For Honor Year 3 Season 3 Confirmed
Here’s the full lowdown on the new For Honor hero below:
The Jormungandr are Viking sectarians who wear their devotion to the Great Serpent, after whom they are named on their scarred bodies. Led by Hulda or Gretar, the female and male version of the New Hero, the Jormungandr aims to crush the weak before Ragnarok comes, as they believe only the most worthy must remain for the Great Battle. Wielding their mighty War Hamarr during fights, they cull their opponents with their powerful attacks.
In addition to the new hero, For Honor will also introduce a new Breach map, the Viking fortress for Storr Stronghold, as well as balancing for the roster including the Nobushi, Shinobi, Orochi factions. More details will be revealed during a livestream tomorrow at 5.00pm BST.
