If you’re looking forward to seeing your For Honor experience carry on through the rest of 2017 and into 2018 then you’re in luck as it looks like Ubisoft have still got big plans for For Honor. Today a number of new features have been announced.
For those who don’t know, For Honor offers an engaging campaign and some thrilling multiplayer modes, as players embody warriors of the three Great Factions – the bold Knights, the brutal Vikings and the deadly Samurai – fighting to the death on intense and believable melee battlefields. Much of the success of the game comes from ‘The Art of Battle’, the innovative combat system that puts players in total control of their warriors, allows them to utilise the unique skills and combat style of each hero to vanquish all enemies who stand in their way.
But after having released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC six months or so ago to rather decent applause – our own review is right here – Ubisoft are still looking to amend things a little. They have therefore announced that a dedicated server infrastructure will come into place, two new seasons will soon be with us, further game features will drop, a whole new training mode will help out all players, whilst game balancing updates are on the horizon.
Full details as follows:
- Dedicated Servers – The development team at Ubisoft Montreal is currently working on a dedicated server infrastructure. In conjunction to the dedicated server implementation, enhancing peer-to-peer stability and matchmaking remain priorities for the team.
- Two New Seasons – In August and November, For Honor will receive new season updates, introducing adjustments to the way players fight on the battlefield. Content from each of these seasons includes new heroes, maps, gear variations, gameplay updates and more. All season pass owners will receive early access for the new heroes released during the season. Further details will be revealed at a later date.
- New Game Features – Competitive play with a duel tournament feature and ranked 4v4 matches, as well as a brand-new 4v4 PvP game mode, will be added to For Honor in the coming months.
- New Training Mode – A more robust training option for both new and veteran players to hone their skills before heading to the battlefield.
- Global Balancing Updates – Building on the updates since launch, For Honor will receive more changes aimed at balancing heroes and game modes. Some of these changes will improve elements of the fight system to make attacking more advantageous while putting more pressure on defence. All these changes will be tested via public test environments on PC with the first test starting today.
“Since launch, our team has worked diligently to identify and correct issues that were not apparent with our testing and live phases,” said Roman Campos-Oriola, Creative Director of For Honor. “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.”
