For Honor fans should brace themselves for a major change coming their way on May 17th.
In the latest blog post, Ubisoft detailed what May’s update will include, and it brings a lot with it. First of all, it marks the start of season six, titled Hero’s March, signalling the arrival of a new map, a new seasonal event, major changes to how Orochi and Peacekeeper play and the new Visual Collection inventory system for holding gear cosmetics. Visual Collection allows players to track and view their gear cosmetics in a separate menu to avoid clustering. More information regarding the seasonal event and balancing updates will be made public closer to the update’s release.
For Honor Season Six, titled Hero’s March, kicks off on May 17, adding a new map, a new seasonal event, major updates for two Heroes, and a feature that lets you keep and reapply cosmetic looks for your gear without cluttering your inventory. And if you’ve held off on joining the battle between Knights, Samurai, and Vikings until now, you can jump in for free this weekend on all platforms, and grab the game for a hefty discount if you want to keep playing (and keep your progress).
Hero’s March adds the new Beachhead map for free, letting players battle for its fortress in all multiplayer modes except Tribute. Additionally, the Orochi and Peacekeeper will receive major gameplay reworks, and you’ll find details on these balancing updates on the official For Honor site before Season Six’s launch. Hero’s March also includes the Visual Collection, a new feature that lets players track their cosmetic visuals in a menu separate from their inventory, and then apply them to any gear they have, meaning you won’t need to hang on to excess gear just to hang on to its look. Finally, the launch will also kick off with a new seasonal event, which will be detailed closer to release.
Make sure to hop on For Honor during its current running free weekend.
