The epic struggle between Knights, Vikings and Samurai has been going on since February, when Ubisoft’s hack and slash offering For Honor first launched. Things started going downhill when the game amassed a whopping 4,000 negative reviews on Steam, with players citing unstable connections and excessive grind as major concerns.
But Ubisoft took the complaints in its stride, releasing periodic updates to smooth over connection issues, introduce quit penalties for fairer matches, and bundling in dedicated servers to make 4v4 matches run faithfully.
If you’ve been meaning to try out For Honor, now’s a good time as any (Ubi-mad not to give it a go). The game is hosting a free weekend currently and running for 33% off.
‘Step into the visceral world of For Honor, and fight for the honorable Knights, the deadly Samurai and the ferocious Vikings. With a memorable Story Mode playable in Single Player & Co-Op, plus innovative multiplayer modes including 1v1 Duel, 2v2 Brawl, 4v4 Dominion and more, you’ll find out why millions of players are getting in the game.
