'For Honor'

The concept may seem silly – samurai versus knights versus vikings in a historical three-way conflict – but For Honor is deadly serious. That's partly down to the intricate combat, which makes heavy use of directional blocking and encourages one-on-one duels, but it's also thanks to the community. Players of For Honor have taken to its goofy concept with gusto, creating a new game-within-the-game that has its own rules. For Honor played with honor, it's all about refusing to gang up on opponents or score environmental kills by pushing them off ledges, instead engaging in protracted deathmatches of the kind it's best at. Online games are only as good as their community lets them be and the community of For Honor is committed to making it the best nonsensical samurai versus knights versus vikings game it can be.
