Ubisoft just announced that For Honor is having a crossover event with the Assassin's Creed series, where the Assassin and Templar Orders are heading to the fighting pits with iconic characters, a special game mode, map modifications, menu and music changes, and more.
The company's Ghost Recon Wildlands has received multiple crossover events in the past, but this is the first time that For Honor has jumped in on the festivities as well.
The event is described as taking place inside an Animus from Abstergo Industries, as such, Warren Vidic has taken on the duties as the simulation's match narrator.
Arguably the biggest part of the crossover is the addition of Ezio Auditore da Firenze and his Assassin's Creed Brotherhood nemesis Cesare Borgia, who lead their respective armies as commanders. These characters appear in the new special version of the Dominion game mode, where they will even enter the battle with "massive health pools and devastating area-of-effect swings."
The three maps that have this special mode running have had an Assassin's Creed-themed overhaul as well, with various Animus glitches that pay homage to older games in the franchise.
There are, of course, a multitude of cosmetic additions for players to loot and unlock, including emotes, outfits, executions, and more. During the event, however, the usual drop attack of all fighters has been replaced by air assassinations to fit the theme.
The Assassin's Creed invasion of For Honor will be running from now until January 10 as a free event that all owners of the game can participate in. Ubisoft also announced recently that it will be supporting the title for another four seasons during 2019, bringing new heroes, maps, and more.
