For Honor : A Song of War

Guns. Friends. Online. This is usually the formula for having a successful multiplayer online experience. Very few games allow us to share the glory of an up close and personal steel to steel battles without it being relegated to an RPG game add-on or side scrolling hack and slash adventure. For Honor fills this void offering a true PVP experience featuring the SAMURAI, VIKINGS, AND KNIGHTS!!!

Her motive is to keep the gears of war moving, so this game centers around this conflict amongst the warring clans. The matches online are  4V4 so naturally, I enlisted the aid of my 3 fellow brothers in arms about their personal experience after about a week or so of us in thick of war.
