A number of changes were announced by Ubisoft today and coming to For Honor in the near future. One of those is the most requested feature since launch in dedicated servers. No time frame was announced, but Ubisoft will still be updating the current P2P connections in the mean time. This is good news as it shows that the developer hasn’t forgotten about the current player base.
One of the main features is a newly announced, 4v4 PvP game mode. No details were provided on the exact setup of the mode unfortunately. Ranked 4v4 matches will also be coming, which is something the more competitive For Honor players have been clamoring for. Those looking for new content do not have to wait long, as two additional seasons were announced. The first one begins in August, with the followup in November. Each season will include new heroes, maps, gear and gameplay changes. Season pass holders will benefit the most and receive early access to the two new heroes in each season (four total), but the types of heroes will not be announced until a later time.
A newly updated training mode is also on the way, which is designed to benefit both new and veteran players. It will contain various levels of difficulty and options, ensuring even seasoned players continue to better their preparedness.
Creative Director Roman Campos-Oriola was excited about the additions and commented by saying:
“Since launch, our team has worked diligently to identify and correct issues that were not apparent with our testing and live phases. The For Honor roadmap is how we plan to build a stronger game through elements like dedicated servers. We are committed to our players and look to offer long-term support for the game.”
Routing balance and patch fixes will also be continually rolled out during the coming months as well. For Honor is available on Xbox One now both digitally and physically.
