Three stories broke about Ubisoft's release of For Honor back on launch week: all of them about balance issues and bug patches. Closing off the first week of release, another update has begun making rounds in an attempt to fix some of the issues still affecting the game.
All the talk of revised combat mechanics and more balanced gameplay coming to For Honor new have a real release date, it seems. The switch-up will land August 15 - the same day as the two newly revealed champions.
With so much hype behind it, For Honor was just another Ubisoft project that couldn't hold up to its promise. Server issues plagued the game from the start, and its twitch-heavy combat system was just too much for a predominately PvP experience.
Every big multiplayer game eventually sets into a 'meta' - a formula every player follows in each game if they're to have any hope of things go well. In Ubisoft's struggling historical fighter For Honor, this current idea is to be patient. Be patient and wait for your opponent to make the first move. Then counter it and beat them down.
Is Ubisoft set to retread the past? If For Honor player numbers are anything to go by, then yes. Yes they are. They've stooped even lower.
Having trouble fighting off the Vikings or the Samurai as of late? It's just another day in Ubisoft's 'For Honor'; but for those having some concerning trouble with NAT Types changing since the last update - you're not alone. The fix should be as simple as waiting around. You'll get Champion Status for it, too.
Despite its reported server issues, For Honor seems to be doing well enough to warrant a spot on the MLG pro circuit. But one class won't be welcome at the long-standing esport league.
Where there are games, there are hackers. It's a tried and true understanding that we'll never be without those who, for whatever reason, love to buy a game to not actually play it. And in the case of Ubisoft with For Honor, they're looking to take a stand before things get much worse.
It's barely been a month, but fans are already latching onto slivers of information potentially pertaining to two new characters set to arrive in For Honor's first leg of DLC.
Just as with any big release, you probably saw your Nvidia Experience tray icon flare up to let you know of a new driver update yesterday. Given the Valentine's Day release schedule, you can likely imagine what it was for - but there's a bigger picture to be had here.
