The in-game event will come with a special limited-time game mode, Ragnarok, which transforms the Breach game mode in celebration of the Jormungandr, their Hamarr, and the map Storr Stronghold. Players will have the chance to wield The Mighty Hammer, creating remarkable combat with opponents in this special version of Breach mode. The Hammer is spawned by the deadly Sea Serpent, and will change the moveset of each character, adding two new special abilities to take on enemy factions:
· Chain Lightning: An ability that does medium damage and has a small knockback, and jumps to nearby enemies.
· Ground Smash: A one shot area of effect attack on the ground at the position of the wielder.
The event also introduces a new Battle Outfit, Storr Champion, as well as fantastical Illustrious Outfits, flowing with the true spirit of the Serpent. In addition, the event also adds a new execution, Rampage of Ragnarok, as well as themed weapons.
Year 3, Season 3 ’Hulda’ brought players the Jormungandr, a feral warrior who is part of the Viking Faction of For Honor. Following the events in Dead Shades, another legendary battle marked Heathmoor's history. During Year 3 Season 1, Campaign 1, the Knights had conquered most of the continent. As they marched on Valkenheim, they clashed with the Vikings of Thornfinn Coast in Battle 28. To everyone's surprise, the Vikings held the fortress, repelled all enemies from the North, and won all the remaining campaigns. The Wrath of the Jormungandr event tells the battle that led the Vikings on a path to absolute victory in Year 3 Season 1.
