Knights versus samurai versus vikings. That's not a bad concept for a game, and we're hopeful that For Honor, Ubisoft's melee-based battle-'em-up, will live up to expectations. The gritty title's received a new gameplay trailer at Gamescom which spotlights the three abovementioned factions - and to us, it's still looking like one of the publisher's most promising projects.

For Honor is due on PlayStation 4 in February next year, but if you're keen to get in on the action sooner, an alpha will be held on Sony's platform next month. You can sign up for it through here.
