For Honor Season 2: Shadow and Might release date and what fans can expect from the expansion.

Set to launch this May 16 on all platforms, Shadow and Might will usher in new content for the action game, with two new heroes, two extra maps, additional customization items and gameplay updates. The maps and updates will be free for everyone who has the game at the start of Season 2.

In the war between the three deadly factions, Knights, Vikings and Samurai, two new Heroes enter the battlefield:

  • 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.

The two new maps, Forge and Temple Garden, will expand upon the selection of multiplayer battlefields. Additionally, Season Two will introduce a new level of gear rarity – Epic gear – which will increase the maximum gear score along with a balancing overhaul for the entire gear stats system. Following a three week off season, the Faction War will reset on May 16 as the battle for supremacy between all three factions enters its second chapter.

Coinciding with the end of Season One, a new title update (Update 1.06) was released on Windows PC and consoles to improve network stability while introducing new gameplay changes and hero balancing. For Honor will continue to be supported post-launch with additional content and consistent gameplay balancing updates.

Once the new content drops on PS4, we’ll be sure to let you know. In the meantime, you can check the changes in update 1.06 right here.
