For Honor Season 6 Release Date Announced, No New Heroes Announced Just Yet

For Honor Season 6 Release Date Announced, No New Heroes Announced Just Yet

Quality of life improvements on the other hand...

For Honor's Season Six, The Hero's March, is coming simultaneously across all available platforms on May 17 as a free update. Some of the major updates to the season revolve around quality of life improvements players have requested, including hero balancing and inventory management.

One of the biggest new quality of life improvements to the game comes to For Honor's Visual Collection. Rather than making players hoard gear to keep a visual in one's inventory, visuals will now be tracked in a separate menu and can be applied to any gear once obtained. This will clear up inventory space that's been crowded as a result of keeping visuals on a player's equipment.

For Honor Season Six will also keep balancing heroes with the Orochi and Peacekeeper receiving major gameplay updates. Those updates will be revealed closer to the launch of Season Six, but those are only two of a wider range of updates coming to For Honor's hero roster.

Lastly, a new map named "The Beachhead" was announced today. The map will be available for free and will be playable in all multiplayer modes except Tribute. The Beachhead is as the name suggests, once a massive fortress that remains a stronghold for armies.

If you're interested in jumping into Ubisoft's multiplayer combat game, a free weekend for the game begins this weekend on PS4 and Xbox One. Players with PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold can download and play the full game and have access to the original roster of 12 heroes. The free weekend runs from May 3 to May 6.

For Honor continues to improve and expand its features. Recently For Honor released a new training mode to help new players. And that's on top of the much-needed dedicated servicers that helped the game's online stability.
