For Honor's Season Two Adds Ninjas, Centurions, and Epic Gear on May 16

Ubisoft is expanding For Honor with two new heroes and a pair of new maps.

Ubisoft has announced that For Honor will be kicking off its second season, entitled Shadow and Might, on all available platforms on May 16. The season will follow a short off-season period and today's release of Patch 1.06.

The title of Season Two refers to the new heroes being added to the roster. The Shinobi is the classic ninja striking from the shadows; it's the Assassin class for the Samurai faction, using a kusarigama to kill with precision. The Centurion is the new Hybrid class for the Knight faction, cutting through enemy defenses with the Roman gladius.

There are two new maps being added for Season Two: Forge and Temple Garden. In addition, the update will see a balance pass for the game's gear stats system and a new Epic level of gear. The ongoing Faction War will also reset on May 16.

The new maps and gameplay updates will go live for all players with the start of Season Two on May 16. The new heroes will join the roster on launch day for Season Pass holders, while other players will be able to unlock them via in-game Steel purchases on May 23.

According to a released For Honor timetable, Shadow and Might will carry fans through the next three months. Season Three, currently entitled Glory and Wild, will offer two more heroes, two more maps, and further free updates in late July or early August. Season 4, Instinct and Discipline, will have the same amount of available content when it makes its planned launch in October.
