Shores Unknown is an third person action-RPG following characters Morton and Ren as they investigate a mystery — a deadly fog known as “the Murk” surrounds their island, and nothing has ever passed through it. However, they learn that something is coming and they’re soon caught up in an adventure far greater than they thought possible.
Ubisoft was recently kind enough to invite GameCritics to take a look at their upcoming knights vs. vikings vs. ninjas brawler For Honor. I was able to get my hands on a few missions from the campaign, and also went a few rounds in the multiplayer arenas. This was my first time ever playing the game, and it clearly showed as For Honor requires more than button mashing to master.
Although the game isn’t out yet (it’s currently due to release in February 2017) Gamecritics was given some “alpha” codes to get an early hands-on. A number of features were disabled and large portions of the content were not available, but this limited slice gave a very good idea of what the full title will deliver… And it’s kind of awesome.
