For Honor‘s multiplayer may be getting all the limelight, but Ubisoft has assured fans that its single-player campaign won’t be a halfhearted affair. In an interview with GameSpot, creative director Jason VandenBerghe said that the story will be a “full experience” and is designed to satisfy even those who wish to buy the game just for 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… 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.
Players will find that out for themselves when For Honor releases on February 14, 2017 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game’s recent closed alpha was Ubisoft’s biggest closed alpha ever, with a demand higher than any of the studio’s previous titles.
