The first season For Honor's third year, Year of the Harbinger, is coming soon to season pass holders on January 31 and bringing with it a new hero – the Black Prior – while everyone else will get their hands on the new hero when it hits consoles and PC on on February 7.
In other news, earlier this morning Ubisoft Montreal posted the patch notes for version 2.04.0, which is the update coming Jan. 31. In addition to Vortiger and Harbor, comprehensive updates for the Shugoki, Warlord and Peacekeeper heroes are also on the way. Other changes include a reset to the Skill Rating for every player, to accommodate a change: Only winning or losing a match affects a player’s personal Skill Rating, in ranked and unranked matches, Other factors figuring into a match score (kills and Renown, for example) had affected this Skill Rating in the first two years.
But with large communities come some weird crossovers — especially with the larger than life For Honor community. And while any crossover was unlikely, it appears that a Redditor has done just that, adding For Honor sound effects to the beat of each Osu! interaction. While the video starts off normal enough as the player boots up “Cold Green Eyes ft. Roos Denayer,” things take a medieval shift as the song starts up. Everytime that the player interacts with the screen, we are treated to one of the Conqueror’s “Rah!”s. Buy For Honor Steel Credits from Mmocs.com with the cheapest price and fast delivery.
PlayStation Plus subscribers have a big February ahead of them. Sony will give PS Plus members 2016’s Hitman: The Complete First Season and For Honor for PlayStation 4 as part of their subscription, starting Feb. 5. PS4 owners are also getting a big boost to their cloud storage with PlayStation Plus. Sony is increasing the limit from 10 GB to 100 GB in February.
Another bonus for PS Plus members is increased cloud storage. The available storage space currently sits at only 10GB but in just a couple of days, Sony will increase it to 100GB. Additionally, PS3 and PS Vita owners are getting Divekick, which is a parody fighting title from Iron Galaxy Studios. The developers describe it as the "world’s first two-button fighting game". Kojima's critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is also included for PlayStation 3 owners while Gunhouse and Rogue Aces are dropping on PS Vita.
Looking ahead to the rest of Year 3, a new Samurai hero is scheduled to arrive as part of Season 2, a new Viking hero enters the fray in Season 3, and the final season introduces a new Wu Lin hero. Additional maps, gear, effects, and customisation options are also planned throughout 2019, and Ubisoft has promised improvements to the likes of reaction times and the revenge system, balancing of offensive play, and enhancements to targeting.
