One of Ubisoft's most interesting new games would have to be 'For Honor', with the company showcasing the first Hero in the Chosen faction, a Samurai named Oni.

Oni is described as a skilled duelist with quick reflexes and skills to kill his enemies, where he is donned in leather and wood armor and uses a huge razor-sharp Japanese katana to slice up his foes. Oni has special abilities, where he can poison his blade, throwing a kunai, and the Arrow Storm. The footage above is from a pre-alpha version of the game.

For Honor's Creative Director, Jason Vandenberghe, explains: "Our vision with Sanctuary is to create a game that ignites the same emotions that a warrior would feel on a real battlefield. The tension of face-to-face encounters with deadly enemies, the adrenaline of charging alongside your army against the opposition, the danger of a chaotic battle when you don't know where the next strike will come from. It's a game that celebrates the art of sword-fighting and the legacy of the legendary warriors from those great legacies, the knights, the Vikings and the samurai that we brought together in one single experience".
