The gameplay looks great and throws an interesting wrench in the mix. Three different types of ancient and medieval warriors will be weaved into the game as you can play as a Viking, Samurai, or Knight.

The For Honor Combat System allows players to approach their opponent in three different stances, while countering and manoeuvring in real time as well.
The game’s passionate Game’s Creative Director Jason Vandenberghe took to the stage to showcase not just the gameplay, but the great story that will come along with For Honor. Take a look at the story’s gameplay trailer below:
Forhonorgame.com is now open for anyone to sign up for its upcoming alpha access (limited spaces and no confirmed date). Ubisoft also announced that the game will be hitting store shelves early next year; on February 14th, 2017.
David is a lover of all things nerdy & geeky! (Nerd IS the new cool after all!)
From the wee age of 6 he made his way to a Canadian Tire, purchased a SNES for $200 in in-store credit money (Canadian Tire money for Canadians out there), and hasn’t looked back!
He loves the classics like Donkey Kong, Mario, and Diablo, but is deep into the new age of gaming with Heroes of the Storm, EA’s NHL series, Destiny, and indies like Fez, Thomas Was Alone, and Mark of the Ninja.
