Ubisoft have announced that they will be launching a third season of DLC. The season is called “Grudge & Glory” and Ubisoft have stated that it will be the “biggest ever”.
The DLC is due to release on the 15th August and will include new heroes, maps, game modes and other gameplay updates. The maps and updates will be free to all players whilst the new heroes, the Highlander and the Gladiator will be available to those who have bought the season pass on the 15th August. All other players will be able to purchase the Highlander and the Gladiator on the 22nd of August for 15,000 steel credits.
The official Ubisoft descriptions for the Highlander and Gladiator can be found below:
- Highlander (Viking Hybrid) – Highlanders are patient heroes capable of switching between two different fighting forms. Their defensive form allows forcounter-attacking and trading blows, while their offensive form empowers them to unleash their deadliest attacks at the expense of being able to block. Wielding the heaviest and longest sword in the game, the Highlander’s massive claymore gives them a deadly combination of strength and range.
- Gladiator (Knight Assassin) – Wielding a trident and shield, Gladiators have made a living off of killing for sport, and now bring their ruthlessness and skill to war. Equipped with little armor, they can punch their opponents to create separation to set up attacks and stuns. Their larger stamina meter and reduced cool down times make them extremely agile and dangerous opponents.
The new maps are called Sentinel and Viking Village. Ubisoft have stated that both of these maps “hold a unique and deadly environmental hazard which will force players to master the terrain and be aware of their surroundings at all times.”
