For Honor players better get themselves ready for the next season, as the Year 5 Season 3 title update is due next week! The For Honor Y5S3 upcoming update release is set for Sept. 9, and here’s a peek at what’s set to be included in the patch.
As detailed by Ubisoft in the press release, here’s what you can expect from Year 5, Season 3 — which will be called Tempest and will feature 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 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, and Option Selects and other fight elements will be added to the live game based off 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 as well as new Dominion Game Mode improvements. Changes for Dominion will include capture speed, hard point, 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.
