So there's a new video for For Honor on Ubi's channel and it offers a few seconds of combat with morningstar and shield. (Sorry if this has been posted, didn't find it)

The magic happens around 0:25, I suggest you watch it at 1/4 speed to see the details.

AND YET, NO VIKINGS!!!!!?

Still, it is cool to see a flail. An interesting weapon to include to say the least. I would've expected a mace before anything on a chain. Makes me wonder if the Chosen are going to get the kusarigama...

I wonder if those weapons + shield will be available to use because it was difficult to see if those were the main guys or the cannon fodder.

He looks at least a head taller than the fodder to me. Also makes me wonder why he'd be featured in the trailer (for however brief it was), and be the focus of the shots he's in if he's just a member of the mob.

Agreed!

I knew they would have a shield and flail in the game from the trailer, I really couldn't believe they'd have it in the trailer and not in the game. Thanks for sharing, I hadn't seen this one yet.. Absolutely awesome!

Huge props for the blood splatter! Excellent screenshots Willow!

The longer I watch that guy go flying, the funnier it gets

It is definitely a player character, you can see it again there, some seconds later... and misterious spark :confused:

I just checked it out, I think that's the sun glinting off the armor. Hard to tell, but that's my assessment

Those sparks are produced from the Shield and sword contact because of the guard brake that performs the character with the morning star. At least that is what makes more sense even though the sparks seems a bit missplaced.

You can check it here. repeatedly.

Nice find! Cool to see shield and one handed weapon in action.

And yeah the sparks are probably from the guard break.

Although I am a Ubisoft community rep I can genuinely say from the bottom of my heart, as a gamer, that I am SUPER EXCITED about For Honor.

Over and out.
