This thrilling tale will see you storm castles, decimating enemy strongholds and eliminating enemy bosses to turn the tide and help your faction to win the war.
‘Art of Battle’ System
To slaughter your enemies effectively, you will have to master a unique battling system, fine-tuned by Ubisoft to give For Honor an edge over previous Hack ‘N’ Slash titles. Finesse, timing, carefulness and attention to detail are all required, with a momentary lapse in concentration the difference between victory and death.
For Honor introduces combat mechanics that are easy to grasp, but difficult to master. The control scheme follows a rock-paper-scissors format that will determine the outcome of your attack or defense maneuvers. Once you lock onto an enemy, you can choose to move your weapon left, right or up to determine which area of your foe you will attack.
This same movement also dictates where your warrior will form their guard position when defending against an attack. If you’re guarding the same area that your opponent chooses to attack, you will successfully stop the strike. If not… Well, we all know the result of a battleaxe to the face. When other factors, such as guard breaks and throws, are added to the equation, it is clear that the For Honor Art of Battle system offers plenty of meat to sink your teeth into.
Brutal Multiplayer Brawls
The battle system really takes form in For Honor‘s multiplayer mode. Two players who have mastered the Art of Battle system can create truly spectacular moments, unlike any previous Hack ‘N’ Slash game has offered before. With 1v1 duels, 2v2 brawls and and all-out 4v4 carnage to enjoy, For Honor has enough about it to keep you slashing away for some time.
For Honor is as brutal as it is entertaining. The attention to detail that Ubisoft have put into the game is exceptional. From the moment you step out onto the battleground, you will witness stunning visuals and bloody combat.
For Honor is a remarkable feat that could really boost the genre’s popularity. It’s truly unlike anything that you’ll have ever experienced. Exceptional attention to detail, a revolutionary combat system and an intense multiplayer experience – Ubisoft have seemingly followed the recipe for creating a truly glorious modern video game.
