For Honor Will Have a “Full Experience” Single Player Campaign
For Honor has a single-player campaign, and it won’t be a simple tutorial.
Ubisoft revealed today that the upcoming multiplayer-focused action game, For Honor, will have a proper single-player campaign that’s designed as a “full experience.” The developer says that you’ll be able to get a good experience even if that was all you played of the game and didn’t delve into the game’s robust multiplayer.
The recent closed alpha test might have given many, including us, the impression that the upcoming game was to be a multiplayer only affair, but Ubisoft seems intent on exceeding everyone’s expectations.
Speaking to GameSpot, creative director Jason VandenBerghe described the campaign.
“It’s a full story campaign, a cinematic adventure where you will play as the knights first as the Warden, then you play as the Raider, then you play as the Orochi,” he said. “You’ll play all through three different regions; the knights’ homeland, the viking homeland, and the samurai homeland. You’ll go on this great adventure.
“We built the campaign so that if you bought the game just for that, that you would be satisfied even if you never went online and played multiplayer. It’s intended to be a full experience.”
As you may recall, the setting pits the three different factions against each other.
In the interview, the developer goes on to talk about individual hero progression, a prestige system and cosmetic unlocks that are part of the game’s core experience. It’s worth a look.
For Honor comes out next year on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
