On January 31st, Ubisoft's For Honor will be updated to bring a new "Dark Hero" into the game named Vortiger, the Black Prior. In addition, players will find a new Dominion Map, hero improvements and a number of gameplay updates.

The Black Priors are heavy heroes who wield a large kite shield and longsword. These dark agents fight alongside the Knights but are free from the code of chivalry. Whatever victory’s cost, the Black Priors will pay the price. Once Apollyon’s faithful warriors, today they fight with their leader, Vortiger, reinventing their legacy and bringing chaos to the battlefield. The Black Prior will be immediately playable for all owners of the Year 3 pass on January 31, while all other players will be able to unlock the Black Prior on February 7 for 15,000 Steel.

Players will also find the following:

  • Shugoki, Warlord and Peacekeeper heroes will be updated "to improve the roster"
  • the Harbor Dominion map will be added for all players

You'll be able to see all of the update's improvements in action during a live stream event on January 24th at 9:00 am Pacific / 12:00 pm Eastern in the For Honor Twitch channel.
