Ubisoft have today announced that the For Honor roster will be joined by Vortiger, the Black Prior, a new Dark Hero on January 31st.

The Black Prior will be part of the Knight Faction and will be available as part of the launch of Year 3, Season 1. Year 3 Season 1 will bring four new Heroes, new maps, seasonal events and gameplay updates along the way. Here is the official description of the Black Prior:

The Black Priors are heavy heroes who wield a large kite shield and longsword. These dark agents fight alongside the Knights but are free from the code of chivalry. Whatever victory’s cost, the Black Priors will pay the price. Once Apollyon’s faithful warriors, today they fight with their leader, Vortiger, reinventing their legacy and bringing chaos to the battlefield. The Black Prior will be immediately playable for all owners of the Year 3 pass on 31st January, while all other players will be able to unlock the Black Prior on 7th February for 15,000 Steel.

There will be additional Hero updates to improve the roster, focusing on the Shugoki, Warlord and Peacekeeper. Additionally, a new Dominion map, “Harbor”, will be added free for all For Honor players.
