View Full Version : Crests

08-20-2016, 09:43 PM
As I rewatched the E3 campaign and also look at the gold edition of For Honor I saw some things that weren't present in the gameplay videos from gamescom's multiplayer but are clearly hinted at.
There are 3 unique crests for the vanguard classes in the gold edition. Also, enemy classes in the E3 appear to have crests as well.
Do you think these will be unlockable or customizable for the multiplayer? What are some crests that you would like to see? Would all classes have crests or possibly different flair type aesthetics do you think?
Can we just talk about crests, yo?

Yes, most likely, it would be stupid to only have it for vanguards and only 1 each.

Crests are bests.

Seriously, though, I think it's a safe presumption that they will be part of customisation.

I'd personally like to see crests attached to certain accomplishments. I mean, something that doesn't just say "I grinded this out or I paid for this or on a long enough timeline I got this far" I'd prefer a "hell yeah I'm rocking this dope crest that makes your allies soil their pants because they already know what's coming"

I agree there should be armour pieces (not just crests) that are earned through some sort of grueling ordeal, or over time, as if it were bestowed upon you for a grand career.

The idea of telling someone's prowess at a glance is immensely appealing, and not just from the perspective of the person who has it. If you see someone decked out with fancy stuff you know they earned through one accomplishment or another, and you end up killing them, you get a little boost of confidence, and have a nice little war story to tell. :D

I presume we've all seen A Tale of Weapons? I expect that Durendal (http://forhonor.ubisoft.com/game/en-US/news/152-257131-16/a-tale-of-weapons-1-the-knights-durendal), Ulfberht (http://forhonor.ubisoft.com/game/en-US/news/152-257143-16/a-tale-of-weapons-2-the-vikings-ulfberht) and Masamune (http://forhonor.ubisoft.com/game/en-US/news/152-261506-16/a-tale-of-weapons-3-%E2%80%93-the-samurais-honjo-masamune) will make appearances in the game as rewards for exception play. Perhaps they'll be granted to the top players of a particular class? Durendal to the top Warden, Ulfberht to the top Warlord, and Masamune to the top Orochi. If so I'm sure they'll come up with special weapons for each class.

Wow, that's actually a pretty sweet idea that hadn't crossed my mind. I was taking the tale of weapons series as a just neat little trivia type deal for inspiration but I think that would be a great little tie in it they were specifically represented in the game like that .
