Today, Ubisoft announced For Honor Year 5 Season 2 – Title Update 2.0 will release on 22nd July, adding a new playable Hero to the game: the Kyoshin. The Kyoshin is mystical Samurai wielding a concealed blade, whose elegance and prowess will leave everyone in awe on the battlefield. With over 25 million players, For Honor is available on PlayStation 4, the Xbox One family of devices, and Windows PC, as well as on Ubisoft+, the Ubisoft subscription service. For Honor is playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S through backward compatibility.
Joining the Samurai faction, the Kyoshin are legendary warriors who have a deep connection to the spiritual realms. Their special training led them to master the art of fighting with the Shikomizue, a concealed single-handed blade, and a scabbard. As they flow through battle, their heavenly powers can be used against enemies while their special Kaze Stance blocks incoming attacks, allowing them to retaliate quickly. Starting 22nd July, players will be able to purchase a package from first-party stores, that include the new Kyoshin Hero, one exclusive Ornament, one Elite Outfit, seven days of Champion Status, and three scavengers crates. Starting 5th August, players can also unlock the Kyoshin Hero for 15,000 Steel in-game.
