For Honor was originally billed as an out-and-out multiplayer title, with players battling through hordes of lesser foes in order to enter tense duels with other skilled warriors. It wasn't too long, however, until developer Ubisoft Montreal introduced us to the game's single player offering. Boasting a "full story campaign", those who don't want to jump online to get their fix of medieval combat will be satisfied with the title's single player content. That's according to creative director Jason VandenBerghe in an interview with GameSpot - and yes, VandenBerghe is that super passionate bearded guy from Ubisoft's E3 press conferences.
"It's a full story campaign, a cinematic adventure where you will play as the knights first as the Warden, then you play as the Raider, then you play as the Orochi," VandenBerghe explains. He continues: "You'll play all through three different regions; the knights' homeland, the viking homeland, and the samurai homeland. You'll go on this great adventure." Sounds reasonably comprehensive to us.
"We built the campaign so that if you bought the game just for that, that you would be satisfied even if you never went online and played multiplayer. It's intended to be a full experience," the creative director concludes. Hopefully this turns out to be the case when the game launches in February 2017.
