Ubisoft has announced that For Honor Year 5 Season 2 Title Update 2.0 will release on 22 July 2021, adding a new playable Hero to the game: the Kyoshin.
The Kyoshin are mystical Samurai wielding a concealed blade, whose elegance and prowess will leave everyone in awe on the battlefield. Joining the Samurai faction, the Kyoshin are legendary warriors who have a deep connection to the spiritual realms. Their special training led them to master the art of fighting with the Shikomizue, a concealed single-handed blade and a scabbard. As they flow through battle, their heavenly powers can be used against enemies while their special Kaze Stance blocks incoming attacks, allowing them to retaliate quickly.
Starting from 22 July 2021, players will be able to purchase a package from first-party stores that include the new Kyoshin Hero, one exclusive Ornament, one Elite Outfit, seven days of Champion Status and three scavengers crates. Starting from 5 August 2021, players can also unlock the Kyoshin Hero for 15,000 Steel in-game.
Starting from today until 19 July 2021, For Honor will be free to play on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Free Weekend players will have full access to the Standard Edition of For Honor, which includes the story mode, all multiplayer game modes, 12 playable Heroes, and 30 maps.
