“Grudge and Glory” will bring with it the largest updates to For Honor to date with the introduction of new heroes, maps, gear, ranked play and a wealth of gameplay updates. All maps and gameplay updates will be free for all players at the start of Season Three. The new heroes, the proud Highlander and the deadly Gladiator, will be available free for Season Pass holders on August 15, while all other players will be able to unlock them in-game on August 22 for 15,000 Steel. The never-ending war between Knights, Vikings and Samurai welcomes two new deadly Heroes into the fray:
Highlander (Viking [Class]) – Stoic and guarded, Highlanders are patient heroes capable of switching between two different fighting forms. Their defensive form allows for counter-attacking and trading blows, while their offensive form empowers them to unleash their deadliest attacks at the expense of being able to block. Wielding the heaviest and longest sword in the game, the Highlander’s massive claymore gives them a deadly combination of strength and range.
Gladiator (Knight [Class]) – Wielding a trident and shield, the Gladiator has made a living off of killing for sport, they now bring their ruthlessness and skill to war. Fighters by trade, they are brash and boastful; equipped with little armor, they can punch their opponents to create separation to set up attacks and stuns. Their larger stamina meter and reduced cool down times make them extremely agile and dangerous opponents.
