For Honor Monsters of the Otherworld Halloween event

For the fourth year running For Honor will host yet another timed Halloween event, inviting all kinds of ghosts and ghouls from the Otherworld to wreak havoc upon Ashfeld.

Over the next three weeks For Honor players will be able to partake in two spooky new game modes while unlocking loads of Halloween themed loot for their heroes.

Available in-game now, the Monster of the Otherworld event will run until November 12th and is split into two phases. Between now and November 5th Endless March will be available to play, (pumpkin) spicing up your usual Dominion matches with powerful skeleton warriors.

Then, from November 5th until the 12th, Spooky Slashers will pit fighters against demonic foes as they work together to lock down control points.

Playing For Honor during this event gives you an automatic chance of unlocking Otherworld bonuses for your fighter roster, dropping at the end of every match. Ubisoft have promised that items from previous years’ celebrations will be up for grabs but will be phased in for a set amount of time.

For Honor is currently enjoying its fourth year of post-launch support. In 2020, Ubisoft have already added a new hero, The Warmonger, with another promised by the end of the year. This is on top of regular updates and balances, including a core combat design overhaul. Overall, For Honor is now a more offence focused fighting game that allows for more diverse, dynamic battle tactics as opposed to the defence-driven meta that previously existed.

Even if Monsters of the Otherworld doesn’t entice you to jump back into For Honor, you may be tempted by the recently announced next-gen upgrade. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S respectively, allowing for improved graphics and visual effects with a 60 fps mode promised before 2021.
