Ubisoft has finally revealed the latest For Honor character Hulda, a badass Viking ready for Ragnarok, along with a new map and Viking class ahead of the game’s third season of 2019.

New heroes are released before every For Honor season, with a total of four new characters for each faction to be added in 2019. 

Year Three has already seen a new hero for the Samurai and the Knights – which means it’s finally time for the Vikings to get in on the action.

Sakura the Hitokiri was the new For Honor hero introduced in Season 2 of 2019.

For Honor gave fans a brand new teaser for Hulda that introduces her perched atop a fjord patiently awaiting the end of days – or Ragnarok if you’re a Viking.

Hulda’s class is known as the Jormungandr who (to make a long story short) was a snake who surrounded the earth and grasped his own tail, when he releases it, Ragnarok will begin.

UbisoftHulda brings the Jormungandr class to For Honor.

She holds up a nasty-looking war hammer in the reveal trailer, so it’s a good bet that Hulda and the Jormungandrs will use it as their weapon.

Hulda’s male counterpart is known as Gretar and since their class is part of the Vikings, we can count on some absolutely brutal moves and combos coming from the Jormungandrs.

Along with Hulda, Season 3 also brings a brand new battlefield to For Honor – The Viking Fortress of Storr Stronghold, which will be added into Breach mode’s rotation and be free for all players.

Season 3 of For Honor begins on August 1, which is also when the new Jormungandr class and the new maps will become available. The new class can be purchased for 15,000 in-game Steel, but Year 3 pass holders will get it for free.

UbisoftThere’s still one more new For Honor class to come in 2019.

Hopefully the end of the world decides to hold off long enough that For Honor players get to try out Hulda, the new class and the new maps in Season 3.

Nadeshot calls for major SBMM change in Black Ops Cold War rant

Skill-based matchmaking has been a major complaint from top Call of Duty players for years now, and 100 Thieves CEO and former pro player Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has finally snapped, going on a rant against SBMM in the new Black Ops Cold War.

Nadeshot has never made it a secret that he, alongside a huge number of Call of Duty players, is anti-SBMM.

Though the sentiment makes sense — pit players of equal skill against one another — in practice, many players aren’t happy with it and want to see it removed or at least tuned down.

Nadeshot clearly falls into that category, and let his opinion be known during a December 1 stream while playing on the latest edition of Nuketown, Nuketown ‘84.

Black Ops Cold War has been welcomed with mixed reviews, but SBMM has been a major sticking point.

As you can tell immediately from the scoreline alone and the carnage unfolding around him, the match is an intense one, and he wasn’t impressed.

He said: “It’s time to lower the skill-based matchmaking. This is not fun. I know we want the kids that have never played Call of Duty to be in a safe space, but please stop alienating the people that have been playing your game for over a decade.”

That wasn’t all, though, as Haag continued to complain as he struggled to make much of an impact on the game. “This is not an enjoyable experience,” he said. “Especially trying to get the challenges done on these weapons… Everyone’s got a scorestreak because it’s participation and not skill.”

Both the SBMM and scorestreak complaints have been popular ones for Black Ops Cold War players, and the sentiment seems to be echoed from the top down.

Whether Activision or Treyarch make changes to either issue remains to be seen, but we might not see Nadeshot streaming Black Ops Cold War for too much longer at this rate.
