For Honor Singleplayer Will Be A “Full Experience”, Says Ubisoft
For Honor is a new IP from Ubisoft, which features both multiplayer and singleplayer modes. However, the multiplayer mode for the game has garnered almost all of the attention of the gamers as of late, and many are speculating that the singleplayer experience might not be good. But according to devs, For Honor Singleplayer will be a full fledged experience, that will stand on its own.
Speaking with GameSpot, creative director Jason VandenBerghe explained that For Honor singleplayer will be a cinematic experience, which will take players on a journey of three different warriors Knights, Vikings and Samurai.
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.
