Ubisoft showed off its first new hero of For Honor’s Year 3 content, Vortiger, in a grim and moody cinematic trailer. Year 3 Pass holders can access Vortiger when the season begins on Jan. 31, while others will be able to purchase him separately on Feb. 7 for 15,000 steel.
In the trailer, Vortiger is shown with a longsword and a massive shield, and seems to be an angst-filled man, with themes of darkness and death on full display. Here is the official description of Vortiger and his army of Black Priors:
“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.”
Vortiger is the first of four new heroes that will come to For Honor in Year 3. Additionally, on Jan. 31, a new Dominion map, Harbour, will be released for all players to enjoy.
For Honor will be holding a “Warrior’s Den” livestream on Jan. 24 at 9 a.m. PST that will give full details on Year 3 Season 1. You can tune into the livestream on the For Honor twitch channel.
