The Wu Lin elite hold a Ghost Festival, an annual celebration meant to honor the spirits of their ancestors with offerings and performances. In a gesture of openness, the nobles invite poor warriors to the festivities. The warriors must strictly leave the food offerings to the departed but, desperate and starving, the warriors cannot help but eat them. As dusk falls, an odd sickness takes hold of the rule breakers... and they fear something has gone terribly wrong.
Launch Event: Ghost Rites
The Ghost Rites a sacred event where guests are meant to honor their ancestors. Food offerings are laid out, shrines are built, and theatrical entertainment is provided for the departed. Many guests have dusted off old armor sets and weapons that once belonged to their predecessors -- a tribute to those that came before.
To mark the launch of For Honor's Y7S3: Deceit, participate in "Ghost Rites" free event pass and unlock unique event loot. Available only from September 14th to October 5th.
The Ghost Rites has strict rules to follow: from leaving offerings untouched to a ban on fighting after dark. But the elite hosts have also ensured new weapons are readily available for all warriors in attendance. Once the guests finally give in to their hunger, the rule-breaking begins. As night falls, warriors pick up their new weapons, and fight whoever they come across. This season, attend The Ghost Festival and unlock 100 tiers of rewards for all heroes! Available during For Honor's Y7S3: Deceit.
