Meet the Lawbringer, Nobushi and Valkyrie classes in For Honor

2 min read


Chances are, if you’ve ever had a passionate discussion of which feudal civilisation had the best warriors, you were probably drunk and half an hour later you were busy explaining to the nurse at your local ER just how you managed to get a wooden sword wedged into a bucket helmet that had had plastic slits cut out of it so that you could see through it.

What, just me? Alternatively, there was Deadliest Warrior, a TV show which was as stupidly skewed with its results as a Zimbabwean election. But it’s still a legitimate question. Who had the deadliest warriors? I’m still waiting for Eli Roth to direct a remake of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure to get to the bottom of that, but at least For Honor should hopefully settle the debate when it launches next month and throws Vikings, Knights and Samurais at the player in a brouhaha of note.

It’s got a ton of classes so far split over three factions, with today’s latest trio of trailers from IGN bumping up the class attendance to 12. Check ‘em out below:

If you can’t watch the videos above, fear not! It’s just a quick detailer of the classes who’ll be wielding a more versatile assortment of weapons in battle. The Lawbringer gets a polearm, the Nobushi uses a naginata spear and the Valkyrie takes to the battlefield with a spear and shield. The Lawbringer is obviously the heavier of the three with the massive amounts of armour bolted onto him, the Nobushi values speed over raw power and the Valkyrie sits somewhere in the middle of the opposing factions.

Cripes, For Honor is starting to sound like the Highlander game that I’ve been waiting ages for already. It’s out on Valentines Day, because nothing says romance better than having your significant other introduce your digital skull to the sharp end of an axe. Alternatively, you can jump into a closed beta near the end of January.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Admiral Chief

    I’m really intrigued by this game, provided the MP is not an issue for us Saffas

    • Guild

      Hoping to try out the beta and see if the MP holds up. If it’s good I’ll get it

      • Sageville

        We await this fact finding mission results…

        Really, I just wanna be a viking….

  • Hammersteyn

    But then the hackers, I mean, the Chinese invented gunpowder. Here’s hoping the game doesn’t turn into the hackfest like The Division, because this whole game looks like one giant dark zone.

    • MonsterCheddar

      Master race problems.

      • Hammersteyn


  • MonsterCheddar

    I’m soooo getting this. Looks Brilliant.

  • Unavengedavo

    I would totally get this for me and my SO, but she’ll probably just end up team killing me just for the fun of it O_o

  • Captain JJ

    How many classes will there be for for honorr? Four. For as much as for honor intrigues me, I will probably only look at for honor for the single player aspect of the game.

    • Admiral Chief


      I too would love to delve into the SP portion

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    But they left out the best part! When the Lawbringer hits two guys at once it goes…
