Ubisoft doesn't want you to get the impression For Honor's single-player campaign will be throwaway content.
Ubisoft has reiterated that For Honor, the company's melee-focused action game, will feature a single-player campaign. In fact, the publisher is confident you can get a good experience just by playing that mode.
The recent closed alpha and the chatter around the game certainly could given people the impression this is a multiplayer-only game, similar to Rainbow Six Siege.
"It's a full story campaign, a cinematic adventure where you will play as the knights first as the Warden, then you play as the Raider, then you play as the Orochi," creative director Jason VandenBerghe told Gamespot.
"You'll play all through three different regions; the knights' homeland, the viking homeland, and the samurai homeland. You'll go on this great adventure.
"We built the campaign so that if you bought the game just for that, that you would be satisfied even if you never went online and played multiplayer. It's intended to be a full experience."
A warlord named Apollyon is one of the key characters in the campaign, a "pro-war" character. As you may have gathered from the E3 trailer, the story features a fictional conflict between the three different factions.

For Honor is out February 14 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
