Next For Honor season adds a Viking Shaman and a dual katana-wielding Samurai



Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

From PC Gamer:

Quote:
The next For Honor season is starting on November 14, and with it will come two new heroes. In slashes the Aramusha, a dual katana-wielding Samurai Hybrid who's fast and good at dodging attacks. The Vikings get a new assassin called the Shaman, who carries a hatchet and a dagger and gains two abilities when enemies are bleeding. The first is Blood Trance, which gives the Shaman health for every successful strike, and the other is Predator's Mercy, which is basically a powerful attack aimed at finishing an enemy off.

Both heroes are free for Season Pass holders and will unlock on November 14. Anyone that doesn't own a pass will have to wait until November 21 and buy the heroes for 15,000 Steel each (the in-game currency). You can earn Steel by playing the game or buying it with real money: 11,000 Steel costs $9.99 while 25,000 Steel costs $19.99 (there's no option to buy 15,000 or 30,000 Steel).
I got this one from the Amazon bargain bin and it is a great game, but accumulating steel is ungodly slow and there are only three multiplayer maps. At $20 it is worth it, but I would have been mad at full price.

I got this one for free and I was mad because 10 years old kids kicked the crap out of me.

Overall reviews on Steam are pretty poor. Lot of mentions of gameplay balancing issues, connectivity issues, crashing etc. I haven't tried it yet myself.

Been playing this one since release and put a lot of hours into it. I don't know what evil is talking about, there are more than 3 multiplayer maps.

However yah, people do complain about disconnects (I don't get them but I know it's an issue), and they've been trying to break up the defensive meta since release which I think is the biggest issue (supposedly a massive fight system overhaul will come by the end of Season 4). At the moment there is no reason to attack, defense/reaction is the way to win.

They are going to be dropping dedicated servers at the end of Season 4 or in the off season apparently, so that should help a lot of things out.

I thought it was polished but the sword mechanics do take practice.
