On the back of For Honor recently being a PS Plus title, Ubisoft look to capitalise on the new wave of players by introducing Year 3, Season 3 and introducing new feral warrior – Jormungandr who will be joining the Viking faction. Owners of the Year 3 pass will be immediately able to play as the Jormungandr starting 1st August at 8pm BST, while all other players can gain access to the new hero on 8th August at 7pm BST for 15,000 Steel.
More information on the Jormungandr is as follows.. ‘The Jormungandr are Viking sectarians who wear their devotion to the Great Serpent, after whom they are named on their scarred bodies. Led by Hulda or Gretar, the female and male version of the New Hero, the Jormungandr aims to crush the weak before Ragnarok comes, as they believe only the most worthy must remain for the Great Battle. Wielding their mighty War Hamarr during fights, they cull their opponents with their powerful attacks.’
All players will have the chance to wield their weapons on a new Breach map, the Viking fortress of Storr Stronghold, included in the upcoming Season. Following in the footsteps of previous gameplay updates, Year 3 Season 3 will also further balance the roster with new Hero updates to the Nobushi, Shinobi, Orochi, and many others.
The official For Honor Twitch channel will be giving fans an exclusive first look at Year 3, Season 3 on Thursday, 25th July at 5pm BST. You’ll be able to view the Warrior’s Den livestream here: https://www.twitch.tv/forhonorgame.
