Ubisoft kicked off its press conference with the announcement of an entirely new IP called For Honor. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the game is a hack n’ slash action title that takes place in the Middle Ages, featuring massive warfare between knights, vikings and even some feudal Chinese warriors for good measure.
It’s a genre the publisher has not yet truly dabbled in, so it seems as if Ubisoft is beginning to take more risks this year. For Honor offers the opportunity to experience the danger of melee combat through a new type of gameplay called The Art of Battle. You will feel the weight of the weapon in your hand, the crash as you block the attack as well as the impact as you strike and blow.
Better yet, the game will feature four player co-op, and you can view the trailer below
