Channel your inner Samurai in For Honor

For honor

The guys usually like to laugh that I’m just an Ubisoft fan girl. And while I would kill for another Beyond Good and Evil, and I’m keen for Assassin’s Creed and the Division, I’m not universally won over by all their titles. For Honor still hasn’t totally convinced me, but I suppose that is the nature of new IP. New trailers and info might just start to pique my interest, though.

When Sandy went hands on with the game at E3, he proceeded to rave to me for far too many hours about how great it was. You can read his written raving over here. I’m just not sure that a multiplayer melee will do it for me, but this new video showing off the Oni lets you play as a Samurai.

I always love a dual wielder, and with key abilities like Kunai, Poisoned Blade and Arrow Storm, I know this will be the character for me. If I actually play the game, of course. Still, apparently it’s all about teamwork and interesting melee action while surrounded by the chaos of battle. It could be a lot of fun. I suppose I’ll keep an eye out and see how the game develops. Just know that if I get a chance to play it at rAge against any of you, I call all the dibs on the Oni.

Would you consider playing a melee multiplayer game, or does multiplayer only exist for you if it has guns or cars playing football?

    Looking forward to this… I would still be playing Chivalry: Medieval Warfare if we had enough local players :/

    Having said that, I would still be playing Quake Wars if we had enough local players :'(

    That looks really cool. Would like to see more of what the SP is about though – MP isn’t my thing.

    Wonder if this will turn into another Evolve?

      Probably you will need a set teams of 3 but I think it doesnt need as much as organisation as Evolve it’s pretty much like your COD multiplayer just with swords!

    I’m willing to suck it up and deal with uplay for the single player stuff like AC, farcry and Tom Clancy but the thought of trying to play a multiplayer game on it gives me a severe case of the “nope”s.

    Pity, this looks pretty cool

    this looks super legit, but its super gimmicky.

    a whole new way of controlling swords? the novelty will probably wear off quickly. the gameplay ive seen sofar makes me doubt how reactive and tactical players will actually be.

    Heh, this is cool – but man it’s going to upset a very particular fanbase when the Samurai weaponry isn’t as amazing as they love to think it is, especially when the game’s likely going to make it more powerful than it should be against plated armour ;P

    Regardless, I’m eager to give this game a try.
