Here’s a bit more detail about For Honor Year 5, courtesy of Ubisoft:

The battle between the greatest warriors rages on as For Honor celebrates its fourth anniversary with the arrival of its Year 5: Year of the Covenants, starting this March. For Honor’s Year 5 content roadmap includes four themed seasons (each with their own Battle Pass), new in-game events, new customization items, and two new Heroes – one targeted for Year 5 Season 2, and the other for Year 5 Season 4.

Ah, but before Year 5 kicks off, Ubisoft has another treat for For Honor fans – valiant 8-bit indie hero Shovel Knight has come to the game in an unexpected crossover!

The event will include a variety of Shovel-themed outfits and cosmetics to grab, for a limited time.

A crossover with Yacht Club Games’ Shovel Knight is now underway, with a variety of appropriately themed items including a Shovel Drop Emote, three Illustrious Outfits (each featuring Ornaments), Mood Effects, Symbols, and more. The Shovel Drop Emote is available for 10,000 Steel, while Outfits will be available for 15,000 to 20,000 Steel each.

For Honor is available now on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and playable via backward compatibility on Xbox Series X/S and PS5. Year 5 kicks off on March 11, and the Shovel Knight event will continue from now until March 4. Anybody out there still chopping heads in For Honor? Ready for another year of updates?
