For Honor

The unbelievably tall Aisha Tyler (LANA!) introduced something else interesting after the new South Park RPG that got people excited. After talking about how excited people are about games, Tyler brought on the relatively diminutive UbiCEO, Yves Guillemot. He introduced a new game, in a new genre. What?

Featuring some angry Viking-looking, stabby medieval men, the new game, an action brawler of sorts is called For Honor.

“In this fast-paced visceral melee combat experience you’ll carve a path of destruction through the chaos of a raging war as one of three great warrior legacies: bold Knights, brutal Vikings, or mysterious Samurai. “

Here’s the official blurb:

Carve a path of destruction through the battlefield in For Honor! Enter the chaos of a raging war as a bold Knight, brutal Viking, or mysterious Samurai, three of the greatest legendary warriors. For Honor is a fast-paced, competitive experience mixing skill, strategy, and team play with visceral melee combat.

The Art of Battle, For Honor’s innovative control system, puts you in total control of your heroes, each with distinct skills and weapons, as you fight for land, glory, and honor. As a skilled warrior on a believable battleground, you annihilate all soldiers, archers, and opposing heroes who stand in your way.
For Honor will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 system, and Windows PC.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
