Grab an axe. For Honor is getting dedicated servers on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this week.
Following a successful roll out on PC last month, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of For Honor will be receiving their own dedicated servers on Tuesday March 6, 2018. According to details released by Ubisoft, the transition should be completed by 2pm GMT / 6am PT tomorrow.
Dedicated servers should improve the game’s overall online stability across all of For Honor‘s PvP modes, as well as enhance matchmaking.
Ubisoft say that the transition to dedicated servers on PC resulted in re-syncs and host migrations being completely eliminated from the game, and match completion rates improved. Console players will also benefit from a host of other fixes that have already been tested on PC.
The roll out of dedicated servers coincides with Age of Wolves, the fifth season of For Honor content. Age of Wolves adds a brand new hero to the game, and begins with a three-week event that gives players the chance to earn extra awards.
Once again Ubisoft’s commitment to improving and maintaining a game long after release should be commended.
