For Honor's Theater of Bones Halloween event kicks off on October 26 - and if you've been wondering why Year 7 Season 3 is called "Deceit," you're about to find out. The Season will take a darker turn as the forbidden offerings of the Ghost Festival - a Wu Lin celebration to honor the dead, introduced on September 14 - are revealed to be a trap. The warriors' souls are claimed by the White Bone Spirit, who forces them to perform in her theater of evil illusions. Their one hope is her nemesis, the Monkey King Wukong, who's ready to ruin the White Bone Spirit's show and free her "performers."

The battle with the White Bone Spirit - available from October 26 until November 16 - unfolds as a new, narrative-driven PvE game mode set in a Chinese opera-inspired theater. Players will battle through four theatrical scenarios - each featuring a different set design, as well as special lighting and visual effects - before facing the true form of the White Bone Spirit herself. Players can also purchase the Monkey King Wukong as a new Hero Skin for the Shaolin, and grab a new, free Event Pass to unlock a new ornament, battle outfit, and mood effect.

This phase of Year 7 Season 3 will also feature new armor variations, as well as Hero Fests - during which players can try a Hero for free (and purchase them at a discount) for a week - for the Shaolin, Zhanhu, and Aramusha. A unique execution is also released at the beginning of each Hero Fest, and the Zhanhu Hero Fest will also coincide with the return of the Zhanhu's Gambit game mode, which will be available from November 23-30.
