Campaign


The bloodthirsty warlord, Apollyon, believes the people of the Knights, Vikings, and Samurai to have grown weak and wants to create an age of all-out war through manipulation of each faction, to this end the perspectives of characters within each faction are shown as events are shaped, battles are waged, and agendas are created as Apollyon works to ensure continuous sparks of conflict between the the Legion, the Warborn, and the Chosen.


I was watching this today on Twitch. Seems like a fun game. Does anyone plan to get this soon?

It's one of the few games I'm looking forward to this year. There's someone I game with from time to time who was lucky enough to get into the alpha and the earlier closed beta, and he enjoyed what he played.

There's an upcoming closed beta for which you can register and have a chance of being selected for it. I'm hoping I get to take part in it so that I can see for myself if I enjoy or not before the game comes out (an open beta would be even better in that regards).

In the end, I'll most likely buy it either at launch or very near it since I'll be getting it for the multiplayer.

Totally getting it. I was an avid Dark Souls fan, especially in PvP. A lot of streamers showcased the game during its alpha and got me hyped for it.

Though Ubisoft doesn't have a good track record for preventing cheating on PC.
For example, in The Division, weapon stats where client side (I don't know if they eventually patched that out), so people just modified their save file had weapons and armor with impossible stats making them impossible to kill and one shoting everyone.

And, from what my friend who got into the beta told me, at the end of each match, you get random pieces of equipment that you can equip to boost your stats. If those are client side, you're looking at the same problem as the Division.

It looks okay but just doesn't really look like something I want to play. I do, however, look forward to seeing some streams of it as it seems like it should be fun in that context.

It turns out there will be an open beta from February 9 to February 12.
I'm glad I'll be able to try it before making my final purchasing decision.

Just bought a third GTX 1080 to put into my PC (three-way SLI) - got a free copy of For Honor with it. Can't argue with that.

Is the combat really some button mashing three buttons or is that simply the incompetence of every reviewer I've seen?

Microsoft tried and failed


now U BI SOFT is going at it again

remember Diablo III always online requirement and their server problem? people who got their new game on day 1 but couldn't play it? or Sim city 2013?

Top 5 - Worst video game launches
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLUdqt8lq2c

there are plenty of other examples

these greedy publishers never learn

i avoid games with always online requirement

i sure hope people will sue these companies (class action lawsuit) when they bought the game and they can't play the dang thing because the server is down .. even for offline mode/campaign -- it's pretty much paying full price for a broken product/false advertisement

Welp after what I've seen and heard about the recent For Honor tournament this weekend, I'm pretty sure I'll pass on this game until they patch up the bugs.
