Three new trailers have become available for the highly anticipated hack-and-slash PvP game, For Honor. Ubisoft has been working hard to get people interested in the new IP and have unleashed three new trailers for three of the sub-classes for the Samurai, Vikings and Knights.
The first trailer is a vignette of the Orochi, featuring a medium armored warrior with grace, balance and power at his disposal using his katana. Unlike the last trailer that featured the Kensei and their elongated nodachi, the Orochi values swiftness over strength. You can see him in action with the trailer below.
The Orochi looks slick, there’s no doubt about it. I love the HUD-less gameplay as well. I wonder if there will be an option to play the game that way in the full version? It looks so clean and cinematic that way.
The next trailer focuses on the Berserker. And with a name like the Berserker, we already know it’s a sub-class that belongs to the indomitable Vikings.
The Berserker wields twin axes, using them both offensively and defensively to take down foes. Wild and brave, the Berserker is a class that seems suited for those who want to gnash their teeth and cut down their enemies with the speed and ferocity of a wild boar.
The last of the new For Honor trailers that Ubisoft let loose focuses on the Knight sub-class, the Conqueror.
I haven’t been too impressed with the Knights. They look so boring and passe. It’s hard to get excited seeing them fight when they come across as such louses.
However… all of that changes with the Conqueror… a mace-wielding, shield-bearing warrior.
The Conqueror swings his mace with a purpose, and beheads, bludgeons, batters and crushes his foes with the kind of steel resolve that makes you wonder who could best him on the battlefield? It’s probably the first time the Knights have looked interesting to me, and you can check out the trailer below to see why.
That’s all good stuff. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing more of each class leading up toward the release of the game.
For Honor‘s alpha test gets underway starting this weekend on September 15th. The game is due for release next February in 2017 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
