While the game hasn’t made the news much as of late, Ubisoft has been continually updating their unique hack-and-slash fighting game hybrid For Honor. Season VII of the game, called Storm and Fury, has just gone live, and it brings with it a new map as well as some significant tweaks to a couple of heroes.

First off, Storm and Fury‘s new map is called Secluded Keep. Billed as a former retreat of some lord that’s now been turned into a highly-contested outpost, Secluded Keep will be available in Tribute, Skirmish, Elimination, Brawl, and Duel playlists.

In addition to this, two of the game’s existing heroes, Valkyrie and Warden have received significant reworking. This involves what Ubisoft has called “major updates” to both heroes’ movesets to make them more “versatile and viable for competitive play”.  This should be great news for players of both classes.

Other changes in Season VII include updates to player progression with the addition of new legendary gear, 10 new Reputation levels, and two new ranked divisions: Master and Grandmaster. Additionally, Ranked Duels are now available outside of tournaments.

Of course, this isn’t the biggest update that For Honor is going to get this year. This October will see the release of the Marching Fire update which brings with it the new Wu Lin faction and 4-on-4 Breach Mode, among other changes.
