About For Honor


A chaotic hack and slash set in a war torn medieval world. Developed by Ubisoft, For Honor creates a harsh and brutal battlefield for its characters. Telling the story of the Knights, Vikings and Samurais, For Honor is the tale of how these great warriors were shaken by a cataclysm that re-shaped their land.

Struggling in a desolate new world and in a bid for survival, they turned on each other.

Hundreds of years later, the feud is still very much alive. You will be able to play as all three factions with a diverse mix of heroes and classes.
