Ubisoft® Carves a Path of Destruction through the Battlefield with debut of For Honor


Los Angeles — June 15, 2015 — Today, during its E3 Press Conference, Ubisoft announced the development of For Honor, a new IP mixing skill, strategy and team play with visceral, melee combat. For Honor is in development for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC.

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, For Honor drops gamers into the chaos of a raging battlefield during an ongoing war between three Great Factions: the bold Knights (the Legions), the brutal Vikings (the Warborn) and the enigmatic Samurai (the Chosen). For every battle, players can choose which warrior they want to embody amongst the unique Heroes from this pantheon and use their distinct skills and weapons to fight for land, people and honor, decimating all soldiers, archers and opposing Heroes who stand in their way.

For Honor includes both a thrilling multiplayer and an engaging, single-player campaign, letting players conquer their foes alone or with friends. Tense gameplay mixes the skill and ruthlessness of a shooter with the quick, heat of the battle decision-making of team-based tactical games. The Art of Battle, Sanctuary’s innovative control scheme, gives players total command of their weapons by creating a direct connection between the input on the controller and the moves performed on screen. Players choose precisely where to block, where to attack and how to adapt their approach to each battle in real time.

“Our vision with For Honor 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, and the danger of a chaotic battle when you don’t know where the next strike will come from,” said Jason Vandenberghe, Creative Director, Ubisoft. “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.”

Fans who want to get the latest news and content about Sanctuary and have a chance to play the game first can register to For Honor’s Backstage Program at www.forhonorgame.com and follow the game’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

For Honor looks absolute incredible! A pity it's an Ubisoft game. Hopefully it retains 75% of this visual quality on PC when it's released.

The animations are some of the most realistic and fluid I have ever sen, hope they polish them even more. Definitely a game to look out for.

This game looks interesting but is Ubi. They will somehow manage to downgrade it one way or the other.

Vikings - check!
Samurais - check!
Knights - check!
Vikings, Vikings, Vikings - fucking CHECK!

Honestly i freaking loved it!
This is the type of game i been waiting for patiently since, forever.
As a big fan of historical war movies like Last Samurai, Braveheart, King Arthur...etc. this is right up my alley, especially now that they added vikings!

Of all MP focus games, this is the one i would happily pay PS+ for.
But as MorusLP said, has campaign so thankfully i dont need to, so i am fucking hyped!

Even if it gets graphical downgrade in Ubisoft tradition, as long as that visceral badass combat is in, i am happy!
I hope we get to customize our warriors from head to toe in each faction.

It is Ubi .... who gives a crap at this point ?
Commented on 2015-06-16 16:03:23
Very thrilling sword fight......I also would like to see it in SP as well. Movements, graphics and sounds are awesome!

It says in describtion there is single player campaign, had to read it carefully to make sure i wasent only taking on someones word lol.

Ok. I'm looking forward to this one. Yes, it's Ubi, but they still make great games (Far Cry series, Assassin's Creed series, Watchdog) even if they do lie about their graphics.
