Ubisoft has detailed their upcoming plans for their fighter: For Honor. The developer plans on supporting the game for the rest of the calendar year and leading into 2018.
For Honor’s development schedule includes:
- In order to improve the For Honor experience, Ubisoft has announced their plan to setup a dedicated servers infrastructure enhancing peer-to-peer stability and matchmaking remain priorities for the team.
- In August and November, For Honor will receive new season updates which will introduce new adjustments to the way players fight. 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
- New competitive play with a duel tournament feature and ranked 4v4 matches, along with a brand-new 4v4 PvP game mode
- A more robust training option
- Global balancing updates which 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.
These upcoming changes build on over five months of post-launch support, which includes multiple updates, enhancing player experiences and new content launches. This support will continue through the development schedule as For Honor receives updates on gameplay features, balance, performance and network stability.
“Since launch, our team has worked diligently to identify and correct issues that were not apparent with our testing and live phases,” said Roman Campos-Oriola, Creative Director of For Honor. “The For Honor roadmap is how we plan to build a stronger game through elements like dedicated servers. We are committed to our players and look to offer long-term support for the game.”
In addition to major releases, Ubi will continuously work to improve the game via regular gameplay updates which take into account community feedback.
