For Honor may have come out earlier this year but that hasn’t stopped Ubisoft Montreal from releasing updates and content on a frequent basis. Despite the game coming out to a tepid response, Ubisoft has made it clear that it’s dedicated to making the medieval multiplayer war game a success.
One way they plan on doing it is by listening to the fans and working on every facet of the game to make it a better experience. In fact, Ubisoft has released a press release about the development schedule for For Honor that they hope will make the multiplayer experience a rewarding one.
Here is what Ubisoft is working on from now until early 2018:
- 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 defense. All these changes will be tested via public test environments on PC with the first test starting today.
Ubisoft has had a knack for not giving up on their big name titles, over the years. Instead, they take the time to listen and develop their games while they’re out. Titles like The Division, Assassin’s Creed, Ghost Recon, and Steep are the first ones that come to mind. So, whether you’re into For Honor or have been waiting for it to update before you came back to playing, it’s clear that Ubisoft is dedicated to making it better.
Keep an eye out for these updates throughout the year.
