The new season will go live on May 16 and will coincide with a big content update, featuring maps and new playable heroes. The next season has been codenamed Shadow and Might.
The two new For Honor heroes are named the Shinobi and the Centurion - both offer new experiences for both spectrums of the combat field. "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," while "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 new Shadow and Might season will also add a new class of gear - this gear will be even rarer than any previous gear tiers and has been nicknamed 'Epic' gear. With new Epic gear items, the max gear score has increased drastically. We imagine it'll be some time before any players hit the new max gear score when the next season goes live on May 16.
All features in season 2 will be available for all players for free, however, season pass holders will get instant access to the new heroes, while those without the season pass will need to wait till May 23 and must use the in-game Steel currency to purchase the heroes.
