For Honor fires up dedicated Xbox One, PS4 servers


Ubisoft will fire up dedicated servers for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of For Honor today.

They should be fully up and running after 2pm GMT, at which point online For Honor players on console should be able to enjoy improved stability and matchmaking, along with generally better all-round performance.

Ubisoft launched dedicated servers for the PC version of For Honor on February 19, and has pronounced itself satisfied with the results, asserting that match completion rates have improved significantly.

The dedicated servers arrive in time for For Honor’s free fifth-season update, Age of Wolves, which arrived on February 15 and brought rebalancing plus new training modes to make the swordfighting game more inviting to newcomers. Now would appear to be the best time to sample its delights.
