For Honor blends strategic thinking and swordplay with shooter like pacing

For Honor’s action blends strategic thinking and deliberate swordplay with shooter-like pacing and melee crowd control. Hurling players into chaotic scenarios as a powerful special-ops warrior, it takes a unique approach to medieval warfare.

Creative Director Jason Vandenberghe explains:

“Our vision with Sanctuary is to create a game that ignites the same emotions that a warrior would feel on a real battlefield. The tension of face-to-face encounters with deadly enemies, the adrenaline of charging alongside your army against the opposition, the danger of a chaotic battle when you don’t know where the next strike will come from,”

“It’s a game that celebrates the art of sword-fighting and the legacy of the legendary warriors from those great legacies, the knights, the Vikings and the samurai that we brought together in one single experience.”

For Honor will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC. We will bring you any new information as soon as it becomes available.
