Now Playing: New For Honor Trailer and Stage Demo at E3 2016

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Publisher Ubisoft has for the first time shed light on the single-player component of its online-centric hack-and-slash action title For Honor.

The game's story appears to be centred around a character called Apoleon, a Svengali-like figure who appears to have stirred wars between vikings, knights, and samurais for more than a thousand years.

The gameplay video showcased a fleet of viking ships invading a samurai fortress, ploughing through its warriors and scorching the settlements.

The trailer and gameplay demo can be found in the video above.

Ubisoft showcased the campaign mode at its pre-E3 press conference at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles.

In terms of mechanics, the set-up is similar to the multiplayer component showcased at E3 2015, where players have three positions to hold their weapons for both attacking and defending.
