For the champions in attendence, and the warriors watching around the world, we have gathered to celebrate... and fight! Let the Honor Games begin! Are you ready!?

At the start of the Season of Hope, For Honor’s great war between Vikings, Samurai, Knights, and Wu Lin has reached a truce just in time for the game’s third anniversary. The greatest warriors from every faction have been invited to take part in the Honor Games to celebrate the Truce of Wyverndale. This in-game event brings back a limited-time game mode, Carousel of Fire, a spin on the 4v4 Elimination Carousel of Death mode.

The Carousel Edit

Carousel of Death returns, but modified for greater entertainment! The first week will introduce Carousel of Fire, while the second will bring back an old relic from a previous Event Mode: the Hamarr of Ragnarok.

To summarize how Carousel of Death works, the first time a player dies, they respawn in five seconds, but each subsequent death adds five seconds to the timer. A team wins when all opponents are dead at the same time.

Carousel of Fire Edit

In Carousel of Fire a hot cauldron surrounded by flames is at the center of the Arena, while there are four flaming geysers at the corners with a damage boost on top of each. These geysers go off periodically, giving Heroes the chance to snag the boost or die in fire. See who can dance about the flames to victory!

This gamemode is a best-out-of-3 game.

Carousel of Ragnarok Edit

The geysers and caouldron have been removed, leaving only the great Hamarr of Ragnarok to take the field as it will spawn in the middle of the Arena. The Hamarr will remain indefinitely, and each side need to fight over who takes control of the Hamarr to decimate their enemy. Pick up the Hamarr to cull the weak before they can strike you down!

Just like in the Wrath of the Jormungandr Event Gamemode, the Hamarr can be picked up by either side. Once picked up, nearby enemies will be knocked down. The Hero's health is reduced to 75 and they are unable to guard-lock or guardbreak, removing their ability to defend themselves. However, their Light and Heavy attacks are uninterruptible, with Light Attacks dealing chain lighting and knocking the enemy back and Heavy attacks dealing fatal damage in an Area of Effect.

This gamemode is a best-out-of-5 game.

Other Map Changes Edit

The in-game map, the Sanctuary, is also getting dressed up for the occasion with fireworks, a live crowd, musicians, decorative lanterns, and for the first time ever, original fan art banners from the For Honor community. It is a celebration after all.

Arcade Quest Edit

Welcome to the Honor Games, a friendly tourney celebrating the legendary heroes of Heathmoor!

You have been invited to challenge the Leaders of Wyverndale. May the best warrior win!

Face against the Vanguards who signed the Treaty of Wyverndale. Gabrielle is a charismatic Knight who rose through the ranks swiftly, desiring fervently to protect her kin. Leader of the Raven Clan, Ljot the Raider wishes for a better future through peace. Ying is a survivor of the Qiang Pass incident, and is now an ambassador for the Wu Lin. Hailed as a skilled strategist, Tadeo believed the truce to be the best option.

Once you are done with your duels, the Leaders will congratulate you as you are rewarded event rewards for your victory.

Event Rewards Edit

Outside the Event Order, players who participate in the event can loot exclusive in-game rewards, including new peace-themed outfits, ornaments, and effects.

Players can also opt to purchase the special items that are exclusive to the event, collectively known as the Honor Games bundle. In this bundle, aside from the above noted outfits, ornaments, and effects, the four instrumental emotes are included for festivities.

    • "We celebrate the many Samurai who once fought for peace."
    • Be the faction with the most executions performed on Carousel of Fire.
  • Kensei of Wyverndale Order - February 20 - 27
    • "Tadeo believed a truce would benefit the Samurai."
    • Be the faction with the most executions performed on Carousel of Ragnarok.


  • During the event, fireworks will be visible on the War Map as they shoot up from the land, primarily from the Foul Oasis region. During the second week, while Carousel of Ragnarok is the Event Mode, the Hamarr floats above the region together with the firework festivities.
    • This may be because the Sanctuary is primarily located in that region of the Myre.
  • In the Event-exclusive version of Sanctuary, there are a multitude of Easter Eggs littered around the map. Many of these Easter Eggs can only be found by using the game's Ansel tool.
    • A special "cow" (actually a water buffalo) is situated, looking over one of the fences far behind the crowd of people. This "cow" was created as a response from the Devs (shoutout to animator Mathieu) to a request for a cow to be added to the game.
    • A number of the warriors in the crowd use visual models of soldiers seen in the game's 2015 E3 trailer, or previous event game modes.
    • The Hamarr of Ragnarok from the Wrath of the Jormungandr event appears in a crate kept in storage.
    • Emperor Gao Lei from the Zhanhu's Gambit event can be seen, standing next to the platform where the Commanders sit.
  • Away from the crowd is a soldier who is shown to be rather anxious. The developers joked that he was desperately waiting for the bathroom and to wait for the second week to see his fate. In the second week, he is seen laying on the ground with a puddle indicating he could hold no longer.
  • As mentioned above, artwork of fan artists are pinned up as banners around the map. There are 8 artists named, four during the Carousel of Fire map, and four during the Carousel of Ragnarok map. Their names are as follows:
