If you are considering purchasing the new For Honor game which launched yesterday, but haven’t had a chance to give it a goIn either the closed or open beta testing phases and would like to see the first 90 minutes of gameplay. You’ll be pleased to know that Ian Higton from Eurogamer has you covered.

Players can choose a character from three different factions which take the form of The Legion, The Chosen, and The Warborn. and represent knights, samurai, and Vikings.
Similar to the single-player campaign, the multiplayer modes feature perks, AI minions, and the Art of Battle system. As the competitive multiplayer modes feature a structure similar to that of shooters, the creative director of the game called For Honor a “shooter with swords”
