Ubisoft Montreal's For Honor will soon be hitting its second anniversary, yet the developer continues to bring new content and limited time events for players to enjoy. The latest of those events, Black Prior's Riposte, is available now.
From now until 8am EDT on March 28th, players will see a transformation come over the game. The main menu, face-off screen, thematic orders, and themed soldiers and objectives have all got a new look. Players will be able to take part in a new limited-time 4v4 mode Battle of Attrition, where the Attackers try to conquer zones while the Defenders try to kill them, all to earn points for your team. As the name of the event suggests, the Black Prior's Riposte centers on the Black Prior Vortiger, and is based on the events of Season 5, Campaign 3 of the Faction War, which you can read about here if you so choose.
Those who log into the game during the event period will receive new emblem outlines to use. There will be a variety of event-exclusive items to loot too, such as weapons, the Vortiger’s Hawk ornament, Vortiger’s Riposte battle outfit, and Vortiger’s Dark Oath effect. In the store, new Anima outfits — Ardent Aquila for the Knights, Vengeful Valravn for the Vikings, Fortunate Fukuro for the Samurai, and Zealous Zhu Que for the Wu Lin — can each be purchased for 20,000 Steel, while Vortiger's Ascent, a new free-roam emote, can be purchased for 10,000 Steel.
Alongside the event came Title Update 2.06.0, which added the Harbor map to Arcade, new Survive and Kill Target objective types in Weekly Quests, and many other fixes. You can see a full list of bug fixes and gameplay improvements in the patch notes. They also released a quick hotfix shortly afterwards, Live Update 2.06.1, and you can see the brief notes for that here.
