Happy April Fools everybody. Don't believe everything you see, except this article. It's true, I swear. For Honor took their April Fools gag to another level. The Raving Rabbids invaded the otherwise rather serious medieval fighting game today in a surprisingly detailed event.
There's a ton of changes with the event. During the opening cutscenes that lead into a dominion match, the soldiers are wearing Rabbid masks. Then, the match beginning with all the NPC soldiers that fight over capture point B are replaced by Rabbids armed with a tiny shield and a plunger. The in-game commentary is replaced with random rabbid noises and the in-game music that plays both in the normal menus and mid-match is replaced by some funkier music too. Hell, they even added rabbid noises as the battle cry at the start of a dominion match. If you're not a fan of the Rabbids, then I have good news for you: you can kill them. I happily spent a good portion of a game smacking as many Rabbids as I could just for the fun of it.
I can't quite work out the community's feelings on this event; the For Honor subreddit seems to be kind of amused by it. I personally loved it, I literally loaded the game up for the first time in a while just to see this madness with my own eyes. I regret nothing. Although this does kinda make me want to go play Kingdom Battle again.
