A new season of content is heading For Honor‘s way, and the same is true of a new hero called the Jormungandr. A member of the Viking faction, it will be made available to Year 3 Pass owners before everyone else. Pass owners will be able to play as said hero starting on August 1st, whereas others will have to wait until the 8th, and will also have to spend 15,000 steel to acquire him.
Year 3: Season 3 will soon kick off, and has been teased with a new trailer and the aforementioned announcement. See the following lines of text for more information:
The Jormungandr are Viking sectarians who wear their devotion to the Great Serpent, after whom they are named, on their scarred bodies. Led by Hulda or Gretar, respectively the female and male version of the New Hero, the Jormungandr aims at crushing the weak before Ragnarok comes, as they believe only the most worthy must remain for the Great Battle. Wielding their mighty War Hamarr during fights, they cull their opponents with their powerful attacks.
All players will have the chance to wield their weapons on a new Breach map, the Viking fortress of Storr Stronghold, included in the upcoming Season. Following in the footsteps of previous gameplay updates, Year 3 Season 3 will also further balance the roster with new Hero updates to the Nobushi, Shinobi, Orochi, and many other Heroes.
