For Honor launched in 2017 and whilst the community at large might be keen to see the developers at Ubisoft Montreal make For Honor 2, the fact is there's still plenty of life in the game.
After launching Season 2 of Year 5, the game has no intention of slowing down, and we can expect to see the game's customary Halloween event return too.
This year it arrives in the form of a crossover event, as For Honor heroes clash with the Dead by Daylight trapper in a new halloween game mode. The “survivors of the fog” event features the trapper hunting heroes in 4v4 pvp
Here's everything you need to know.

For Honor x Dead by Daylight Event | Start Time Countdown
20 October 2021 -
Ubisoft has announced that this year’s Halloween event, featuring a crossover with Dead by Daylight. To celebrate Halloween, the Trapper from Dead by Daylight has slipped into For Honor and will not spare anyone!
Beginning 21st October until 11th November, For Honor will have a limited time event in partnership with Dead by Daylight, called “Survivors of the Fog”. During this limited-time event, players will be able to play the “Survivors” game mode in a spooky environment, based in Dead by Daylight’s universe. This game mode is a 4v4 PvP game mode where minions are replaced with a powerful AI, the Trapper, roaming the map looking to prey on the heroes.
During this event, players will be able to play through a Free Event Pass and gain access to a multitude of rewards such as a new Battle Outfit, an Effect as well as an Ornament. Along with the free event pass rewards, players will also have access to limited-time Dead by Daylight themed executions, illustrious outfits and an exclusive signature.

5 October 2021
Take this with a giant pinch of salt but according to the fairly reputable site LeaksByDaylight, there's an upcoming Dead by Daylight x For Honor crossover happening for Halloween. No other details have been shared on how this will work, but we're intrigued. Hopefully, more news will be revealed in the coming week.
1 October 2021
It's now officially October and the spooky season is nearly here. Get ready for some For Honor Halloween news shortly!
When Does The For Honor Halloween Event Start?
To get an idea of when we can expect to see the next Halloween event start and end in 2021, it makes sense to take a look at the previous events.
Here's a quick reminder of when they started and ended in past years:
- Monsters of the Otherworld - October 22 until November 12, 2020
- Fangs of the Otherworld - October 17 until November 1, 2019
- Return of the Otherworld - October 25 until November 8, 2018
- Feast of the Otherworld - October 19 until November 2 2017
As you can see, the game typically starts the Halloween event on the third week of October, lasting around two weeks.
Assuming the event follows the same pattern we can likely expect to see this year's Halloween Event start on October 21, 2021, potentially ending on November 4, 2021.
What To Expect From The New For Honor Halloween Event?
If the 2021 event looks to replicate the festivities of 2020 then we can likely expect to see the return of two monstrous event game modes, spooky Halloween-themed loot and soldiers dressed up as nightmarish monsters.
The two game modes that will likely return are
"The dead have risen and they are looking to add you to their ranks! In this Dominion style mode skeletons are deadly foes who give massive points and capturing zones will only yield temporary points. Bash some bones and push the other team to break!"
"Capture zones to gain a special boost. Use the boost to slay demons for points. Reach 1000 points to break and kill the enemy."
As with past events, jumping back in to play the game during the Halloween event will likely give you an automatic chance of unlocking Halloween-themed Otherworld bonuses through random drops at the end of all matches.
Typically Ubisoft also release the items from previous years’ celebrations which is great if you've only recently jumped into the game and want to earn some of the games oldest cosmetic items.
It might not all be old though, there's a good chance that the game adds some new unique event-exclusive items
