Curse of the Scarab is unleashing on June 16 as Season 2 of Year 6 comes to For Honor. After the Great Cataclysm, Bolthorn attempted to use the power of stolen relics to save his people, but he unknowingly released a terrible curse upon Heathmoor in the process. Inspired by Egyptian mythology, the new Season introduces new lore, a Hero Skin for the Raider, Battle Pass, event, and more. Testing Grounds will also return from June 30 to July 7, focusing on gameplay changes made to Guardbreak vulnerability.
Ubisoft has continued to steadily update and iterate on its unique fighting game For Honor for many years now. Each season brings new cosmetics, story content, heroes, maps, and tweaks to keep the game fresh. Now, Ubisoft has announced For Honor Year 6 Season 2 called the Curse of the Scarab, launching on June 16.
For Honor Year 6 Season 2 is inspired by Egyptian mythology. This means that it brings with it a visual overhaul for many elements of the game to reflect the curse that has befallen the land of Heathmoor. It will also include a full 100-tier battle pass that is loaded with new limited-time items for dedicated fans to unlock that can be bought for $9.99. The season will also feature the short storyline titled Sands of Ruin which will explore Bolthron’s motivations from previous seasons.
Curse of the Scarab will feature new map environments showcasing the curse that has infected Heathmoor, and players can look forward to a three-part short story, "Sands of Ruin," to learn more about Bolthorn's actions; part one of the story releases online on June 17. The new event, Justice of the Pharaohs, is a variation on Dominion mode and brings free lootable weapons, a free event pass, and new orders. The new game mode will be played on a themed version of the Riverfort map from June 16 to July 7.
Finally, the new Season adds a new 100-tier Battle Pass with rewards inspired by Egypt as well as the Battle Bundle - which automatically unlocks the first 25 tiers of the Battle Pass automatically.
