Shadows of the Hitokiri Event Now Playable in for Honor®

Sponsored by Businesswire

Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft announced that
For Honor’s Year 3 Season 2 event, Shadows of the Hitokiri, is playable
starting now until June 27. The event is themed around the recently
introduced Hitoriki, ghostly warriors who have lost all faith in
humanity, and features a new limited-time game mode, Soul Rush, new
customization options, special event loot, and more.

Additionally, in celebration of the community’s competitive scene, which
has continued to grow year after year, the For Honor team announced that
they are integrating spectator mode into the game later this year. More
details will be announced at a later date.

As part of the in-game event, the new game mode Soul Rush will show
Heroes clashing in Kaidan, a dark village believed haunted by Sakura’s
victims. Players are tasked with defeating soldiers to collect their
Souls and secure them in the Soul Zones to gain them permanently for
their team. Once a team collects 1000 Souls, the enemy team will break,
giving players a chance to seal their victory. Winners of this game mode
can earn exclusive rewards only available during this event.

Throughout the two-week event, For Honor players will be able to
complete orders and win rewards. In addition, owners of the Marching
Fire expansion will be able to participate in unique Weekly Quests via
the Arcade mode.

From June 10 to July 1, players can pick up the Shadows of the Hitokiri
Bundles at 30,000 Steel per Hero, which will instantly unlock unique
items including Illustrious Outfits, effects, a themed emote, and more.
The price is calculated dynamically, so if players already own content
listed in the package, the price will be reduced according to the value
of the content already owned. For further details please visit:

Since its launch in February 2017, For Honor has received more than two
years of continuous post-launch support and improvements, including the
recently released Marching Fire expansion, which added a new faction of
Heroes. For Honor Year 3, Year of the Harbinger, has already launched
two news Seasons, and the game will continue to receive new content and
in-game events throughout 2019.

For Honor is available for PlayStation®4 computer
entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices and Windows PC. New
For Honor players who want to test their mettle on the battlefield can
play with any hero for free from now until June 17. For players who want
to get the full warrior experience, the game is also on sale across all
platforms. Please visit the store on each platform for more details.
