For Honor made an appearance during Ubisoft’s Electronic Entertainment Expo lead-in event today in Los Angeles.

Last year, For Honor’s demo at Ubisoft’s E3 focused on multiplayer. This year, Ubisoft showed off the campaign. It focuses on third-person hand-to-hand combat inspired by medieval, Japanese, and Norse cultures. It will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The demo showed an axe-wielding warrior partaking in a siege of a Japanese fortress. Combat revolved around deflecting and blocking enemy attacks. The whole thing was narrated in-game as if it was a story of a past battle. It ended with a battle with a samurai, who lost when an axe split his, well, sensitive parts.
