When it comes to video games, I much prefer those with swords than those with guns. So when Ubisoft announced a new game this week at E3 2015 that’s all about melee combat, I and many others were quite excited.
The game is called For Honor, and it brings together three of history’s greatest warriors: Samurai, Knights, and Vikings. In it, you and some friends will take on another team of players in a brutal fight. But instead of having just a few players on each side, there’s also a small army of AI soldiers on each side clashing swords around you to really make it feel like a battle.
You can read more about For Honor and see it in action below.
