For Honor closed beta cutting into the end of January

Our Alec had a lark when he romped around stabbing knights and samurai as a viking (a viqueen?) in Ubisoft’s sword ’em up For Honor [official site] and soon more of us will get a go. Ahead of For Honor’s launch on February 14th, Ubi have announced a closed beta test will run from January 26th to the 29th – and you can sign up for a chance to get in. Murders!

The PC games of 2017 mega-preview

As Old Father Time grabs his sickle and prepares to take ailing 2016 around the back of the barn for a big sleep, we’re looking to the future. The mewling pup that goes by the name 2017 will come into the world soon and we must prepare ourselves for its arrival. Here at RPS, our preparations come in the form of this enormous preview feature, which contains details on more than a hundred of the exciting games that are coming our way over the next twelve months. 2016 was a good one – in the world of games at least – but, ever the optimists, we’re hoping next year will be even better.

For Honor story trailer justifies vikings, samurai, knights

I like Ubisoft’s obsessive need to cram story into everything, not because their stories are good, but because their stories are required to justify some pretty odd concepts. For Honor [official site] pits vikings against samurai against knights in a game primarily designed for multiplayer melee, but of course there’s a singleplayer and co-operative story mode which tells the story of how these various blade-fanciers came to fight one another. There’s a trailer below. Read the rest of this entry »

Ubi’s For Honor Out Valentine’s Day, Gets Pair Of Trailers

If there’s one thing I really don’t like about E3, it’s the expo’s ability to make me feel old. “There’s no way that was announced a whole entire year ago,” is a phrase I’ve become accustomed to saying, and Ubisoft Montreal’s upcoming hack-n-slash murderfest For Honor [official site] is the latest game to make me do so. Why? Well it’s now got a release date and two new trailers 12 months on since its reveal. The first is a typically made-for-E3 story cinematic, and the second a more gameplay-y look at its single-player campaign with Vikings and samurai scrapping.

Ubisoft To Launch “New AAA IP” Before March 2017

It was Ubisoft’s turn yesterday to report to their investors, and they laid out their release plans between now and March 2017. Those plans include the arrival of four games we know about – Watch_Dogs 2, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, For Honor – and, perhaps more excitingly, one we do not. That new game won’t be a sequel but a “new AAA IP”.

Absurdo-Swordfighting Game For Honor Has Solo Play

I didn’t actually know Ubisoft were doing a sword-fighting game – I missed it in all the E3 noise. Seems a little bit niche for them in a way, but then again after making 98 different Assassin’s Creeds they’ve probably got the world’s largest archive of clashing steel sound effects, so For Honor [official site] makes a lot of sense.
