With the understanding that Ubisoft never holds back when producing a game, they’ve proven themselves again by producing a highly detailed and well-executed piece with, For Honor. Not only did they go H.A.M. with making sure the single player story mode is on point, the game can also be played in a multiplayer mode that allows you to team up with fellow players to take over your Kingdom of choice.
For Honor is a non-fantasy hack and slash video game set during the Medieval period. Players can play as a character from three different factions: The Legion, The Chosen, and The Warborn. The three factions represent knights, samurais, and Vikings. In the game, the three different classes has different abilities and weaponry. Therefore, this leaves all of the customization wide-open and available for players. For instance, the gender of the characters and the body armor worn by them can be changed and customized to the players liking completely.
Players fight against each other with melee weapons such as axes and swords in an all out medieval style brawl. The game also features competitive multiplayer modes that can support up to eight players who are split evenly into two different teams. When matches, start players will be accompanied by numerous online teammates who assist each other in winning the ultimate battle.
Overall I think this title will definitely be a game that gets players excited and also supports a high-level MMO experience that’s sure to wow the players. This title is set to release in 2016. Be sure to follow Ubisoft for news and updates on what’s to follow.
