Dark Samurai Hero Is Here For Your Soul As Brand-New FOR HONOR Character Arrives Next Month

The next major For Honor expansion, titled Sakura, is almost here, officially arriving next month, introducing the players to a new dark Samurai Hero, the Hitokiri – that shines in this all-new trailer...

Ubisoft just unveiled the second hero that will join the expanding For Honor roster during the ongoing Year of the Harbinger – Sakura )or her male counterpart, Yato), who get their name from the word “manslayers.” The Hitokiri will be playable for Year 3 Pass owners when the new season launches on May 2, while all other players will be able to purchase the new heroes with in-game steel on May 9.

According to the team at Ubisoft, "the Hitokiri roam the land searching for criminals to execute with their deadly Masakari axe. On the battlefield, their mere presence spreads fear to any opponent foolish enough to confront them." The upcoming DLC will also introduce some major improvements to the Lawbringer and Raider, as well as a new map, Canopy – all of that for all players starting May 2.
 
As a reminder, two more yet-to-be-announced playable heroes are still on their way to join the For Honor roster of characters in the Year of the Harbinger – a Viking and a Wu Lin. In the meantime, be sure to take a closer look at the deadly Sakura in the latest For Honor character trailer down below:
 



 
Enter the chaos of a raging war as a bold Knight, brutal Viking, or deadly Samurai, three of the greatest warrior factions of legend. For Honor is a fast-paced and immersive experience, mixing skill with visceral, never-before-seen melee combat. Storm castles in massive battles and confront deadly bosses in the memorable story campaign and support your allies while slaughtering enemies in the groundbreaking multiplayer modes where your combat skills will make the difference between life and death.

For Honor is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC NOW!
