Following in the frosty footsteps of games like Destiny 2, For Honor is the latest game to get a Winter event, and this one's entitled the Frost Wind Festival.

 From this Thursday, December 21 players will find the battlefields given a snowy tinge and be able to access a new 2V2 mode called Ice Brawlers. As the name suggests, combatants will be fighting it out on a lake of thin ice, where one wrong move could have consequences far worse than Bambi sliding around on the stuff.

Naturally, there's a bunch of Frost Wind Festival cosmetic items too to pick up, including a new Mask outfit unique to each faction. Furthermore, Ubisoft promise that players will be able to pick up a bundle of winter themed stuff, which will change dynamically depending on what you already own so there's no fear of duplicates, from December 28.

For Honor is out now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
