Ubisoft teased Shadows of the Hitokiri, a new update for For Honor, during its Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) press briefing today in Los Angeles. The event is part of Year 3, Season 2, and it’s available now through June 27.

The trailer talked about a woman samurai who slaughtered every one in a village, becoming the “spirit of death.” Sakura is the spirit of death, and “she brought a curse that’ll doom us all,” the voice said.

The new Soul Rush game mode has heroes fighting in Kaidan, a dark village that legends say Sakura’s victims haunt. You defeat soldiers and collect Souls in secure them in Soul Zones for their team. The first to 1,000 Souls leads to the other team to break, giving a chance for a win. Winners get rewards available just during the event.

For Honor recently came to PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now, Sony’s streaming service.
