The For Honor Shovel Knight DLC has been revealed as a silly new addition to the medieval battle game in celebration of its fourth anniversary.

For Honor is a game that's all about ironclad warriors beating the ever-loving heck out of one another with a vast array of weapons. The game has been happily chugging along for four years now and the developers have announced plans for Year 5 Content. They've also got a surprise in store for players: an opportunity to grab some cool Shovel Knight cosmetics from the in-game store.

The For Honor Shovel Knight DLC is Wonderfully Ridiculous

The For Honor Shovel Knight DLC is comprised of an emote and three Illustrious Outfits according to a press release from Ubisoft. Unfortunately, this limited-time cosmetic content won't be available for free — you're going to have to pay for it.

The "Shovel Drop" Emote will cost you 10,000 Steel and the Illustrious Outfits will cost 15,000–20,000 Steel apiece. Steel is the game's premium currency and can be purchased at the rate of 5,000 Steel for $4.99 at the minimum.

What this means is that purchasing all of the For Honor Shovel Knight DLC content will cost you a pretty penny — your cheapest option to buy everything would be the 65,000 Steel pack for $49.99 or your regional equivalent. The Shovel Knight DLC will only be around until March 4, 2021; if you don't have some Steel stockpiled, you're probably won't be able to earn enough of the currency through normal gameplay to collect all of the cosmetics.

For Honor Year 5 Content Brings the Mayhem

Aside from the cool Shovel Knight cosmetics, For Honor Year 5 content has also been detailed in a livestream on Twitch earlier today.

2021 will feature four themed seasons and two new Heroes. One of the new Heroes will be released during Year 5 Season 2 and the other Hero will be released during Year 5 Season 4. As usual, there will be a Battle Pass for each season and a bunch of other interesting cosmetic content that players can unlock.

For now, you have a little less than two weeks to get your hands on the For Honor Shovel Knight DLC. You can buy For Honor starting at $14.99 or your regional equivalent via its official website; you can also opt to pick it up on sale on the Ubisoft Store for just $7.50. As for Shovel Knight, your best option is to grab the Shovel Knight Treasure Trove starting at $39.99 or your regional equivalent.
