For Honor is a unique multiplayer experience, offering a formula for dramatic high-stakes melee combat the likes of which we've never experienced in a video game. I had great fun during the closed alpha test, and spent several hours playing online with strangers, sliding and dicing. For Honor is definitely being sold as a novel and exciting multiplayer experience, but Ubisoft wants to assure players who aren't interested in playing online that they'll have plenty to look forward to as well.
Creative director Jason VandenBerghe, in an interview with Gamespot, said that the story campaign will be comprehensive and engaging. "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." He thinks that the adventure is well worth the purchase price. "We build the campaign so that if you bought the game for just that, that you would be satisfied even if you never went online and played multiplayer." That's good news for you lone wolves out there. We'll keep you updated as Ubisoft shares more about For Honor in the coming months.
