For Honor Season 4 Unveiled, Includes Shaman and Aramusha Heroes And New Tribute Mode
For Honor has taken a bit of a beating this year, weathering sluggish servers, balance issues, and backlash against the game’s monetization scheme, but Ubisoft is nonetheless forging ahead with a fourth season of content. Entitled Order & Havoc, the new season will include the usual two additional heroes and maps, as well as a new 4v4 Tribute mode. You can check out a cinematic trailer for Order & Havoc, below.
New Tribute mode and Dominion Ranked
Tribute introduces a brand-new way to play the game, in which teamwork and communication are more important than ever. In this new objective-based mode players fight for control of three Offerings scattered throughout the map and aim to bring them to their teams’ Shrines and secure victory. Upon the presentation of an Offering, each Shrine grants the entire team a unique buff, forcing players to make strategic choices on where to place their Offerings. In addition to this new mode, For Honor competitive play will continue to expand with the introduction of Ranked Dominion mode later within the season, allowing players to team up with friends and compete online for glory and in-game rewards.
New Maps and New Heroes
Two new maps, Market Town and The Gauntlet, enter into the fold. With the addition of two new dangerous warriors, each faction now boasts a full roster of six unique heroes:
- Aramusha (Samurai Hybrid) – Wielding dual katanas, the Aramusha use their blades for both offence and defense. Navigating the battlefield carefully, they are capable of dodging and attacking quickly. The Aramusha capitalize on the mistakes of their opponents and punish them with a never-ending flow of fast attacks in every direction.
- Shaman (Viking Assassin) – Equipped with a hatchet and a dagger, Shamans utilize these two different weapons with quick and deadly precision. They are fierce and aggressive warriors who are strongest when on the offensive. Pouncing on their opponents like wild beasts, Shamans become deadlier as their opponents bleed out onto the battlefield.

For Honor Season 4 – Order & Havoc will be available for season pass holders on November 14. Everybody else can access the new content on November 21.
