For Honor: watch a samurai make an incredible comeback in Dominion mode

For Honor is at its best when real players go head-to-head.

For Honor has a campaign but the gameplay that has Arekkz most excited is Dominion. In this 4v4 territory control mode, teams battle AI and other players to keep their positions – but the unique mechanics mean huge comebacks are possible, as the initially disorganised team you’ll see here aptly demonstrates.

For Honor has five multiplayer modes and 12 different customisable characters you can mix and match as you please, so there’s probably going to be an interesting meta which will evolve after For Honor launches in February 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Oh, by the way – this gameplay was recorded at gamescom 2016, and the audio set up wasn’t ideal, so unfortunately you won’t hear the team chatter very well. You should probably just cue up your favourite metal track after Arekkz finishes his intro; that seems a fitting accompaniment to For Honor.
