For Honor’s art direction sets the game apart from the fighting games that might otherwise be its peers. It’s notable not only for its Thrones-style grit, but also for the unspoken but pervasive respect for diversity expressed through its character designs. The majority of characters have options for gender and ethnicity, including all three protagonists of the story mode. For Honor’s women are athletic and, with the exception of the vikings, fully armoured. However, even in the case of the Norse, they’re not overtly sexualised. The primary antagonist of singleplayer, Apollyon, is a woman and if you opt for a female protagonist each time that you are given the choice, For Honor even passes the Bechdel test.
