Dedicated servers coming to For Honor

‘Bout time

For Honor — Knights Ubisoft Montreal/Ubisoft
Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Dedicated servers are coming to For Honor, Ubisoft's hack-and-slash fighting game, the publisher announced on Thursday.

The lack of online servers has been blamed for the connectivity problems on PC since For Honor Launched on Feb. 14. Ubisoft on Thursday announced that two seasons of multiplayer content will be added to the game, with dedicated servers a part of that.

"We want to improve the stability of the matches on 4 vs. 5," Damien Kieken, For Honor's director, wrote on the Ubisoft blog. "And we want to have an architecture that is more long term, that could help us more in the future for the things we want to do next."

Under For Honor's current online setup, if someone quits, the game pauses while the host migrates. With dedicated servers, "You don't have session host migration anymore," Kieken said. "There is no game pausing when somebody leaves the session."

The two new seasons, scheduled for August and November. will deliver more than just dedicated server suport. A new "Duel Tournament," mode, ranked 4 vs. 4 PvP matches and a "brand new 4v4 PvP mode are all planned.

More details on the updates to come are at the Ubisoft blog.
