Ubisoft's new medieval-themed action game, For Honor, has debuted worldwide today – bringing intense multiplayer swordplay to the Xbox One. Set in an alternate timeline where a catastrophic event plunges the world into war, the game follows three factions fighting for supremacy through brutal, bloody combat.

With some rather unique gameplay mechanics, For Honor's melee combat puts control in the hands of the player. Utilizing a system known as "The Art of Battle", players control the slant of their sword to perform attacks and blocks in real-time. This makes for unique combat experience, spanning a single-player story and extensive multiplayer mode.

Carve a path of destruction through vivid, larger-than-life battlefields in For Honor, a ground-breaking action game developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios.

Pierce the fog of war and join bold Knights, brutal Vikings, and deadly Samurais as they battle across lush, challenging battle maps. Master medieval weaponry and participate in brutal, fast-paced melee combat in an engaging story campaign and novel multiplayer modes.

We'll have a review for For Honor up shortly on Windows Central, with more guides to follow in the coming days. Are you planning to give For Honor a shot? Let us know in the comments below!
