Ubisoft’s upcoming hack and slash game For Honor is just a few months away from launch, and now we have learned some new information about the title. For Honor will be an always online experience and will require a consistent internet connection, even for single player.
This information comes courtesy of a thread on an official Ubisoft forum, where a community representative confirmed the rumor. Apparently, the reason for this is that progression in the game is shared across both the single player and the multiplayer, so a connection is necessary to ensure that it happens.
Here’s what the community representative, UbiJurassic, said:
“We can confirm that For Honor is an always online experience. Some elements of progression, which is hosted online, are shared across story and multiplayer modes. Players will need to be connected to the Internet at all times to play For Honor.”
Since this post, Gamespot has reached out to Ubisoft to confirm that this information is indeed true.
Set during the Middle Ages, For Honor allows players to play as three different factions, The Legion (Knights), The Chosen (Samurai), and The Warborn (Vikings). Each of these factions are then split up into 4 different class types, namely Vanguards, Assassins, Heavies, and Hybrids. You can learn more about these factions and the role of each class here.
For Honor is slated for release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on 14th February 2017.
