For Honor announced for Xbox Games with Gold, new season detailed

Today, Ubisoft revealed details about For Honor's "Season VII: Storm and Fury" update. The patch drops on August 2, 2018 and includes a new map, major hero reworks, an updated ranking system, and much more. Better yet, newcomers on Xbox One can download For Honor for free as part of August's Games with Gold lineup starting August 16.

Some of the major changes coming with Storm and Fury are listed below.

  • Map: "Secluded Keep" will expand the battlefield. Once the personal retreat of a pious lord surrounded by water, it is now a highly disputed outpost.
  • Reworks: The "Warden" and "Valkyrie" classes will receive gameplay updates to improve their versatility and efficiency.
  • Ranking: "Master" and "Grand Master" rankings will been added.

It's great to see Ubisoft aggressively supporting For Honor more than a year later. Hopefully this trend will continue in the future. If you haven't played the game, be sure to download it as it also features Xbox One X enhancements.

For Honor was developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other studios. The game is a third-person brawler which features a campaign and various multiplayer modes. Players play as a member of three factions – the Knights, the Vikings, or the Samurai – fighting to the death on intense melee battlefields. For Honor's combat system requires skill because you must carefully balance striking with defending.
