For Honor’s next season, Season VII: Storm and Fury, is launching August 2 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One families.
Storm and Fury brings with it a brand new map, major Hero reworks, and an updated Ranking System. The new map, Secluded Keep, is described as a highly disputed outpost that was once the personal retreat of a pious Lord surrounded by water. The new map will be available in Tribute, Skirmish, Elimination, Brawl and Duel.
The Warden and Valkyrie will receive “major gameplay updates” to improve their versatility and efficiency, based on feedback from players. Two new divisions in the Ranking System – Master and Grand Master – will also be introduced, and are described by Ubisoft as divisions “reserved for the fiercest warriors”. A new Ranking Leaderboard will allow players to monitor their progress, and players will also be able to join Ranked Duel matches outside Tournaments. Tournaments will now be triggered on rotation.
