Developer: Ubisoft
Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC
 
Viking / Knights / Samurai
 
The deep combat creates tense stand-offs, as it's all centered on selecting one of three directions in which to block or thrust. Match your opponent's blow and you'll enjoy a successful riposte; get it wrong, and you're gonna bleed. The result is a situation in which both you and your opponent size each other up, watching our respective blades flick from stance to stance, both playing defensively while weighing up the risks associated with making the first move.
 
An added dimension is created by the additional three players on each team.

 

Some gameplay fotage:

I really liked the look of this, but have 2 misgivings.
1) Ubisoft.
2) If they don't fix the spelling for the UK version, then I'm out.

Edit: please don't take point 2 as me trying to start a flame war with the North American posters over what is the "correct" spelling. I'm tyred of all that bullsh*t....

I have the same fear with Ubisoft. - Put it this way. The past two years my favorite game from them has been Trials Fusion. LOL

Agree about Ubisoft, wasn't really keen on buying any more of their games any time soon (yet despite this I sat and watched their whole conference???) but I thought this looked great. For years I've wanted a game just like this where you're just a random soldier in the middle of a huge melee battle.

 

Looking forward to seeing more of it.

"I know what you're all thinking. When can you play this game?"

 

No, actually. We're wondering if there's more to the game than 4v4 deathmatch.

Hopefully they've got campaign mode, and several other fun MP modes like CTF, FFA, etc.

This looks pretty good actually. For once, Ubisoft have come out with something decent. They just need to execute it right and put effort into a good single player mode, if it's online only, then it's a waste.

What's got me intrigued is the combat system. It seems slower and more methodical or tactical even than your usual melee combat. Almost like a game of rock- paper-scissors.
A game of chess is like a sword fight. You must think first before you move.

Hold down a button to parry in a combat game = fail.

 

Didn't pay attention to anything else really, guess it looks okayish.

It will have an offline story campaign supposedly.

Welp, this confirms 2 things:

 

1. There IS a campaign.

2. There are multiple MP modes.

That's fantastic then. I'm keeping a watchful eye on this game. Ubisoft have potential with this game IMO.

For Honor – Cinematic Story Trailer + Gameplay Walkthrough E3 2016

Ubisoft has released the cinematic story and the gameplay walkthrough E3 2016 trailers for For Honor. For Honor looks really interesting and is currently planned for a February 14th release.

Hopefully Ubisoft don't screw this up. The Dev seems like he is passionate about the game so its very likely that the game will be good.

 

In the future I want them to put more factions in the game. Islamic empires, Mongolians and Spartans would be a start.

Ubisoft. Ah, Ubisoft. I see you, with your pretty games that look amazing before they're released and then you realise that everything the game has to offer was in the trailer and the game just about passes for satisfactory but you keep on playing anyway in case the game gets better but it doesn't and then the next thing you know it's completed and the sequel is announced and then you hope for the best and the cycle begins again. 

 

I really want Ubisoft to make a good as game as the concept, but they haven't done that since the first Assassin's Creed. 

 

I skipped through the gameplay video and it looks f*cking amazing, but I'm certain it'll fall short of its potential, as their games pretty much always do.

The combat system got improved a lot, since you have to parry in a direction now, unlike when I posted that earlier comment.

 

In the E3 show the combat looked like a lot of fun, though it needs more gore.

They sure did. They were by no means as barbaric as they've been depicted over the years. I'm not an expert or anything, but they are a real fascination of mine and you'd be surprised how civilised they seem to have been.

I like the combat system already. So many games today pay no attention to this aspect of the game. They try to make this huge big map, fill it up with all this content, which is great and all. But when it comes to there combat systems........oh my is about what comes to mind at first. When combat system are weak, I usually feel really distant for the fight itself. I love these games where I feel every hit I give or receive. Makes for a more interesting gameplay for sure. I'm just wondering if the single player will be: you pick which side your on at the start or are you playing all three sides as a playthrough and it just switches back and forth the entire time.

 

Doesn't really matter to me which they pick but I would prefer you pick a side at the start and then you could have three playthroughs with totally different single player playthroughs for all. But I know that is very far fetched this day and age for games like this. It would be awesome though.

 

 This game stood out to me the most from E3, a deffinate preorder for me.

Anyone interested in this game at all? I was skeptical at first but was able to get into the closed Alpha over the weekend and mess around for a few hours, and while it's far from perfect, and there's a fair amount that can be criticized, it has definitely piqued my interest. I'll be posting a review video in the next couple days of my overall impressions, but for now, here's a quick montage I threw together of some 1v1 gameplay.

 

Let me know what you think.

Cool stuff.  I've been interested in the game since first hearing about it in the spring.  Hopefully there's a good single-player campaign, but I'm definitely looking forward to sticking my sword through other players, too.

Ya, pretty much the clip that made me want to make a montage.

There's a beta sign up link in the description of the video. Not sure when it goes live though. Probably Dec or Jan if I had to guess.

They pulled a nice SW: Battlefront on this game.

 

No content whatsoever, 3 maps, 9 heroes. Gamemodes are practically the same.

 

I'm good at it, so that's a plus. but apart from that, it's reallly mweeeeh.

Game is pretty good.

 

It's a multiplayer game that takes a lot of coordination with friends, rather than some games these days like Battlefield 1 where I can play it with friends, but I don't really feel like I'm experiencing it with them.

 

My only issue with the game is that I'm not entirely sure it's balanced.  I haven't played a ton to judge it just yet, but the Conqueror in specific seems to be pretty cheap due to all the stunning he does when you block his attacks, and when he blocks you.

 

The customization seems to be pretty damn awesome which I really appreciate, from armor bonus to cosmetic customization.  I don't know if I'll get it at release though.  I was never big into games like this, in terms of the theme, but it's a good time with my friends who really love it, so probably will pick it up just to play with them.

 

Also Player vs. AI in every mode is much appreciated.

 

Oh and my big concern is with the armor and weapon upgrades.  Is the game going to match people with a ton of armor and upgrades against someone who just got the game?  With that aspect, and all these different characters, plus DLC heroes along the way, I'm super concerned for balance.

If that's your only issue with this game I'm sure they'd love to take your €20 a map.
