For Honor's second season was recently announced, and it's bringing a couple new heroes and maps with it when it kicks off on May 16. Because of this news, I decided to jump back into the den of some of the game's most creative players (reddit.com/r/ForHonorEmblems (opens in new tab)), and see what they've come up with since the last time we checked in. If you want to see more awesome For Honor emblems, check out Part 1 (opens in new tab) and Part 2 (opens in new tab).
The first one I want to highlight is an emblem by Reddit user JayySpicey (opens in new tab) that exemplifies why sometimes simpler is better. It's the Quen sign used by Geralt in The Witcher series. In CD Projekt Red's RPG series, the Quen sign gives Geralt a shield which protects him from harm. It's only fitting that someone put this on a real shield.
Another JayySpicey emblem gives Nintendo's underdog Kirby the respect he deserves. Again, it's simple, but it gets Kirby's design across perfectly. The minimalist design that is present in many For Honor emblems is actually my favourite part of the in-game creator. It puts people's creativity to the test, and the players rarely fail to prove they have imaginations.
Of course, it's not surprising to see an emblem created in tribute to From Software's Dark Souls series. The fans are passionate, and that includes user Vaccom (opens in new tab) who brought a bonfire to life in emblem form.
Reddit user Incendio_Wolf (opens in new tab) took the time to put the Green Ranger from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers into the emblem creator. It's a job well done, instantly recognizable by fans of the series. Best of all, it makes me want to load up For Honor just to try and create an emblem for each of the rangers. Now I kinda want to see a Power Rangers game in the For Honor emblem.
Lastly, user Sleepytummies (opens in new tab) has created my favourite emblem of today's collection. They've made an emblem for each member of The Gorillaz, which is impressive to say the least. It's this type of creativity that is most surprising. Sure, you expect to see a dozen Batmans, a handful of Deadpools, and countless other superheroes, but it takes a truly creative person to capture less recognizable characters so perfectly. Kudos, Sleepytummies. Kudos.
Alright, I have one more to share. If you've followed me at all, you'll know I'm a huge Boba Fett fan, and... well, I just had to post this one by user Lohnstar (opens in new tab). I still haven't made one that looks half decent. Also, as someone who isn't a huge fan of the jedi part of Star Wars, I would sure as heck play a jedi fighting game in the For Honor game.
