For Honor DLC Officially Confirmed

Published

on

What started as a rumor leaked by a Twitter user has been confirmed by Ubisoft to be For Honor’s first official DLC.

For Honor’s first DLC containing two new classes will be joining the fight in the game’s second season. The two classes, Centurion and Shinobi, are scheduled to become available for free to season pass holders on May 16, 2017. Players who do not own the season pass but still wish to play these heroes will be able to purchase them with steel (in-game currency) starting May 23, 2017.

The Shinobi, also known as the Ninja, will join the Samurai faction and use the Kusarigama, a Japanese weapon that amounts to a chain and sickle, while the Centurion, a new entrant to the Knight faction, will wield a Gladius, a straight-edged sword iconic to soldiers in the Roman Empire. The Shinobi will be a class that relies on movement and speed and the Centurion is Knight Hybrid who thrives at swordplay at close range.

For Honor is an action fighting game that includes hack-and-slash elements. Ubisoft Montreal developed the title and its parent company, Ubisoft, managed publication and distribution. The game uses the AnvilNext engine, which debuted with 2012’s Assassin’s Creed III and has powered subsequent Assassin’s Creed entries, as well as Steep and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, among other titles. While predominantly a multiplayer game, For Honor’s various game modes can be played solo against the AI on different difficulty settings. To find out more about the game, be sure to check out OnlySP’s For Honor review.

Founded in 1997, Ubisoft Montreal initially developed low-profile projects, but grew in size and prominence with its development of the Assassin’s Creed, Prince of Persia, Far Cry, and Watch Dogs series. The company is based in Quebec, Canada, and is a subsidiary of French video game publisher Ubisoft.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
