To Honor is a hack and slash video game in development by Ubisoft Montreal and ready to be published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It was announced at the 2015 Electronic Entertainment Expo. The game features a hand-to-hand combat system described as “The Art of Battle” by developers and allows players to play the roles of historical soldiers as medieval knights, samurai, and Vikings.
To Honor is a non-fantasy hack and slash video game set in the medieval period. Players can play as a character from three different factions, namely the Legion, The Chosen and The Warborn. The three factions represent knight, samurai and Vikings, respectively. Different classes have different abilities and weapons, and customization will be available for players. For example, the gender of the characters, and armor worn by them, can be modified and customized.
Players battle against each other with melee weapons such as axes and swords. The game offers competitive multiplayer modes that can support up to eight players, which will be evenly divided into two teams. When a game begins, players will be accompanied by many AI teammates, who help the players. Points, temporary and permanent, can be won in a game. When a team wins enough points, they must remove the players from the other team. Once all players on a team are eliminated, the game ends. When players kill a number of enemies consecutively, they can level up and gain Feats, which are additional benefits. These advantages allow players to earn points and additional forces, call for a barrage of arrows or a catapult attack, or heal themselves.
