Medieval fighting game For Honor's second season, Shadow & Might, is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC today. Three months post-release, after some pretty damning technical issues, the game is in good shape and getting some anticipated new content.
Last month, For Honor's Viking class emerged victorious in the game's first season of faction warfare. As consolation, the game's other two classes, Samurai and Knight, are getting new heroes: The melee-based Centurion and the agile Shinobi. They will be widely released on May 23.

Two new maps are also on their way, along with a new "Epic" gear level and nine new faction warfare territories.
Since the game's release, players have struggled against long matchmaking times and network instability, issues that For Honor's team has been diligently addressing over the last three months. A press release for its second season reads, "The For Honor team has made numerous improvements to hero balancing, gear, matchmaking, and network stability, and much more is planned." Now, its player base is, for the most part, satisfied with the state of the game and excited to brutally scalp each other with For Honor's new heroes.
