X-MEN RED: Jean Grey’s Team Revealed!

A mind-blowing team battling the world’s most dangerous mutants!

Last week, Marvel announced the continuation of Jean Grey’s story with X-MEN RED, a brand new series written by Tom Taylor (All-New Wolverine) with art by Mahmud Asrar (All-New, All-Different Avengers Generations: The Unworthy Thor & The Mighty Thor). Today, Marvel is excited to reveal the heroes who will accompany the omega-level telepath as she battles against one of mutantkind and mankind’s most dangerous villains! This uniquely qualified strike force includes Namor, Nightcrawler, All-New Wolverine, her sister Gabby, Gentle (a mutant from Wakanda), and the mysterious new character Trinary, whose secrets will be revealed throughout the pages of X-MEN RED!

“We’ve also got one more fan-favorite hero joining the team in this first arc,” says X-MEN group editor Mark Paniccia. “As the threat level escalates, Jean needs to build a highly specialized team…not just those she trusts, but allies who can survive the oncoming storm.”

When one of the most dangerous X-Men villains returns to wreak havoc, Jean’s dreams of peace are threatened…and order starts to turn to chaos. It’s mutant against mutant this February in an all-new adventure that will have X-fans on the edge of their seats, as Jean Grey’s team takes on the Marvel Universe – only in X-MEN RED!

For Honor season 4

ASSEMBLE YOUR ALLIES AND COMPETE IN FOR HONOR® SEASON FOUR, ORDER & HAVOC, AVAILABLE TOMORROW

Today, Ubisoft announced that For Honor® Season Four, Order & Havoc, will launch on all available platforms starting tomorrow, November 14. Order & Havoc will bring tons of new content to For Honor including the brand-new 4v4 Tribute mode, two new heroes, two extra maps, new customization items for all heroes as well as ranked 4v4 Dominion, which will come later in the season. Tribute mode and the new maps will be free for all players at the start of Season Four. The new heroes – the lethal Aramusha and the savage Shaman – will be immediately playable for season pass holders tomorrow, and for all players November 21 for 15,000 Steel each.

With the launch of Season Four, there has never been a better time to jump onto the battlefield. Season Four offerings include:

  • New Team-Based Modes: Tribute mode introduces a new objective-based mode to For Honor. Players will fight for control of three distinct Offerings placed throughout the map. Finding and securing those Offerings at their teams’ designated Shrines awards unique team-wide buffs, forcing players to make strategic choices about where to place their Offerings first. In addition to Tribute mode, For Honor competitive play continues to grow with the introduction of Ranked Dominion mode later in the season. Players will be able to team up with friends to compete in online Dominion matches for a chance to win in-game rewards.
  • New Heroes: Rounding out the Samurai and Viking factions, the Aramusha (Samurai Hybrid) and Shaman (Viking Assassin) join the fray. The Aramusha capitalize on the mistakes of their opponents and punish them with a never ending flow of fast attacks in every direction. The Shaman are fierce and aggressive warriors who are strongest when on the offensive. Pouncing on their opponents like wild beasts, they become more deadly as their opponents bleed out onto the battlefield.
  • New Maps: Market Town and The Gauntlet join the selection of multiplayer maps. A Samurai village, Market Town is a densely populated maze of twisting alleys. The stilt houses sit above the water, and necessitate a push skyward, creating multi-tiered neighborhoods at varying elevations. Players can navigate the vertical maps through a system of zip lines. The Gauntlet represents the Viking capitol, an imposing fortress perched high on a hill, protected by a defensive gauntlet. Few have made their way into the Viking citadel, none have made it back out.

For those who have yet to step onto the battlefield and pledge their sword to a particular faction, For Honor is currently on sale with discounts up to 60% off, available digitally all platforms through Monday, November 13.

In line with the development team’s commitment to continuously improve the game, For Honor will continue to grow through consistent updates, including the implementation of dedicated servers at a later date.

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios,* For Honor offers an engaging campaign and thrilling multiplayer modes. Players embody warriors of the three Great Factions – the bold Knights, the brutal Vikings and the deadly Samurai – fighting to the death on intense and believable melee battlefields. The Art of Battle, the game’s innovative combat system that puts players in total control of their warriors, allows them to utilize the unique skills and combat style of each hero to vanquish all enemies who stand in their way.
