This is the kind of brutal medieval action we've been missing!
Ubisoft Montreal announced their new project at E3 this week; it's called For Honor and players take to huge battlefields while siding with one of three factions: Vikings, Knights, or Samurai.
Obviously, these three sets of warriors didn't exist at the same time in human history, but this isn't about historical accuracy. As you can see in the trailers below, it's about gritty blade-and-shield combat; you move your character with the left analog stick and your weapon with the right stick. Not sure if that will work as well as I'd like but we'll see.
You can see the world premiere trailer right here, along with some multiplayer action. Looks very promising!
