For Honor kicks off its next season on August 2nd
Ubisoft have today announced that For Honor is the game without an end in sight as Season VII, thats 7 for those without an understanding of Roman numerals, will be launching on August 2nd.
Launching as a free update, For Honor Season VII: Storm and Fury will continue the development teams’ commitment to implementing community feedback and will bring a brand new map, major Hero reworks, an updated Ranking System, and more.
Players will get to fight on a new map, called Secluded Keep. Once the personal retreat of a pious Lord surrounded by water, it is now a highly disputed outpost. Secluded Keep will be available in Tribute, Skirmish, Elimination, Brawl, and Duel.
Season 7 will also introduce two new divisions in the Ranking System - Master and Grand Master, reserved for the fiercest warriors. Players will also be able to monitor their progress with the new Ranking Leaderboard. To focus the community on the new leaderboard and Master divisions, players will be able to join Ranked Duel matches outside Tournaments. Tournaments will instead be triggered on rotation, starting on a week-end basis.
Finally, Xbox One owners, who have gold and have not picked up the game yet, will be happy to know that the game is included in the free games included with the August Games with Gold promotion.
