Fight with Vengeance as the Ocelotl, For Honor’s New Hero, on July 27

Today, Ubisoft announced that For Honor’s newest Hero, the Ocelotl, will release on July 27. A fierce but calculating warrior, the new Hero, inspired by the Aztec civilization, begins his quest for vengeance against the greedy Conquistador this season.

Earlier this season in For Honor, the Conquistador Vela, the latest Hero Skin, stole a civilization’s riches and took their fiercest warrior as a prisoner. To free him, his people arrive in Heathmoor and avenge the terror the Conquistadors inflicted on their homeland. The prisoner, an Aztec hunter named Mixcoatl, ensures he earns his vengeance through his deadly combat style. Duel-wielding the Macuahuitl club and the Tepoztopilli spear, his ability lets him stalk his opponents and strike with overwhelming strength when he chooses. His archetype, the Ocelotl, will be the fourth Outlander Hero, joining the Afeera, the Pirate, and the Medjay.


Coinciding with the Ocelotl’s launch, For Honor will launch a Performance Mode so console players can best optimise their gameplay experience. More information about this mode can be found at

In addition, a free week will be available on PlayStation, Xbox, Steam, the Epic Games Store, and Ubisoft Connect from July 27 to August 3. Free Week players will have full access to the Standard Edition of For Honor, and those who want to keep battling after the free period will be able to carry on their progression and heroes to the full game once purchased.

Earlier this season, updates to For Honor’s in-game tutorials were added to improve the onboarding experience and ensure a smoother, simpler entry to current and new players, and provide a safe bridge to multiplayer. New players, in addition to the Free Week and the full access to the Standard Edition, will have the opportunity to try the new onboarding feature.

Starting July 27, players will be able to purchase the new Ocelotl Hero from first-party stores for AU$11.95 as part of a package that includes the new Hero, one Exclusive Ornament, one Elite Outfit, seven days of Champion Status, and three scavenger crates. Players can also unlock the Hero on August 10 for 15,000 Steel in-game. In addition, a free Event Pass with a Battle Outfit, an Effect, and an Ornament will be available at the launch of the Hero.

With over 34 million players, For Honor is available to play now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC with Xbox Game Pass, Steam, the Epic Games Store, 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.
