For Honor


 

After the near vertical drop in For Honor‘s player base following its launch, a slow climb back into players’ good graces has restored a notable pulse to the competitive brawler one year on.

According to a recent earnings call with Ubisoft, For Honor managed to recently hit a player base of 7.5 million, serendipitously aligning with the one-year anniversary of the game’s launch. Additionally, For Honor is now seeing approximately 1 million unique players sign in every month.

This announcement comes just before the drop of the game’s fifth season of content, set to launch tomorrow, February 15th. Titled Age of Wolves, the new season will be the first to not introduce new fighters into the game, instead focusing on a host of balancing and experience improvements, like hero adjustments and the addition of new tutorial options.

Dedicated servers are another new feature planned for the fifth season, which will remove an array of complications the game’s server infrastructure has been plagued with over the last year. The new servers will not go live with the start of the season, but Ubisoft recently dated their launch as February 19th on PC, with the console release coming “soon after.”

The same Ubisoft earnings call that announced For Honor‘s redemption included some information about what the publisher has planned for the coming fiscal year. A slide in its presentation teased that four AAA titles are dropping between April 1st, 2018 and March 31st, 2019. The Crew 2 and Skull & Bones presumably make up two of them, leaving gamers to speculate that Watch Dogs 3 and The Division 2 are the others.

Huh, For Honor’s player base is actually growing

Don't call it a comeback, but For Honor is far from dying.
