For Honor: Ubisoft’s New Game Blends Strategic Thinking, Swordplay & Shooter-Like Pacing, Gathering Much Praise
Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer for their upcoming new IP, For Honor, which showcases the press first impressions of playing the game for the first game during the show.
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 offers three factions, the Vikings, the Samurai and the Knights
Playing as legendary heroes from one of three factions, the Viking Warborn, the Chosen Samurai or the knightly Legions, you’ll spend much of For Honor’s single-player campaign and multiplayer matches stomping through enemy infantry and archers, clearing a path for your own troops to pour through, while also taking part in lethal duels with other champions.
“You’re the top one percent. The characters you play in For Honor are the difference makers. They’re the ones who get called in to finish the fight,” says Vandenberghe.
“You need to make tactical decisions about which pieces of this ground you’re going to fight over. And then you encounter other badasses who are equally as important as you, and you duel them to find out who’s the bigger badass. If you’re dead, it was them.”
For Honor will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC. We will bring you any new information as soon as it becomes available.
