A new season of For Honor is arriving on March 11. That means new content for everyone to enjoy and more battles to take on. Titled "Asunder," the new season starts with a limited-time in-game event known as the Horkos Masquerade, which offers a new 4v4 game mode known as Carousel of Horkos. There’s also going to be a special 30-tier event that’s available for everyone.

This being a new season, players can expect updates along with a wide range of new additions. The Warden, for example, is set to receive an update. Several new armor variations as well as new weapons dropping are coming. A Battle Pass and a Battle Bundle, are to be offered too. Learn more about the Battle Pass here.

New Year

The new season is part of Year 5: Year of the Covenants, which also begins March 11. Besides Asunder, three other themed-seasons are arriving in the game, and each features its own Battle Pass. Two new heroes are set to arrive in the game with the first one available in Season 2 and the second one in Season 4.

For Honor is an action-faction game that includes fantasy and medieval settings. The game was released in 2017 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

In the game, players take on the role of a character coming from one of four factions. These are the Iron Legion (Knights), the Warborn (Vikings), the Dawn Empire (Samurai), and the Wu Lin (Ancient Chinese). What makes the game unique compared to others in the same genre is that each hero in each faction has quotes in their own language. The Knights use Latin while Vikings speak, clearly, Icelandic. Obviously, the Samurai speak Japanese, and the Chinese use Mandarin. Plus, a total of 28 heroes to choose from that were divided into nine for the Iron Legion, five for the Wu Lin, and seven each for the Dawn Empire and the Warborn.

Upon release, For Honor received mainly favorable reviews. It was ranked as the 25th best game of 2017 and even won the Best Fighting Game category during the 2017 People's Choice Award.
