For Honor is a great looking multiplayer from Ubisoft that pits Vikings, Samurai and Knights against each other in brutal close quarters melee combat.
For Honor was first announced at last year’s E3, and really impressed with its epic battles and strategic combat. Since then Ubisoft have been busy adding all kinds of bells and whistles, with the latest gameplay video looking pretty damn amazing. For Honor will feature a full solo campaign, 2 player co-op and epic multiplayer battles.
Although the epic battles look spectacular, with you charging across battlefields and storming castles, it’s the realistic duelling combat that really makes the game stand out. There are grunts that you can slice through with ease, but if you come up against another player or a senior member of the opposite forces things get a little more tactical and skill based – with you having to time attacks, dodges an parries as you battle for dominance on the battlefield.
No date has been announced for the Beta yet, but Ubisoft says it is launching soon, and potential players can sign up for the Alpha and Beta testing now. Signing up not only gives you a chance to play the game early, but you can also win custom consoles and other For Honor loot. So what are you waiting for? We’ll see you on the battlefield!
