LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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 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.
