Say what you want about Ubisoft’s idea of a press conference, but for the second year in a row For Honor, and its badass creative director Jason Vandenberghe, wowed the audience on the publisher’s E3 stage. The developer showed off 10 epic minutes of intense and action-packed gameplay, which you can view below, and revealed the game’s launch date. For Honor hits PS4, PC, and Xbox One on Valentine’s Day 2017. How apropos. Afterwards, Ubisoft also unveiled the box art, which can also be found below.
Here’s the game’s box art:
In addition to all of that Viking madness, we were also given information on the title’s single-player campaign (via DualShockers):
“Play as a Knight, Viking, or Samurai in a fast-paced and immersive experience, mixing skill with visceral, never-before-seen melee combat.
Immerse yourself in a single player tale and embody heroes of all three factions to ensure the survival of your people and foil the plans of the merciless and bloodthirsty warlord, Apollyon.
For an added adrenaline rush, the singleplayer campaign is also fully playable cooperatively. Coordination and communication with your band of warriors will be the key to owning the battlefield!”
A list of For Honor’s features have been unveiled, as well:
