For Honor begins Season Three tomorrow with Grudge & Glory

For Honor’s third season is set to kick off tomorrow with several tweaks and additions. Dubbed Grudge & Glory, the update introducing the new season is described as the game’s biggest to date, adding two heroes, two maps, ranked play, and more customization items.
