Many were wondering how single player was going to work for the upcoming Ubisoft title For Honor and recently the publisher came out to explain how it will work.
Ubisoft’s upcoming action game For Honor may have garnered a lot of attention for its multiplayer gameplay as of late, but the developer has stated that the game’s single-player campaign will also be able to stand on its own as “full experience.” Speaking to GameSpot during an interview in the lead-up to EB Expo 2016, creative director Jason VandenBerghe described the single-player campaign experience players can expect in For Honor.
“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… 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.”
For Honor’s story will center on a warlord named Apollyon, a character who VandenBerghe described as “pro-war” and “interested in chaos.” The story pits the three central factions against each other in a conflict that has been waged over a long period of time.
So the title will offer a lot of single player content for those not interested in the games mulitiplayer features. That is nice to hear and hopeful we will see more of the single player in action before the games release early 2017.
