For Honor – Closer look at new heroes and new maps of Season 3

New videos have arrived showcasing the new heroes and new maps that will be hitting For Honor at the start of Season 3 on August 15th. The Gladiator is leaving the glory of the arena behind to fight for the Knight faction, bringing their trusty trident and buckler.

The Highlander has come to fulfill old oaths to the Viking faction, and his massive claymore is an intimidating sight to behold.

The new Sentinel map is set in the ruins of a Knight fortification, where only a tall tower remains intact. Deadly ballista emplacements give players an opportunity to shoot their opponents, but flanking routes make using these weapons a risky proposition.

The second new map, Viking Village, puts players in a seaside raiding settlement where the land slopes up from the docks to a foreboding hall on a hill. The threat here comes not just in your enemies, or the briny deep, but from a massive spiked barrel that can be released to roll down the hill and crush anyone in its path. Check out both the maps and heroes in the videos below.

The new maps will be available free for all players on August 15th. Season Pass holders will gain access to the Gladiator and Highlander on that same day. They will be available for all other players to purchase with Steel on August 22.

If you haven’t played For Honor yet, this weekend would be a good time to give it a try. Why? Because it’s a free weekend – meaning you can download the entire game (on PS4, Xbox One or PC) and play until Sunday night without spending a penny (financially, that is – we always recommend regular bathroom breaks.)
