The year might be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean we can’t fit one more crossover into Dying Light 2 Stay Human before we see 2023 out.
As we mentioned in our Sneak Peek, our last crossover event of the year will be with For Honor. So, Pilgrims, it’s time to sharpen your longswords, axes and katanas, because to fight off these noble warriors, you’re gonna need every advantage you can get!
Ubisoft’s medieval-inspired brawler pits some of the Middle Ages’ toughest factions against each other in up to 4v4 combat and seemed like a natural collaboration for us. First, we’re both about action, with a little sprinkling of dismemberment and decapitation. Secondly, and most importantly, we both have diehard communities who love to be creative when it comes to combat.
So, get ready to practice your warcry for when you head into battle. And if Japanese, Icelandic or Latin isn’t one of your spoken tongues, don’t worry, we’ll forgive the pronunciation. It’s time to scream “Jinjyo ni shoubu” (or “Let’s have an honorable showdown”) as we head into talking about the event!
Faction Invasion Event
Those familiar with the lore of For Honor will know that these factions are entangled in a bitter war while fighting for supremacy of the map.
With three of the game’s factions hearing that the city of Villedor would provide them a tactical advantage over their foes, they believed that the last bastion of humanity would see them be ultimately victorious. These warriors have seen thousands of battlefields, but nothing could prepare them for what lay ahead: hordes of zombies and one hard-to-kill hero, you!
As these warriors invade The City, you’ll see a cloud of fog appear from which they will emerge. These warriors can be friendly and will attack zombies or rival factions, but that’s the minority; most of them will see you as just another body to add to their tally.
Not only will you need to put up a fight to survive, you’ll be rewarded for killing the Wardens, Kensei and Berserkers that find themselves in Villedor. Each of these factions will have different levels of attacking threat, HP and damage, so each will pose a different challenge.
And make sure to watch out for their taunts as they will recover vital HP that might put you on the backfoot!
For defeating 15 For Honor warriors in duels, you’ll earn the legendary Berserker’s Hand Axe (and blueprint), which heals you when you decapitate an enemy and inflicts a bleeding effect on those who are caught by the blade.
Additionally, the ultimate reward will require you to personally kill a total of 30 For Honor warriors; for doing so, you’ll get the Berserker outfit and paraglider.
And finally, for banding together as a community of warriors and killing 5,000,000 of these foes, everyone will get the Warlord’s Shield Charm, which will allow you perform actions without consuming stamina immediately after decapitating an enemy.
For those who complete all the goals, they will earn everything that’s available in the Berserker Bundle for absolutely free. However, if you wish to represent another faction, we have prepared two special bundles: the Kensei Bundle and the Warden Bundle. Both feature a unique appearance, deadly weapon (with blueprint), charm and paraglider, so make sure to check them out in the in-game store, accessible via the main menu!
So, Pilgrims, it’s time to train your parrying skills, swordsmanship and creative combat ideas as you’ll be getting up close and personal with these fierce warriors. And one last bit of advice: “Nulla misericordia!”
