Assassins will be joining Vikings, Samurais, Knights and other For Honor heroes in a new time-limited For Honor Assassin's Creed crossover event dubbed For the Creed. The event is live right now and it will run until 10 January 2019.
For the Creed is a first-ever crossover event for Ubisoft's combat action game For Honor. The event will bring a different theme to For Honor experience with a new Assassin's Creed twist on Dominion Mode along with new map visuals, outfits, gear, executions and emotes.
During the event, which will last 20 days, players will have the chance to try out a special version of Dominion Mode where Assassin's and Templars cross their weapons once again. Players will still capture zones across the map but now after the capture of zone closest to enemy's spawn point the team's commanders will appear.
The commander of Assassin's is a beloved protagonist from Assassin's Creed 2 - Ezio Auditore da Firenze while his nemesis Cesare Borgia is the commander of Templars. Both commanders will have a massive health pool and devastating area of effect swings so think twice before striking head-on. Those who manage to take them down will net their team 300 points which is a third of points required for a victory over opposing team.
Ubisoft also added Animus glitches, Assassin and Templar flags and banners to the map and since the battles take place in Animus, matches will be narrated by the director of Animus Project at Abstergo Industries Warren Vidic.
Additionally, For the Creed will offer players a wide variety of customisation items such as Spartan-themed mask outfits based on Assassin's Creed Odyssey and weapons from various Assassin's Creed games will be available to each Hero.
