Along with two additional heroes, the Shadow and Might content coming to For Honor includes two extra maps, new customization items and gameplay updates.

Maps and gameplay updates will be free for all players at the start of Season Two. New heroes, the Shinobi and Centurion, will be available for free immediately for Season Pass holders on May 16, while all other players will be able to unlock them with in-game Steel on May 23.

It also introduces a new level of gear rarity – Epic Gear – which increases the maximum gear score along with a balancing overhaul for the entire gear stats system.

Here’s information on the two new heroes, per Ubisoft:

Shinobi (Samurai Assassin) – The Shinobi are silent warriors able to move with a dancer’s grace and kill with precision thanks to a lifetime of disciplined training. They wield the traditional Japanese Kusarigama.

Centurion (Knight Hybrid) – The Centurion sees the battlefield like a chessboard. Equipped with the reliable standard issue gladius, Centurions can bypass enemy defenses through strategic close-quarters combat.

The two new maps, Forge and Temple Garden, will expand the selection of multiplayer battlefields.

Coinciding with the end of Season One, title update 1.06 was released on PC Monday, providing additional network stability while introducing new gameplay changes and hero balancing.

The update was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One today.
