'For Honor' (ALL) Rolls Out Final Year 3 Seasonal Event: Zhanhu's Gambit

by Rainier on Dec. 19, 2019 @ 2:56 p.m. PST

For Honor is a fast-paced, competitive experience mixing skill, strategy, and team play with visceral melee combat.

Carve a path of destruction through the battlefield fighting for guts, glory, and survival in For Honor, a new melee action game developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios.

Enter the chaos of a raging war as a knight, Viking, or samurai, three of the greatest warrior legacies. For Honor is a fast-paced and immersive experience, mixing skill with visceral, never-before-seen melee combat.

The Art of Battle, the game's innovative control system, puts you in total control of your heroes, each with distinct skills and weapons, as you annihilate all soldiers, archers, and opposing heroes who stand in your way on an intense, believable battleground.

For Honor offers an engaging campaign and thrilling multiplayer. Enjoy the full experience with friends online, in split-screen two-player co-op, or solo against AI.


The final Year 3 seasonal event for For Honor, Zhanhu’s Gambit, is playable now until January 2 across all available platforms. Zhanhu’s Gambit will delve into the journey of Sun Da and his role in the conflict between the Wu Lin and the Blackstone Legion. Players will be able to enjoy a limited-time game mode and a variety of customization items and rewards themed around the event, including orders, arcade quest, outfits, weapons, effects, emotes and ornaments.

The new limited-time game mode introduced during the event, Emperor’s Escape, will let players re-live the escape of the Wu Lin Emperor from the Blackstone Legion in the aftermath of their conflict at Qiang Pass. In this four-player PvE mode, players will have to escort the Emperor and protect him against hordes of enemies to secure his escape. To do so, players will need to capture zones in order to move across the map. Every time a zone is captured, the Emperor progresses to that zone, and a new one is unlocked for capture. As they progress through the zones, players will come across increasingly strong assailants, including “cursed” enemies with special modifiers. Teamwork and skill will be key to keep the Emperor alive until players can eventually reach and defeat the Blackstone commander.

From now until January 6, players can purchase the Zhanhu’s Gambit Bundle at 45,000 Steel per Hero, which includes items such as outfits, emote, effects, and ornaments. This price may differ based on items players have already unlocked from the bundle. For a full list of what’s included in Zhanhu’s Gambit Bundle, please visit here.

Following three years of continuous improvements, For Honor recently confirmed the game will continue to grow with a fourth year of support for the game in 2020. Titled ‘Year of the Reckoning’, Year 4 will bring an additional year’s worth of free content to the game, including four new Seasons, two new Heroes, and new armor sets.

For Honor is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
