For Honor Year 3, the Year of the Harbinger, is almost upon us, and with it comes the introduction of a new deadly Hero: the Black Prior. Black Priors are heavy Heroes who fight with a giant kite shield and longsword. Once knights of the order of the Holy Balaur, the Black Priors were born when their leader, Vortiger was swayed by Apollyon's promises of power. With her defeat, the order dispersed and disappeared. Now, the Black Priors have returned and fight for Vortiger, seeking to make amends for their past and pledge fealty to the Knights. The Black Prior will be available for all Year 3 Pass holders on January 31, while all other players will be able to unlock the new Hero on February 7 for 15,000 Steel.
There's a lot more in store for Year 3, Season 1 of For Honor, as the Shugoki, Warlord, and Peacekeeper will all receive Hero updates. Furthermore, a new Dominion map, Harbor, will be accessible to all For Honor players on January 31 for free. A port town on the shores of Lake Eitrivatnen, Harbor marks a key strategic location that members of the Black Prior once helped the Knights defend against their enemies.
Full details of everything Year 3, Season 1 is bringing to For Honor will be revealed on a special Warrior's Den livestream on January 24 at 9:00AM PT at https://www.twitch.tv/forhonorgame. For more on For Honor, check out our previous coverage.
