A new hero is coming to For Honor. Known as the Afeera, it arrives in Heathmoor this February 2, the third Outlander hero type to be introduced in the game. The Afeera come from Arabia and wields a mace and shield in battle; capable of acrobatic feats and have been trained to be quick and precise in their attacks.

This hero arrives in the game with two sets and exclusively available for purchase beginning February 2 at $7.99. It comes as part of a bundle that has the hero, one ornament, one elite outfit, seven days of Champion Status and three scavenger crates. Players can also wait until February 16 to unlock the hero for 15,000 Steel.

Dive Deep in the Lore

Going deeper into the lore, the Afeera are elite warrior-scholars tasked with protecting the Sultana, the Celestial Sphere, and all of their kingdom. They are taken from the poorest and the outcasts and usually recruited from a very young age. Before even having the chance to hold a weapon, they're first taught in both arts and sciences.

Once that's done, they then go through an intense and rigorous training to make them strategic and lethal warriors who are always a step ahead of their enemies. They're light on their feet, swift, agile, and have acrobatic qualities borrowed from their namesake, which is the gazelle.

However, with the Celestial Sphere destroyed and the Sultana dead, their mission has changed. They're no longer satisfied with just watching the events in Heathmoor but now desire to shape them.

What to Expect

In addition to a new hero, we've also gotten a peek at what to expect from Year 7. There will be four new seasons along with four battle passes, and four new hero skins plus two new heroes.

The release of the new hero is part of Title Update 2. There are also Hero Fests happening on February 23 and March 9, plus Covenant Games: Horkos Masquerade on March 2.

Finally, there's going to be a free week starting February 2, letting players play the game for free.

For Honor is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Ubisoft+ subscription.
