The world at war has given rise over a battle-strewn history to those fated few who have towered over the no-mans-land as gods. Now Ubisoft is giving gamers a chance to stand on the mightiest shoulders of warriors.
For Honor revealed its premiere trailer at E3, teasing gamers with a sophisticated battle system that demands you to be both on the offensive and defensive. leave yourself open to attack on you could be out of the fight sooner rather than later.
Carve a path of destruction through the battlefield in For Honor! 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.
The Art of Battle, For Honor’s innovative control system, puts you in total control of your heroes, each with distinct skills and weapons, as you fight for land, glory, and honor. As a skilled warrior on a believable battleground, you annihilate all soldiers, archers, and opposing heroes who stand in your way.
For Honor will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 system, and Windows PC.
I haven’t actually been able to really put a name to For Honor’s genre. It’s close-quarters melee combat. ‘Shooter with swords’ is something we’ve been throwing around, and it’s pretty accurate. People have tried to call it a MOBA, but it’s not really a MOBA. It seems a little like one when you look at it, but it doesn’t play that way at all. I think what’s going to happen is we’re going to release the game and then our audience is going to name it. I think they will be the ones to really name that genre.
A stickler for labels then.
Key Features for For Honor will include:
• Choosing your hero among the three greatest legacies of warriors: Knights, Vikings, or Samurai. Able to turn the tide of battle and make their faction victorious, each warrior comes with their own weapon set and play style.
• Capturing control points, and slaughter enemies with a groundbreaking multi-player mode.
• The Art of Battle control system lets you wield the weight of your weapon and feel the power and impact of each strike.
• Customisation of your warrior and garb, including chest, shoulders, and helmet.
All that’s left to do now is to pillage, slay and plunder our ways to becoming the greates warriors of ever. Something we as gamers can appreciate.
For Honor is slated for release on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC
