For a limited time you can jump into the battlegrounds of For Honor and wield Mjölnir, the…wait I’m told that’s actually The Mighty Hammer, an artifact that gives you the ability to control lightning and do a ground smash that unleashes a massive area of attack.
Are we SURE it’s not Mjölnir?
All kidding aside, this looks like a pretty awesome event and just another bit of post-launch support for Ubisoft’s stellar action game. Check it out before it’s gone on October 3rd.
Here’s the press release:
For Honor® Launches In-Game Event, Wrath of the Jormungandr, Playable Today Until October 3
It’s Hammer Time! Get Ready to Wield the Mighty Hammer in Storr Stronghold
MONTREAL — September 19, 2019 — Today, Ubisoft announces the Year 3 Season 3 For Honor® in-game event, Wrath of the Jormungandr starting today until October 3 at 6am PT. With more than 20 million players, For Honor is available on PlayStation®4 entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and Windows PC. For Honor is now available on UPLAY+,* Ubisoft’s subscription service.
The in-game event will come with a special limited-time game mode, Ragnarok, which transforms the Breach game mode in celebration of the Jormungandr, their Hamarr, and the map Storr Stronghold. Players will have the chance to wield The Mighty Hammer, creating remarkable combat with opponents in this special version of Breach mode. The Hammer is spawned by the deadly Sea Serpent, and will change the moveset of each character, adding two new special abilities to take on enemy factions:
- Chain Lightning: An ability that does medium damage and has a small knockback, and jumps to nearby enemies.
- Ground Smash: A one shot area of effect attack on the ground at the position of the wielder.
The event also introduces a new Battle Outfits, Storr Champion, as well as fantastical Illustrious Outfits, flowing with the true spirit of the Serpent.
Year 3, Season 3 ’Hulda’ brought players the Jormungandr, a feral warrior who is part of the Viking Faction of For Honor. Following the events in Dead Shades, another legendary battle marked Heathmoor’s history. During Year 3 Season 1, Campaign 1, the Knights had conquered most of the continent. As they marched on Valkenheim, they clashed with the Vikings of Thornfinn Coast in Battle 28. To everyone’s surprise, the Vikings held the fortress, repelled all enemies from the North, and won all the remaining campaigns. The third Journals of Heathmoor tells the battle that led the Vikings on a path to absolute victory in Season Year 3 Season 1.
