For Honor’s first fully armored Viking Hero, the Varangian Guard, will join the game on February 1. Arriving in Heathmoor to help recapture the Viking village that was seized at the beginning of Year 7 Season 4, the Varangian Guard is a shield-bearing, axe-wielding mercenary protector who can disable enemies with their unique Oathkeeper defensive stance.

Announced during today’s Warrior’s Den livestream – which also celebrated For Honor reaching 35 million players – the Varangian Guard Hero arrives as part of Year 7 Season 4 Title Update 2, and will be available for purchase starting on February 1 from the in-game store and first-party stores, and will also include a new ornament, Elite Outfit, three Scavenger Crates with random gear, and seven-day Champion status (which confers extra loot, extra XP, and more). Players will also be able to unlock the Varangian Guard for 15,000 Steel starting on February 14. Visit for more information.

For Honor is available now for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam, the Epic Games Store, and Ubisoft Connect), and is included with a Ubisoft+ Classics or Premium subscription or available for purchase from the Ubisoft Store.
