“Carve a path of destruction through the battlefield in For Honor, a brand-new game developed by the renowned Ubisoft Montreal studio.
Enter the chaos of a raging war as a bold knight, brutal viking, or mysterious samurai, three of the greatest legendary warriors. For Honor is a fast-paced, competitive experience mixing skill, strategy, and team play with visceral melee combat.” (YouTube)
For Honor looks like an incredible game. The above trailer from E3 2015 hypes it up, with lots of brutal combat between knights, samurai, and vikings. Below the break is a pre-alpha gameplay trailer, showing off the multiplayer experience, pitting four knights against four samurai. It looks fast paced, tactical, visceral, and brutal, with lots of things happening across the map. The combat looks different to conventional combat too, with the way you can align your attacks and defence. I’m intrigued as to whether there’s any single player campaign available, or if it’s purely competitive.
Either way, I’ll be keeping my eye on this (even if honour is spelt incorrectly!). Onwards!
