For Honor Gets E3 2016 Cinematic Teaser Trailer

Why are the Vikings coming?


Ubisoft's been tight-lipped about For Honor, its upcoming melee-action game that it announced at E3 2015. Not much is known about it besides that it centers on sword-fighting and looks sort of reminiscent of Dynasty Warriors. But we'll be getting a lot more information about it at Ubisoft's E3 2016 press conference on Monday, and the company just released a short video to tease its E3 showing.

Check out the video below:

The trailer doesn't give a lot of concrete information, but it does suggest that the main conflict we will see will be with the Vikings. The video shows a Viking longship followed by a row of pikes embedded in the seabed. You can also see fire arrows streaking down from cliffs toward the water. Clearly someone's not happy with this Viking incursion.

Ubisoft's press conference is on Monday at 1 PM PT, and you can catch it on GameSpot.

The company has said that it is positioning this game for a "core" audience rather than for the mass market, meaning that it will be more niche than some of Ubisoft's other franchises like Assassin's Creed. In addition to the Vikings, the game will feature Knights and Samurai. Also, although Ubisoft has emphasized the game's multiplayer, it will have a single-player mode. The company has also said that a "ton of new information" about the game will be revealed at E3, so you can expect to learn a lot about it in a few days. In the meantime, you can read our preview of For Honor from E3 2015.
