'For Honor' (ALL) Kicks Off Black Prior's Riposte Season Event

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.

For Honor will be running its first Year 3 seasonal event, Black Prior’s Riposte, starting today March 14 to March 28 across all platforms.

Black Prior’s Riposte will delve into the story of the Black Priors and their decisive role in the history of the For Honor world. For the duration of the event, For Honor players will be able to play a limited-time game mode and gather exclusive rewards.

The new game mode introduced during the event will let players re-live one of the greatest battles of the Faction War: the Battle of Attrition. This new limited-time 4v4 mode is a variation of Dominion mode with a unique set of rules. In Battle of Attrition, attackers gain points by conquering side zones. Each zone is worth 500 points and cannot be recaptured by the Defenders once conquered. Defenders gain points by killing soldiers and enemy players. Both teams can also capture the main lane, which is worth 500 points. The first team to reach 1000 points will break the enemy team.

Throughout the two-week event, For Honor players will be able to complete thematic daily orders retracing the story of the Battle of Attrition from each faction’s perspective. In addition, owners of the Marching Fire expansion will be able to participate in unique weekly quests via the Arcade mode.

Additionally, Black Prior’s Riposte brings players a variety of customization items and rewards themed around the event, including outfits, weapons, mood effects, emotes and ornaments. From March 14 to 28, players can pick up the Black Prior’s Riposte Bundles at 30,000 Steel per Hero. This price may differ based on items players have already unlocked from the bundle. In addition, the Black Prior’s Riposte event will debut all-new Anima outfits with animal effects, which are available from March 14th until April 1st at 20,000 Steel per Hero. 

For Honor’s Year 3, Year of the Harbinger, will continue to bring new content throughout 2019, including unique seasonal in-game events with each upcoming season.
