For Honor gets spooky 'Return of the Otherworld' Halloween 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 the "Return of the Otherworld" event. There's a Blood Moon and it's wrecking havoc in the world of For Honor. The publisher says that it's a seasonal event which features spooky elements like exclusive Halloween-themed loot, weapons and much more. The event started on Xbox One and other platforms today, October 25, 2018, and will last until November 8. There are plenty of opportunities to accumulate "Steel" so be sure to play it.

Recently, Ubisoft released the "Marching Fire" expansion. The download has to be purchased separately and adds a lot of new modes, as well as a Chinese martial arts faction. This is by far the biggest change For Honor has seen in recent years.

While "Breach Mode" is your standard castle-defense arena, where you protect a high-value target, "Arcade Mode" is a more drastic departure in terms of gameplay. Arcade Mode pits you against various computer-controlled enemies in endless challenges. You move from level to level, each with its own modifiers, in order to ensure combat is varied and challenging.
