For Honor’s three factions of Viking, Knight and Samurai are not going to have much narrative depth to them by default, so the gameplay has to be tight. Everything we’ve seen of For Honor points towards an interesting mix of light, cathartic hack and slash through hordes of enemies, interspersed with tense, thoughtful sword battles against online opponents. Mastering its stance-based combat on the right analogue stick, mimicking and parrying attacks, launching your own and taking advantage of your class’ unique abilities, are likely to take time. Not something that our COD- addled minds will quickly adapt to, but we’re hopeful we can get there.
