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.

[Original Story]

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.

Check back later for more details on what exactly Ubisoft and For Honor revealed with their upcoming reveal.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
