For Honor X Assassin's Creed Collaboration Event

The three-week long crossover event between For Honor and Assassin's Creed is starting today and will end on January 10.

Two of the biggest titles of developer/publisher Ubisoft will collide as nothing is true, everything is permitted. If you understood that reference then you know we are talking about a certain stealth action-adventure franchise and they are in a quest For Honor.

If that sounds like a bad pun as well, then we will cut to chase where the medieval action fighting game calls in for a three-week long event called "For the Creed", which will bring in Assassin's Creed-themed content for the fierce warriors of the history.

There will be a 4v4 Dominion mode titled Assassini e Templari, which involves capturing zones to decoy commanders Ezio Auditore and Cesare Borgia out of a fight. Each team will receive 300 points to defeat them and the first one to collect 1000 points wins.

The limited time event for the melee action title will run from December 20 to January 10 over all available platforms. Plus, there will be cosmetic items and weapons like the wrist-blades or the axe from Assassin's Creed III to enjoy the spirit of this event.

To create a unique new gaming experience, Abstergo has attempted to generate a themed atmosphere with music and special environmental effects through the Animus and even director Warren Vidic would be there to narrate in certain game modes.

When the fighters will perform any drop attack it will come with a Leap of Faith animation and the in-game menus will be displayed through the Animus. There come a few weekly arcade quests and community orders for players to take part in as well.

In past, Ubisoft has teased the connection between their expanded universes and loves to do that. Earlier this year, Sam Fisher of Splinter Cell visited Ghost Recon: Wildlands and then Easter egg of that game were found in Assassin's Creed Odyssey as a pair of goggles.

In January, players of Assassin's Creed Origins will wield weaponry from the action fighting game in a crossover DLC and maybe that is why, For Honor is packing this event. Also, emotes, outfits or settings from Assassin's Creed may just pop in for the fighters.

The title originally started their journey with three unique class of fighters; Knight, Samurai and Vikings. Fans of AC series believe the next game of the franchise will be set in Feudal Japan and even though it is not coming anytime soon, the event may be setting the stage for that in advance.

For Honor year 3 content will come on January 31, 2019 and the game is already available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Although players have accused the game being a micro-transaction ridden system, Ubisoft somewhat redeemed that with regular updates.
