A New Class of Heroes Enters the Battlefield in For Honor

The war in For Honor is just on the horizon and, while we’ve already learned so much about the game, Ubisoft continues to reveal more heroes.  Today’s announcement showed off new classes of elite warriors that are sure to turn the tide of battle.

We already know about the three overall classes Knight, Viking, and Samurai.  Now, let’s meet the elite class, starting with The Lawbringer (Knight).

The Lawbringer: The Lawbringers are the justice in Ashfeld. They enforce the laws and dispense punishment. Their armor is without equal. Their weapon is a grim reminder of the ultimate punishment for lawlessness. They will go wherever they are needed – pray that you are on the right side when they arrive.

Next up is The Valkyrie (Viking).

The Valkyrie: The Valkyries have made a deal with the gods. They will fight and earn glory so that those who can’t will be counted in the halls of Valhalla. They are scouts and trackers who use their spears and shields to deadly effect. They are chosen by the gods — hope you never encounter one on the battlefield.

Lastly, what may be the most mysterious and ferocious, The Nobushi (Samurai).

The Nobushi: The Nobushi are the defenders of the villages too far from the Imperial City for the army to reach. They are elegant fighters with a curious weapon. They have the lightest armor that allows them to move like the wind but cannot take a lot of damage. But don’t let their appearance fool you, they are one of the most effective fighters the Samurai have.

Each one brings their own strength and weakness to the fight, so you’ll still have to choose wisely.  They will all also be available to select when For Honor launches on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2017.  Ubisoft has definitely made buying a Valentine’s Day present easy, haven’t they?

Ubisoft will be hosting a Closed Beta January 26-29, 2017.  You can still sign up to be one of the lucky few by registering here.
