Ubisoft has just revealed it’s next big Game, For Honor. A game where there is only melee combat and focuses on brutal and intense battles between three fractions; Vikings, Knights, and samurai. The game is for Xbox One. PS4, and PC in 2016.
A four-on-four demo showed objective-based multiplayer played on PlayStation 4. Each team pushed toward a central objective with a massive army of AI units. A knight player engaged against two samurai and fended off their attacks before an ally came to help. The combat on show was brutal and highly lethal, with violent fights ending quickly before players moved on to the next fight, objective, or mass of disposable soldier fodder. Gruesome executions punctuated each fight.
