While normally a hellish day filled with corporations toying with hearts, April Fools has some perks, like this week’s Rainbow Is Magic event in Rainbow Six Siege. Ubisoft have given the Plane map in the gritty tactical squad-shooter a Lisa Frank makeover. Hot pink unicorn and butterfly-themed operators and a handful of hard plastic toy soldiers fight for control of the VIP (Very Important Plushie), as you do. This event runs for a whole week, up until April 8th, and there’s a collection of hot pink-with-sparkles gear to permanently earn. Below, a trailer for this gleeful nonsense.

FOR HONOR™

Ubisoft's third year of content for multiplayer melee fighter For Honor is now underway on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, bringing with it a new hero, a new map, and more.

According to Ubisoft's recent deep dive video, the Year of the Harbinger (as this third year is known) will be "doing things a little differently", featuring a somewhat darker tone than usual. Year 3 will, once again, consist of four "seasons" spread throughout 2019, with the first and current season, Vortiger, set to run until the end of April. Season 2 stretches from May to July, Season 3 runs from August to October, and the final season begins in December. A special Hallowe'en event is planned for October.

Those logging into For Honor today, however, can enjoy the first round of promised additions to the game, including hero reworks for the Shoguki, Warlord, and Peacekeeper, a new map - known as Harbor, and featuring a port town on the shores of Lake Eitrivatnen - plus the Black Prior, a new "heavy" hero, armed with a giant kite shield and longsword.

Last year saw For Honor reborn to stand with Ubisoft stablemate Rainbow Six Siege, and today marks the third-person team brawler’s first major update of 2019. A war-torn harbor map is available for all to play around, but the most interesting half of this update is the Black Prior hero, available in both boy and girl forms. A dark knight that straddles the gap between Visigoth and Modern Goth, liking black leather, looking moody, they fight in ways that their more chivalrous friends probably tut disapprovingly of. Take a peek at both the map and character below.

Warriors, you've been making it clear: you wanted more ways to creatively and brutally end the lives of your opponents. We understand where you're coming from, and each hero now has a new execution available for 7000 Steel.

If we had to highlight one execution, it seems only right that it would be Shugoki's "Kinjite." A deceptively simple one-handed throat crush. Never forget that Shugoki's heftiness is 100% muscle.

Greetings, Warriors! As the Year of the Harbinger grows ever closer, we have begun a three week "For The Creed" crossover with our friends at Abstergo. From December 20th to January 10th, the Animus Entertainment Experience (powered by Abstergo's cloud-based Helix software) is coming to the world of For Honor.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ES40y0zeX0



Our generous partners at Abstergo have allowed us the privilege of bringing you limited-time content for all Heroes.
  • Relive the age-old conflict between the Assassins and the Templars with the "Champion of the People" and "Ruler of the Masses" Elite Outfits.
  • Channel the legends of Ancient Greece with the "Odyssey of the Misthios" Mask Outfit.
  • Seal the fate of your enemies with the "Requiescat in Pace" Execution.
  • Defy gravity itself with the "Leap of Faith" Free-Roam Emote.



This content can be looted (with the exception of the Emote, Execution, and Mask Outfit), but can also be purchased in Bundles. Please keep in mind that all content will be unobtainable after the end of the event - but will be yours forever if you obtain it now.



To celebrate this collaboration with Abstergo, we've introduced a special variation of Dominion, dubbed "Assassini e Templari." There is no fall damage, and all drop attacks during the event will be air assassinations.

When your team captures the zone closest to your enemies' spawn, a commander will emerge to counter your advance. These commanders are Ezio for the Assassins and Cesare for the Templars. They have huge health pools and sweeping AoE attacks, so defeating them will be no easy task - but their death will bring your team 300 points closer towards victory.



The Event Order for Assassini e Templari will provide the following rewards:
1st Place: 1000 Steel
2nd Place: 500 Steel
3rd Place: 500 Steel



For our Arcade players, a Weekly Quest will be provided each week of this event! Please try out the Abstergo Training Simulation and let us know what you think. Abstergo tells us that your feedback will be crucial for their investigations!

For Honor may have bounced back from the brink, but that hasn’t saved it from being subsumed into the UbiGame collective, becoming an Assassin’s Creed game for the holidays. Ubisoft’s clever online take on the fighting game genre is largely transformed by the For The Creed event until January 10th, now featuring armies of Assassins and Templars fighting in the Animus. The event features a time-limited spin on Dominion mode, where players aim to hack through enough of the enemy grunts to draw out the rival commander, including AC characters like Ezio Auditore (yay!) and Cesare Borgia (boo, hiss!). Take a peek at the trailer below.

FOR HONOR™

The world of Assassin's Creed collides with For Honor from today.

The For the Creed in-game event runs from 20th December to 10th January on all platforms.

It includes a variation of the four versus four Dominion mode called Assassini e Templari in which you capture zones to spawn Ezio Auditore da Firenze and Cesare Borgia out to battle.
