ESCAPE WITH THE EMPEROR IN FOR HONOR®’S ‘ZHANHU’S GAMBIT’ EVENT, PLAYABLE NOW UNTIL 2ND JANUARY
NEW SEASONAL EVENT BRINGS A LIMITED-TIME GAME MODE, NEW CUSTOMISATION ITEMS AND MORE
LONDON, UK — 20th December, 2019 — Today, Ubisoft announced that the final Year 3 seasonal event for For Honor®, Zhanhu’s Gambit, is playable now until 2nd January across all available platforms. Zhanhu’s Gambit will delve into the journey of Sun Da and his role in the conflict between the Wu Lin and the Blackstone Legion. Players will be able to enjoy a limited-time game mode and a variety of customisation items and rewards themed around the event, including orders, arcade quest, outfits, weapons, effects, emotes and ornaments.
The new limited-time game mode introduced during the event, Emperor’s Escape, will let players re-live the escape of the Wu Lin Emperor from the Blackstone Legion in the aftermath of their conflict at Qiang Pass. In this four-player PvE mode, players will have to escort the Emperor and protect him against hordes of enemies to secure his escape. To do so, players will need to capture zones in order to move across the map. Every time a zone is captured, the Emperor progresses to that zone, and a new one is unlocked for capture. As they progress through the zones, players will come across increasingly strong assailants, including “cursed” enemies with special modifiers. Teamwork and skill will be key to keep the Emperor alive until players can eventually reach and defeat the Blackstone commander.
From now until 6th January, players can purchase the Zhanhu’s Gambit Bundle at 45,000 Steel per Hero, which includes items such as outfits, emote, effects, and ornaments. This price may differ based on items players have already unlocked from the bundle. For a full list of what’s included in Zhanhu’s Gambit Bundle, please visit: https://support.ubi.com/Faqs/000052326
