For Honor is a hack-and-slash title developed by Ubisoft Montreal for Windows and current-gen consoles. The game has three factions – the Knights, the Samurai, and the Vikings – with four classes each, wielding authentic weapons and possessing distinct combat abilities.
There is a story campaign as well as different multiplayer modes including PvP, which appears to be the focus of the game. In particular, the developers laud the “Art of Battle” system which gives the players finer control over their character during duels, allowing them to react to the moves of their opponent by parrying and counter-attacking.
