For Honor Gameplay

For Honor is a competitive third-person melee fighting game mixing speed, strategy, and team play with visceral close range combat in multiplayer action. Experience the chaos, fury, and brutality of battle where you and your friends cut a bloody trail of carnage as brutal Vikings, deadly Knights, and cold-blooded Samurai.

The innovative Art of Battle system lets you feel the power of every strike, the strength of every impact, and the weight of the weapon in your hand. It is meant to deliver a feeling of really dueling without the sacrifice of accessibility and simplicity. The system was built using motion capture by real martial artists and professional stuntmen to give the battles realism not otherwise possible. Players can easily switch between three different stances in order to block an attack or strike an enemy. Watching the enemy closely to see which stance they switch to is key to defense and offense. This give the players a chance to plan their next move and ideally the next few as well. Players can also shift stances mid-swing and feint, in an attempt to trick opponents into shifting their guard.

There are three playable factions in For Honor and each one presents the story from their own point-of-view. Play through each one for a completely unique experience. The For Honor Story Campaign mode can be played solo or in 2 player co-op. Players will be thrust into the war raging with the other two factions. There is also a competitive multiplayer online mode that pits players against each other.

Heroes Types

Each of the three factions have their own heroes with a total of four playable heroes per faction. Each of the Heroes comes with their own set of skills, weapons, armor and fighting style and are grouped into one of four types.

They are:

  • Vanguards - These are well-balanced Heroes with good attack and defense capabilities. They also have great versatility, and make good Heroes for fresh players to start with.
  • Assassins - This Hero type is swift and lethal. They have good offensive skills in trade of limited defensive options.
  • Heavies - These Heroes have the highest resistance to damage but their attacks are slower than the other types, although still deadly. They are best used for playing on the defense.
  • Hybrids - Hybrids are a mix of the other three types, making them a little more difficult to master due to their unique use of tactics, but they are no less effective in killing for the player willing to make the effort.

For Honor Game Modes

There are currently two game modes available in For Honor. They are single player Story Campaign and multiplayer PVP . For Honor’s in-depth progression is unique to each Hero, with select elements shared across PvE and PvP gameplay modes. At the end of each multiplayer match and each campaign mission, players are awarded XP that unlocks new combat abilities and new visual customization options. They also have the chance to loot armor and weapon parts on the battlefield, with specific stats allowing each player to adapt their gear to their playstyle while ensuring fairness and balance in multiplayer.

Story Campaign

The Story Campaign takes players on a journey with their chosen faction (players can play through all three if they choose) that may pit them against others in their own faction or against rival factions. All three campaigns will introduce players to the game's main antagonist, Apollyon - the leader of the Blackstone Legion.


The multiplayer mode includes multiple types of PVP game modes. They are:

  • Dominion - a 4v4 objective based mode. Two teams fight for control of the battlefield by taking objectives and eliminating enemy players. This mode relies on communication and teamwork as well as skill.
  • Brawl - 2v2 mode in which each team of two players will need to kill the two enemy Heroes to win a round. Skill, awareness, cooperation and the capacity to use the environment to the player’s advantage are key components.
  • Duel - This 1v1 mode puts two Heroes face-to-face in a fight to the death. Skill is fundamental in Duel of course, but as in Brawl, players have the possibility to use the environment to their advantage.
  • Elimination - In this 4v4 mode, the last surviving player on the battlefield wins the round for their team.
  • Skirmish - This is a 4v4 Team Death Match like mode. Combat skills are key in this mode as players score points for their team by killing enemy Heroes.
  • Tribute - This 4v4 gamemode is not all about the killing, as your team needs to secure three banners to place into your team's shrine. But these banners can be stolen by the enemy, so stop them from placing it into their own shrine.
  • Breach - The new 4v4 gamemode that represents a siege upon a fortification. The Defenders are tasked with stopping the ram and dwindling the limited attacking force, as the Attackers push forward to break down the gates to reach the Commander.
