"Players will balletically cut through waves of AI grunts and feel like a super-charged Jon Snow in the process," editor Rob Crossley wrote. "It's here, in this wonderful moment where everything becomes so easy if only for a brief second, that you'll lock eyes with someone amid the crowd."

For Honor launches in 2016, though a specific release date has not been announced.
