For Honor Invites Players to Kill Ezio in an Assassin's Creed Crossover Limited-Time Event

For the Animus.

Ubisoft announced a new For Honor limited-time event crossover with the Assassin's Creed series. For the next three weeks play a special game mode where your warriors don Assassin or Crusader gear and attempt to eliminate Ezio Auditore.

Starting today through January 10, For Honor is holding a special "For the Creed" limited-time event which features a special 4v4 Dominion mode called "Assassini e Templari." The special 4v4 mode is based on capturing zones which will lure either commanders Ezio or Cesare to the battlefield. Taking out the commanders nets the team 300 points and the first team to reach 1000 points wins.

Select maps will also include special Assassin's Creed flourishes in the map design like Animus glitches, while soldiers will wear Assassin or Templar themed outfits. Moves will also change for the event and drop attacks will now include Leap of Faith and air assassination animations.

Of course, there will be customization items including outfits for heroes based on Assassin's Creed Odyssey, along with other cosmetic items. These can be won in-game or purchased in For the Creed bundles.

The limited-time event is the first since For Honor's major Marching Fire expansion which added Wu Lin heroes to the game, along with major graphical overhauls.
