Curse of the Scarab Arrives in For Honor Year 6 Season 2
Today, Ubisoft announced that For Honor’s Year 6 Season 2, Curse of the Scarab, will release on June 16. After the Great Cataclysm, Bolthorn used the stolen relics’ power in an attempt to save his people, but he unknowingly released a terrible curse upon Heathmoor in the process. Inspired by Egyptian mythology, this season introduces a new Hero Skin, a new Battle Pass and Battle Bundle, the Justice of the Pharaohs event, and brings back the Testing Grounds from June 30 to July 7 focusing on Guardbreak vulnerability changes.
The Curse of the Scarab will bring forth new in-game environment changes to reflect the curse brought over Heathmoor. Players can look forward to the three-part short story “Sands of Ruin,” which will reveal Bolthorn’s motivations for using the stolen relics and inadvertently dooming the land, and part one releases on June 17. The new event, Justice of the Pharaohs, has a new variation of the Dominion game mode, lootable weapons, a free event pass, and new orders. The playable event is on the Riverfort map, including ambiance and art updates, and takes place from June 16 until July 7th. More surprises will be revealed later in the season.
Year 6 Season 2’s Battle Pass will be available at launch with 100 tiers of different rewards reflecting the season’s theme. Players can grab the traditional Battle Pass for $14.95, or the Battle Bundle is available for $36.95, which includes the Battle Pass and instantly unlocks 25 tiers. Also, the new Hero skin, Bolthorn the Cursed, will be available at season launch for 25,000 Steel or $29.95.
With over 30 million players, For Honor is available to play now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC with Xbox Game Pass, as well as on PlayStation®4 and Ubisoft+, the Ubisoft subscription service. For Honor is also playable on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X | S through backward compatibility.
