For Honor Year 5

Today, Ubisoft announced that For Honor Year 5 Season 3 Tempest will be available on September 9. A special throwback event will also take place later this season, along with the return of the Covenant Games.

Tempest brings harsh torrential rains and cyclonic winds after a period of intense drought in Year 5 Season 2 Mirage. When Heathmoor’s warriors wished for water during the drought, the Gods answered – but not in the way the warriors wanted. Now, gigantic tidal waves wreck Heathmoor’s villages and harbors along the coastlines.

Beginning September 9 until September 30, there will be a limited-time launch event, Storm Tides. During this event, players will be able to play through a Free Event Pass and gain access to a multitude of rewards such as a new Battle Outfit, an Effect as well as an Ornament. During the event, there will also be new weapons available for players to loot.

For $9.99, players can purchase a Battle Pass with premium content, including new Battle Outfits, Ornament, Execution, Podium, and Effects. Additionally, for this season, all heroes will be receiving a unique execution available for 7,000 Steel. Following last season’s Testing Grounds, improvements to Orochi, Raider, Option Selects, and other fight elements will be added to the live game based on players’ feedback. From September 16-30, For Honor will also have another phase of Testing Grounds. The focus will be a second pass on the Shinobi from the previous phase and new Dominion Game Mode improvements. Changes for Dominion will include capture speed, hardpoint, tracking, and other UI improvements.

Later in the season, players can also experience Wrath of the Jormungandr, a throwback event bringing back original rewards and weapons.

In TU2, the Covenant Games also return. This time around, players will be able to play the Heralds of Chimera game mode, where they can prove their worth to Daubeny. The rewards include a Battle Outfit and an Ornament.

With over 25 million players, For Honor Year 5 Season 3 is available on PlayStation4, the Xbox One family of devices, and Windows PC, as well as on Ubisoft+, the Ubisoft subscription service. For Honor is playable on PlayStation5 and Xbox Series X|S through backward compatibility.
