Apparently at least part of E3 is to introduce a new hero or faction of heroes. Skip to the very end (or watch the whole thing hah) to see the hint.

With that setting and weapon I'm thinking Arabian warriors, and I'm hyped.

Depends how much they will be broken or underpowered when they will be out.

The hype train is on fire :cool:

Please let that be a hint for a Siege Mode

Edit: I doubt, it will be an Arabian or Muslim Hero. The saber and especially the sleeve looks more like a pirate.

I mean... the meme faction to add would be pirates.... so its probably them. Not as cool, but could still be fun.

I hope it's not again something that doesn't fit into the game at all like Centurion, Glad or a Pirate ;b
This game should really stay away from meme magic and letting a pirate jump into a thounsand minions and come out with still 80% health.

Also I don't think in a tensioned time like now with Islamophobia everywhere they are going to give an Arabian/Muslim warrior a big presentation at the E3. That might be another reason, why it is unlikely. Some stupid people might take that too serious, and Ubi won't risk that now when the game is finally running more or less stable.

If Ubi really introduced an Arabian/Muslim warrior, it would be a beautiful gesture, to add him into the knights roster, like standing together after the crusades and so on. Also in reality after the crusades there was a period of western and orientalic cooperation in science, medicine and many other aspects.

I was hoping it would be a siege mode, but by the looks of the footage at the end the weapon reminds me of something chinese, but the buildings style does look arabian. Hmm.

I found something different, the video I saw was different about the sneak peek:

I have to call BS on that unless it can be found posted by an Ubi account. Been easily enough time to change a couple seconds worth of frames.

well, I saved that video from youtube :) It popped on my youtube mainpage and I watched it instantly. there is only these 2-3 seconds difference.

It seemed, they deleted that video, and posted another a while after.

on a side note: warden armor just pure coincidence ;)

Eh, that doesn't even look like FH animation. Getting to un-helmet our heroes would be a hell of a thing but, I think it's also BS.

I agree, it does seem... fake. The entire background is unmoving. The battle has ceased. It'd not be impossible for someone crafty enough to quickly slap this together. It doesn't look anything like what they have used for the rest of the entire trailer.

Not going to convince you at all costs - but not only I saw it, and I just pasted video that someone uploaded: https://www.reddit.com/r/forhonor/comments/8n9ths/for_honor_e3_2018_teaser/

For me that would either mean more campagin - introducing another faction, or just incoming facial expressions, if not just faces for characters that have it covered like all knights.

Siege mode and new factions are something i don't wanna hold my breath on because i don't want to break down in tears when that doesn't happen and instead they introduce new customization options. I believe you can't have such a thing as too much customization in any videogame, believe me when i say that i care about it a GREAT deal but it's not what needs to be a priority at this point.

Whatever it is, they need to get the updates absolutely FLOWING if they want to save this game. And not talking about new fancy colours for your knight in a shiny armor, real updates.

Test servers would make wonders like they did for Siege if the playerbase wouldn't be so small :/

New hero: Spammadin of the Desert.

New mechanic: offensive defensive stance. All lights will be 200ms unblockable attacks and will double as heavies to guarantee executions. Any time spammadin is parried it gives him a free guardbreak.
Zone attack is 100ms, has knock back but not too far and hyperarmor.

Statement from ubisoft, "we've really learned from the community and realized the success of the game is hinged on how satisfied the 3 pros that play this game are. We found that with a little practice anybody can react to the current meta of light spam so we're doubling down so the pros don't get bored. Also to raise the stakes, Spammadin has a tier4 feat that deletes accounts! Enjoy"

The new hero in the teaser belongs to a new Arabic faction. In this case, the weapon is a scimitar and belongs to the vanguard hero of the new faction. It doesn't show it in the video because Ubisoft likes to do many "one more thing" at E3 show, but the Horadrim actually dual weilds the scimitar. The Dual weild is actually what's unique to this character.

In short, during an heavy attack start up, the hero can throw a light attack in another direction. As a result, he attacks in both directions at the same time. The heavy attack goal is to "pin" the opponent's guard (thus, he's not going into a default full block stance when he successfully blocks it) and the light attack connects on the other side (kindda like a bash attack garantees a light attack). It is the first "unparry-able" attack in the game since the light attack follow-up stagger the opponent out of the parry. It's also quite devastating if the first heavy connects because your opponent enters a stagger animation and the light attack automatically hit for a sweet Heavy + Light Combo (like Shinobi's Ghoul Rage)

On a whiff dual weild strike attempt, you can follow up with a kick. Sorry all you Orochi fan boys who wanted to have that sweet sweet kick animation the Orochi is doing in some cinematic, they gave that move to this hero using the same animation. A successfull kick can be followed by a spin attack pirouette of 2 light attacks.

His heavies are quite cancerous in ganks since he can "lock" the opponent guard into the external attack direction and your ally then gets a free top heavy easily. The only counter is to dodge his heavy, which just resets fight to neutral and doesn't give you any revenge meter ...

He's total ********, but in line with the kind of ******** we expect Ubisoft to pull everytime they release new characters. Well, I shouldn't say that. He's kind of like Centurion on release. His "combo" is quite predictible and at first, people will complain on forums ... but the truth is, in duels, he's fine. In Dominion tho, expect cancer on a whole new level.

all I want is to have a no party playlist so I can enjoy the game with a reduced chance of a death ball forming. once again played last night quite a few matches and get put against full parties that go around in a gank squad and literally when playing solo there is no way of coming back.

THIS. Ive been saying this for almost a year with absolutly no responce from the team. I would gladly wait a few extra mins to find a match if it meant avoiding pre made death squads

Well it's at least a new hero, which would be good, but if it were a new faction, an Arabic/middle east faction that would great. They have a ton of sweet looking armor and weapons, and I don't think current politics should have any influence on making an arabic faction, it's a game, it's for fun.

It just seems unlikely to me that they would be releasing so many new characters but who knows, maybe they've been working on them for a year already. I actually hope its not a pirate, just because I know his fighting style would be cancer. "Dirty fighter specialist" lol I can see his combo's now, "low blow" "throat punch" "sand in the eyes" and he would most likely be yet another assassin.... we need more non assassin classes in the game.

An Arabic/middle east faction would great. My money is on a Chinese faction. The Chinese has more variety. The vid is vague on purpose, so it could be a lot of things (please no pirate!) they have been doing a great job of releasing original characters and move sets ( no re-skinned colons). As long as they come out with a vanguard , heavy, assains and hybrid all at once (one large dlc) Iíll be happy

Might just be more heroes for the existing factions though.

Chinese warriors fit in with the Samurai about the same as Romans fit in with the Knights (they don't). But who knows; we'll find out soon.

The weapon is in no way of Japanese origin. It doesn't follow the same techniques they would use. If it's Chinese I don't know.

Well, entire new faction seem less likely than adding more heroes to existing factions. Highlander is not a viking technically, so adding chinese warrior to Samurai faction seem to be the way it goes.

Yeah, I don't mind there being Chinese warriors on the Samurai faction.

Yeah I wouldn't even mind there being all types of Asian Warriors on Samurai, or heavily armored Arabic warriors being on Knights. It's more about warrior style than historical accuracy.

Centurian works in the Knight faction in my opinion, the Gladiator doesn't really besides the fact he uses mostly metal armor.

Warriors from the Scottish Highlands were enemies of the Vikings so the only reason that works is because of their style of armor and feriocity in battle.

I think thats the way all warriors should get assigned. Historical accuracy will limit options too much.
