Well, first off, Chivalry is a Medieval game and For Honor is set thousands of years into an alternate future. Chivalry is first person while For Honor is third. Chivalry has mainly pretty standard multiplayer gamemodes while For Honor is a bit more of a unique game. It focuses a lot more on smaller-scale and very tactical combat and more uncommon gamemodes. The combat itself is handled (at least if using a gamepad) using the left stick to basically draw your strikes and blocks (only played on PS4 so, no idea how it works with K+M). For gamemodes in For Honor, there's Duel (1v1 deathmatch), Brawl (2v2 deathmatch), Elimination (4v4 Last Man Standing), and then the 2 really interesting ones, Dominion and Skirmish. Skirmish is a 4v4 match with bot minions, where each need need to build up points by killing the minions and then, when a team has enough points, kill the enemy team. Dominion is basically a twist on Conquest, where you get points for capturing the objectives and then, when you have enough points, you kill the enemy team to win.
