For Honor Characters: Hybrid Class

by Gina Lees

The For Honor three factions (Knights, Vikings and Samurais) are made up of heroes. These For Honor heroes are assigned a class, which makes them unique and define their abilities and key attributes in a battle.

The For Honor Hybrid class is for the more advanced players, who are looking at furthering their tactics and expanding on their skillset. The Hybrids are a combination of the For Honor characters, they are a higher class of warrior with myriad levels of attack.

The class system gives players the freedom to play across factions, without restrictions to losing out on benefits some factions/heroes/classes may offer. Even across the For Honor Hybrid class, each hero has distinct advantages and disadvantages. As the game progresses, players collect loot and advance their players, also making them customisable, with a freedom of choice on gender, colour scheme and weapon aesthetics.
