Earlier this week Ubisoft and For Honor teased an upcoming collaboration with other Ubisoft franchise, Assassin’s Creed, with a mysterious video message. It seems the two history twining titles are pairing up with a limited time expansion in For Honor.
Titled For The Creed, this new timed event allows player to jump into the AC universe and take on either the Assassin Brotherhood or the Templars. Players can take part in an all new Dominion mode, battle in re-skinned maps themed to Assassin’s Creed, fight with new weapons iconic to the AC series, pull off new AC styled emotes like leaping into hay bales, and tons more. Even the symbolic air assassination has been added to the mix when competing in For Honor.
The new seasonal event runs from December 20, 2018 to January 10 2019. For Honor is available on the PS4, PC and Xbox One. The recent expansion, Marching Fire, was released back in October and adds the Wu-Lin Shaolin warriors to the fray.
Ubisoft and their multiplayer historical warrior combat game, For Honor, have been continuously adding more and more content to the game since its release almost two years ago. Clean off a fresh DLC drop titled Marching Fire, which adds the new Wu Lin faction to the game back in October, a rather cryptic message was recently shared by the For Honor Twitter account.

The message was simple and short, but for any Assassin’s Creed fans it’s an obvious hint towards potentially crossing over the two IPs. Along with the iconic message taken from the Assassin’s Brotherhood in the Assassin’s Creed series, “Nothing is true, everything is permitted”, a short video also added to the tease.
Starting off the short video is also the familiar logos from For Honor and Assassin’s Creed’s modern day corporation, Abstergo, pairing up together. This could mean any number of things, but considering there’s some flare to the reveal, we’re counting on it being something bigger than a simple cosmetic tie-in.
The official reveal is set to be announced on December 20, 2018, but everything seems to be pointing towards the two Ubisoft titles clashing together. Will we see assassins enter the mix of vikings, samurais, knights, and now Shaolin warriors? It would definitely seem like a perfect pairing given the already eclectic mash up between fierce warriors in the online melee combat game.
