"Year of the Harbinger" highlights plans for For Honor's third year out in the wild, in a game not many people thought would remain constant, yet continues to not only survive, but also thrive.
Four seasonal updates will fill out the year of content that is being dubbed as "Year of the Harbinger", which will include new characters, new maps, in-game events as well as "regular updates" to address balance and fairness in one of the more unique competitive multiplayer settings. Here's Ubi's official word:
The Year of the Harbinger will officially kick off on January 31 with the new Season, Vortiger, which will introduce a new yet-to-be announced Knight Hero as well as a new map. Further details about Year 3 content will be unveiled progressively throughout 2019, including seasonal events.
For players looking to enhance their For Honor experience, purchasing the For Honor Year 3 Pass gives owners instant access to each new hero with seven days early access exclusivity. For all other For Honor players, heroes will be available to be unlocked after the seven days of early access by using in-game Steel, with each Hero valued at 15,000 Steel. The Year 3 Pass also offers the following content that is unlocked at purchase: five Scavenger Crates, 30 days of Champion Status, and a special “Thunderbolt and Frightening effect” that can be applied on all Heroes.
Newcomers willing to experience everything For Honor has to offer can purchase the For Honor Complete Edition, which includes the base game, the Year 1 Heroes Bundle, the Marching Fire Expansion and the upcoming Year 3 Pass. Both the Year 3 Pass and For Honor Complete Edition are available on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices and Windows PC starting today.
For Honor enters Year 3 coming off a strong second year, which has seen the game reach the 15 million players’ milestone following the introduction of dedicated servers, the release of its biggest content update to date in For Honor: Marching Fire as well as several key updates driven by community feedback. With a roster of 22 Heroes including the recently launched Wu Lin Heroes, as well as seven multiplayer modes, a story campaign and an unlimited PvE mode for Marching Fire owners, For Honor offers a variety of content for those looking to storm the battlefield.
