With the beta behind us, I’m curious what everyone thought of the game and what character they enjoyed the most. Personally, I thought it was enjoyable, but I’m unsure about the $60 price point given there will for sure be several DLC’s. As someone who almost-never plays single-player games, For Honor needed to win me over based purely on its multiplayer. Given that at launch there will only be 6 maps (well, more than that when you consider the smaller scrimmage maps, but only 6 point control ones), I was a bit disheartened and worry I’d tire of them quickly. The fact that future maps and game modes will be freely available to all players with DLC’s containing what appears to be mostly cosmetic swag and new heroes, there’s a decent chance it’ll win me over in the long run (assuming the population holds).
At $40, I wouldn’t think twice about it, and there’s a good chance I’ll grab it up if/when it goes on sale (especially if there’s a good outpouring from Ubisoft of new maps and game modes), but I think this is going in my “maybe one day” bucket.
My favorite hero by far was The Nobushi. The first video game I ever played that allowed me to use a naginata was Bushido Blade 2, and I fucking loved it. Naturally, seeing a character in For Honor that wielded one made me quite happy. I loved the Hidden Stance dodging into unpredictable attacks, the ridiculous bleed mechanics, and the reach I had (plus, I mean, it’s glorious Nippon steel, folded over 1000 times)
###So, what did you think of it, and who did you enjoy playing the most?
