Following last week’s announcement, Ubisoft is delving deeper to highlight the capabilities of the upcoming For Honor Shinobi and Centurion classes.
They are silent warriors able to move with a dancer’s grace and kill with precision thanks to a lifetime of disciplined training. They wield the traditional Japanese Kusarigama.
The class excels in creating openings and looks to be able to deflect attacks by stepping behind the opponent. The Shinobi, though, is not designed for counter-attacks, and relies on quick movements and attacks to shred enemies.
They see the battlefield like a chessboard. Equipped with the reliable standard issue gladius, Centurions can bypass enemy defenses through strategic close-quarters combat.
The class overwhelms foes with sheer aggression, much like the Berserker. Representing the very best of Rome, the Centurion has a number of options when it comes to breaking defensive walls and executing thrusting attacks that cannot be blocked.
In addition to the two new For Honor Shinobi and Centurion classes, the developer also provided a preview of the two new upcoming multiplayer maps. Temp
Were it not a battleground, the Temple Garden would be one of the most beautiful and serene spaces. It is open and has an incredible view of the valley below. It’s a shame that the view is what made this place so strategically important.
Very few industries remain in Ashfeld, but the nonstop war machine has a constant need for steel. Weapons, armor, and even the currency all require steel. Forges dot the landscape, and they need to work all day to meet the unending demand. Control the Forge and you will control the tide of war. But be careful, the Forge can be a very dangerous place.
As previously announced, the two new For Honor Shinobi and Centurion classes will be free for season pass owners. The rest will have to unlock them by spending precious in-game or real-world currency. The classes and maps will be released on May 16 for season pass owners, and May 23 for everyone else.
Recently, a rumor began circling about a new Coliseum map that Ubisoft may possibly be working on. It was teased through a featured video that was highlighting the importance of Non-Playable Characters (NPCs) in video games and how they bring the worlds of Ubisoft to life by telling their own stories.
