During a recent conference, Ubisoft has claimed that all For Honor DLC maps and modes will be given free to the players. According to game director Damien Kieken, the team has made this choice because they don’t want to split the community.
“Everything concerns matchmaking, like maps and modes, will be given free to every player. We’ll also have other free content. We are a great team that will keep supporting this game after launch.”
But we we must emphasize that not every additional content will be free. Ubisoft will probably follow the same strategy used with Rainbow Six Siege, giving For Honor DLC maps and modes for free, but making people pay for additional characters.
However, the company has also confirmed that For Honor will be an always-online game, even if the community won’t be happy about it.
During a recent interview with PCGamesN, Ubisoft has explained that some features of the solo campaign require being online because they share elements of the progression system with other modes.
We can now confirm that For Honor is an always-online game. Some elements of the progression, which is hosted online, are shared across the story and multiplayer modes. Players will need to be connected to the net in every moment to play For Honor.
According to Ubisoft, For Honor received massively positive feedback during its alpha and it continues to excite players across the globe. The company, in fact, has noticed boost in the registration for the beta after the success of the closed alpha.
For Honor is an action hack and slash game by Ubisoft Montreal, releasing on February 14, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
