The Great Holy Grail War is making a return to Fate/Grand Order. Its event crossover with Fate/Apocrypha, Inheritance of Glory, is back for a rerun, two years after its original 2020 run. New Masters and players that missed the original iteration will have a chance to get a new playable Servant. The Fate/Grand Order Apocrypha rerun begins on March 10, 2022 and continues through March 23, 2022.
Check out an animated promo for the event.
Inheritance of Glory is based on Fate/Apocrypha, a sister property of Fate/Grand Order. Fate/Apocrypha tells the story of a conflict between the Mage’s Association and the Yggdmillennia clan, as they hold a contest for possession of the wish-granting Holy Grail. They launch a “Great Holy Grail War,” a twist on the Holy Grail War ritual at the core of the Fate franchise. In the Great Holy Grail War, two teams, Red and Black, summon seven Servants each to compete in what can best be described as a superpowered round of Team Deathmatch. Fate/Apocrypha is also the “source fiction” of FGO Servants like Vlad III, Jack the Ripper, William Shakespeare, Jeanne d’Arc, Spartacus, Amakusa Shirou Tokisada, and Astolfo.
As a rerun event, the Fate/Grand Order Fate/Apocrypha crossover is tuned for an easier grind compared to the first run. Players will fight in battles to gather event currency to trade for goodies. Raid Battle segments will challenge the whole player base to reduce a boss’s health pool through repeated battles. At the end of the main story, players will receive a free 4-Star Servant: Sieg. Sieg is the protagonist of Fate/Apocrypha and appears in-game as a Caster-class Servant. In the series, Sieg is a homunculus, grown by the Yggdmillennia clan to use as a source of magical energy, who develops a sense of self and joins the Great Holy Grail War to win his freedom.
Players can also spend Saint Quartz on the premium summoning banner to win some rare and limited 4- and 5-Star Servants. The limited Servants are the Assassin-class Semiramis, Saber-class Astolfo, and the Ruler-class Amakusa Shirou Tokisada. Other Servants getting a drop rate boost are Mordred, Achilles, and Vlad III (Berserker). 4-Star Servants on rate-up include Chiron, Atalante and her Alter version, Astolfo’s Rider version, Siegfried, Frankenstein, and the 3-Star Caster Avicebron.
Fate/Grand Order is available on Android and iOS. The Fate/Apocrypha crossover runs until March 23, 2022. The Fate/Apocrypha anime series can be viewed on Netflix.
