For Honor is an upcoming hack and slash game for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with a strong focus on hand to hand combat called "The Art of Battle." It's being developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft, and is targeting release on February 14, 2017 (pure coincidence it happens to be on Valentines day, and actually incredibly ironic as there is nothing about it that screams "love is in the air").
Control the battlefield by slaughtering masses of opposing infantry, and/or duel it out in personal encounters with those in charge. There are three factions to choose from allowing you to play as Knights, Samurais, or Vikings.
For Honor is already showing signs that it has potential to be a major success. Keep reading to find out why.
