Today, Ubisoft announced a three-week event called "For The Creed", where the world of Assassin's Creed will invade the world of For Honor. Using the power of the Animus, you'll be able to relive the past lives of specific Knight, Viking, Samurai or Wu Lin Heroes as part of the Marching Fire expansion. The event will run from now until January 10th, which will allow you to unlock and gain new items, as well as the chance to play on new maps with special themes for the event. We have more details and a trailer for it all below.
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 4v4 Dominion mode – Assassini e Templari, in which they must capture zones in order to lure commanders Ezio Auditore da Firenze and Cesare Borgia out to battle. Defeating commanders will give a team 300 points. The first team that reaches 1000 points and defeats the opposing team during the breaking period wins. Select game modes will be narrated by Warren Vidic, the director of the Animus Project at Abstergo Industries.
In addition to the special mode, the For Honor world will receive a slew of Assassin's Creed themed changes. Maps featured in the Assassini e Templari mode will include iconography and Animus glitches around the map while the soldiers will be themed around unique factions tied to Assassin's Creed games. In-game features will also receive updates as all drop attacks will include a Leap of Faith and air assassination animation. The game menus will be displayed through the Animus.
