During the Warrior’s Den livestream, Ubisoft revealed the upcoming hero coming to For Honor, Medjay, will arrive on July 28. Medjay is the first Egyptian Hero to join the roster, and the second Outlander Hero added to the faction, following last year’s Pirate Hero.
The announcement came with a trailer.
Here’s a backstory about the Medjay:
As Outlanders, the Medjay traveled from the distant desert lands to track down and remove the powers from the stolen relics. The Medjay are highly versatile warriors, and they have a two-in-one fighting style, equipped with a Fan Axe and Dual-Wielding Axe. They hold these weapons to be able to adapt to any given situation, as the Medjay are unyielding and powerful Heroes. The Fan Axe is used as a wide-reach weapon and is best suited for group fights, where the dual-wielding axes give Medjay an edge in one-on-one combat.
Players will be able to purchase the Medjay Hero from the in-game store for $7.99 as a part of a bundle starting July 28. The bundle also includes an Exclusive Ornament, an Elite Outfit, seven days of Champion Status, and three scavenger crates. Users can also unlock the Medjay Hero on August 11 with 15,000 in-game Steel.
To celebrate the upcoming hero’s launch, For Honor will have a free week on PS5, PS5, and PC starting July 28. Free Week players will have full access to the game and can carry their progression if they purchase the game later on. You can get more information about the Free Week here. For Honor will also bring back the Friend Referral Program on July 28, where players can earn rewards for inviting their friends to the game.
For Honor is available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC. The game is also included in Xbox Game Pass and the Ubisoft+ subscription service.
