For Honor gets Assassin's Creed crossover event

For Honor is a third-person fighting game where you have to utilize skillful combat to dispatch foes. The title focuses on a number of historical warriors like the Vikings and Samurai, as they fight for resources in an alternate reality. Aside from providing a short single-player campaign, the multiplayer modes are robust and present quite the challenge.

Today, Ubisoft announced that For Honor will get its first crossover event with Assassin's Creed between December 20, 2018 and January 10, 2019 on all platforms. According to the company, "this three-week in-game event will fully transform the For Honor experience using the power of the Animus as players relive the lives of fearsome Knight, Viking, Samurai, or Wu Lin Heroes."

There's a proper backstory too. Abstergo has created a new gaming experience, called "For The Creed," that utilizes the Animus to transport players to an age where the Knights, Vikings, Samurai, and Wu Lin wage war on each other. For the duration of the event, players can enter a special variation of the "Dominion" mode where they must capture zones in order to lure commanders Ezio Auditore and Cesare Borgia out to battle.

For Honor has also received a slew of Assassin's Creed-themed changes. Some maps include Assassin's iconography and Animus glitches. Better yet, in-game features also received updates so that all drop attacks will include a "Leap of Faith" and "air assassination" animation. The game menus will be displayed through the Animus as well. it's quite a well-done crossover to say the least. There are new customization options too!
