E3 2015: Ubisoft releases a new IP called For Honor

Ever wanted to know what it would be like to be Samurai, a Knight, or a Viking? Well it looks like Ubisoft has a completely new IP, it is called For Honor and it’s bloody as hell. No, it’s not another Assassins Creed style game, in fact it’s massive warfare and you’re one of the soldiers on the grand scheme. As you try to take over locations and points on the map, each battle will help to achieve your team’s final victory.

The cool thing about this game is that you have total control over your weapon. You can parry and attack in all directions that you use your right analog stick with. Just imagine doing a duel with someone online during the chaos of battle, and you suddenly having to cover your ass as someone attempts to attack you from behind. The gameplay trailer above shows how brutal the fights are, and how each character has a different attack to help with your forces. (e.g. flaming arrows via the Samurai)

This game looks pretty damned cool, and I’m glad that Ubisoft is coming up with something completely different. A new IP like this is always refreshing to see in the giant field filled with FPS Shooters and constant repetition. I just hope this game lives up to it’s hype!
