Out today on PlayStation 4, For Honor promises a suite of medieval multiplayer modes, but despite its clear focus on competitive play, we're more often asked about its single player campaign. While we don't have a review for you lot yet, we can at least tell you that said campaign lasts around 5-6 hours on normal difficulty.

The single player offering is spread across three chapters, each one focusing on a specific band of warriors, be it the knights, the vikings, or the samurai. There's an overarching plot and a few voiced characters scattered throughout, while gameplay is split between set missions and boss fights. There's a levelling mechanic in place too, which could provide some replayability if you're keen on playing through stages that you've already completed.

Again, multiplayer is definitely the focus here, but at least the campaign isn't just the throwaway tutorial that many thought it may be. Still, clocking in at around six hours, it alone might not be worth the price of admission. It's also worth mentioning that, as far as we're aware, you have to be connected to Ubisoft's servers in order to play it.
