Gamerant commended the graphics of "For Honor" that stood out in the trailer Ubisoft released. The trailer featured brutal melee combat that involves swords and axes striking each other with a few warriors losing their limbs in combat.
The "For Honor" trailer also has an apocalyptic feeling with scenes of demolished land and survivors struggling to live. Also, it showed a battle until death among Vikings, Samurais and Knights.
