Today, Ubisoft showcased 3 warriors including a new character for its upcoming action game, For Honor, launching February 14th, 2017 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
With a January 2017 Closed Beta just announced for consoles and PC, the developer shared new information on 2 of its already revealed warriors Shugoki and Warlord:
Shugoki: Once the guardians of the Samurai, they have become as family. Massive and fierce, their weapon of choice is the kanabo, a huge stick that only they can wield efficiently. The Shugoki might not have the same agility as the other Samurai, but their rock-like resistance and demon-like strength make them an unavoidable force on the battlefield.
Warlord: Warlord is a name from an ancient Viking tradition, a name that is earned by only the true leaders in combat, those who are ready to spend their whole life servicing all who need it. Warlords’ shields are as versatile as they are strong and their sword, while simple in design, is sharp and deadly.
We also learn of a new warrior in Peacekeeper:
Peacekeeper: Selected from the desperate, the humbled or the devoted, they are sworn to secrecy by unbreakable oaths. Quick and lethal, they fight with a short sword in one hand and a dagger in the other. Peacekeepers are the deadliest duelists of all Assassins, capable of winning a fight before their enemy even knows they are here.
For Honor will feature a cast of 12 unique heroes across the three Factions when the game releases February 14th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
