For Honor system requirements

Ubisoft have confirmed the For Honor system requirements and, if you’re prepared to push the settings right down, you can run on some fairly old hardware.

As a British-run website, For Honor is quite an irritating game for us. Like Fallout 4’s Far Harbor expansion or Paper Mario: Color Splash, the simple fact is, the name isn’t spelled right. For Honour. Far Harbour. Colour Splash.

Of course, you could just take President Trump’s approach and spell the word however the hell you damn well please:

Donald Trump honered

Seriously, America, this is your new President. Take a good hard look at yourselves. We thought our own omnishambles – the Brexit vote – might serve as a warning to you, like a Dickensian ghost of political disasters yet to come, but you just couldn’t let one go, could you?

Anyway, back to the welcome distraction of video games as the real world burns around us; here are the For Honer For Honor system requirements:

Minimum For Honor System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • PROCESSOR: Intel Core i3-550 | AMD Phenom II X4 955 or equivalent

  • SYSTEM RAM: 4GB
  • Resolution: [email protected]
  • Video Preset: Low
  • VSync: Off

Recommended For Honor System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • PROCESSOR: Intel Core i5-2500K | AMD FX-6350 or equivalent
  • VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX680/GTX760/GTX970/GTX1060 with 2 GB VRAM or more | AMD Radeon R9 280X/R9 380/RX470 with 2 GB VRAM or more (see supported list below)
  • SYSTEM RAM: 8GB
  • Resolution: [email protected] ~60FPS
  • Video Preset: High
  • VSync: Off

Supported Nvidia Video Cards (at time of release)

  • GeForce GTX600 series: (minimum) GeForce GTX660 or better | (recommended) GeForce GTX680 or better
  • GeForce GTX700 series: (minimum) GeForce GTX750ti or better | (recommended) GeForce GTX760 or better
  • GeForce GTX900 series: (minimum) GeForce GTX950 or better | (recommended) GeForce GTX970 or better
  • GeForce GTX10 series: (minimum) any GeForce GTX10 card | (recommended) GeForce GTX1060 or better

Supported AMD Video Cards (at time of release)

  • Radeon HD6000 series: (minimum) Radeon HD6970 or better | (recommended) none
  • Radeon HD7000 series: (minimum) Radeon HD7870 or better | (recommended) none
  • Radeon 200 series: (minimum) Radeon R9 270 or better | (recommended) Radeon R9 280X or better
  • Radeon 300/Fury X series: (minimum) Radeon R9 370 or better | (recommended) Radeon R9 380 or better
  • Radeon 400 series: (minimum) Radeon RX460 or better | (recommended) Radeon RX470 or better

Fully Supported Controllers

  • Mouse and Keyboard
  • Microsoft Xbox 360
  • Microsoft Xbox One
  • Microsoft Xbox One Elite
  • PlayStation 4 (Original/Pro)

Partially Supported Controllers (may require third-party drivers)

  • Any third-party Xbox-compatible controller
  • Logitech Chillstream
  • OUYA controller
  • Steam controller
  • PlayStation 3 controller

While it’s no surprise that the OUYA and other weird and wonderful third-party controllers aren’t on the officially supported list, it’s perhaps an indicator of how poorly Valve’s Steam Controller has taken off. No amount of funky trackpads or haptic feedback has been able to undermine just how solidly an Xbox 360/Xbox One performs.

And for the record, though this really should need stating, we got the For Honor system requirements from Ubisoft themselves. If you find that something doesn’t work please don’t yell at us about it in the comments section; we didn’t make the game or any of the components or peripherals, and yelling at us isn’t going to help. It sounds really silly to have to say that, but we see it all the time.

Perhaps you could try updating your drivers, giving it a reboot, and – if it still doesn’t work – go and yell at Ubisoft instead of us.


For Honor launches on February 14, 2017, for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
