The most terrifying warcry: bwaaaaaaar!
Ubisoft has added gangs of armoured Rabbids to For Honor for a 24 hour limited-time event.
The hyper-active, buck-toothed creatures are pretty much Ubisoft’s mascot, and they will be acting as enemies and storming the gates in For Honor until 9pm PT / midnight ET / 5am UK / 2pm AEST. You’ve not got long to get involved, but anyone who does will get a melee pack reward.
While the event is clearly themed around April Fools, it is completely playable and not a joke in any form other than the fact that it’s absolutely bananas. There are plenty of fake April Fools jokes out there today, though, so keep your eyes peeled.
This Rabbids event is part of For Honor’s third year of content drops, known as Year of the Harbinger. Harbinger, of course, means something that proclaims an arrival. Of all the things For Honor could introduce, we didn’t realise that it would be proclaiming the arrival of a swarm of rodent samurai. Rabbids are rodents, right?
Matt Purslow is IGN UK’s News and Entertainment Writer, and will now petition Ubisoft to make a For Honor + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle game. You can follow him on Twitter.
