For Honor

Many e-sports game has emerged in recent years and now every time a new game launches there is a question of e-sports. For Honor is the upcoming title from Ubisoft that will introduce skill based multiplayer that will test gamers around the world.

Will For Honor be an e-sports title? Game director Roman Campos Oriola has an answer to that. Speaking with WeWriteThings, Oriola discussed the multiplayer for the upcoming game and shared his thoughts about gamers looking it as an e-sports game.

It is a skill-based game. We want your skill to really matter and be important in the gameplay. We want it to be fair. If you lose, you know what you did to lose. If you win, you know what you did to win. We want that tactical and competitive experience.

My personal opinion, I don’t believe that as a game developer we get the chance to say ‘yeah, you know what? We’re building an eSport.’ Maybe? Maybe not? (laughs). Again for me, it is something that needs to come from the community to actually be authentic and actually drive a real response.

While the game might be or might not be an e-sports title, we will just have to wait and see, but the gaming community is not so much happy over the fact that it will be an always online title. According to Ubisoft, “For Honor is an always-online experience. Some elements of progression, which is hosted online, are shared across the story and multiplayer modes”.

For Honor is an action hack and slash game in-development at Ubisoft Montreal, and the game is scheduled to launch on February 14, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
