Whispers of a New World recently reached the Horkos. The brutal explorer Conquistador Vela set sail with a fleet to investigate. What she found exceeded all rumors: vast cities of gold, the precious metal plentiful as mud. But this civilization would not suffer invasion so easily. They challenged the Conquistadors to fight at a set time and a place - an odd custom Vela pretended to agree to, before she ambushed them.
Now the Horkos return in triumph. Obscene amounts of gold and treasure fill Vela's Castle. But her greatest prize of all is the enemy combatant she's captured: the strongest warrior from the New World. Many Horkos lives were lost in taking the prisoner. Kept caged and hidden, this spectacular fighter will soon be unveiled before Astrea for a public execution.
Until then, the Horkos celebrate.
Launch Event: Stolen Empire
The Conquistadors have returned from their journey to the New World with vast hoards of gold. The Horkos war machine now funded beyond belief, warriors gather inside Conquistador Vela's castle to celebrate the boundless might of their order. Revelries, feasts and festivities await, where all will marvel at a most prized trophy: a caged warrior from the stolen empire.

Warmonger Hero Skin Conquistador Vela
Conquistador Vela left Heathmoor for a voyage across the sea. Tasked with a crucial mission by Astrea herself, she sailed to the New World, where she found an empire of gold. Through deception, ruthlessness and barbarity, Vela decimated this civilization, and took its unbelievable treasures for herself. Now, she returns to Heathmoor as a Horkos hero, living proof that the strength of their Order knows no bounds.
Become the doom of a stolen empire with the Hero Skin of Conquistador Vela, a full body customization of the Warmonger. Available in For Honor at the start of Y7S2: Vengeance.
