Ubisoft Announces New IP: For Honor [Update: Gameplay]



Ubisoft announced a new I.P. at their E3 2015 press conference this afternoon: For Honor, a fast-paced multiplayer melee combat title where you’ll get to play as three character classes: Knights, Vikings, and Samurai. Each of those three classes will have distinct skills and weapons. Here’s a feature list provided by Ubisoft:


  • Choose 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.


  • Capture control points, and slaughter enemies with our 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.


  • Inspire fear in your enemies by customizing your warrior, including your chest, shoulders, and helmet.


For Honor is in development for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. In addition to the above trailer, Ubisoft demonstrated a multiplayer match from the game featuring four players at their press conference, and you can watch this below.
