Ubisoft has announced the date when console players can enjoy For Honor‘s dedicated servers.
According to a post on the official Ubisoft newswire, For Honor‘s dedicated servers will go live for players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One starting tomorrow, March 6th. Exact rollout times for the server update were not specified in the post.
PC players have been rocking out on dedicated servers since February 19th, enjoying the elimination of server resynchronizations and host migrations, mitigating many of the issues that have plagued the game since release. The console launch will benefit from a lack of all the issues the team has ironed out of the system since it launched for PC.
Dedicated servers were announced as part of For Honor‘s fifth season of content, named Age of Wolves. The new season didn’t include any new fighters, as many had hoped, but it did bring with it a host of updates, like hero rebalances, new tutorial modes, and more. The season kicked off with the Apollyon’s Legacy event, which introduced tons of new gear, along with the new Test Your Metal cooperative mode.
The dedicated servers could very likely end up bringing even more players back into For Honor‘s fold, which is currently bigger than most may expect. As of last month, For Honor‘s player base hit an impressive 7.5 million players, with approximately one million of them signing on every month.
