#For Honor” can be praised for the unique system it offers. Heck, the feature is perhaps better than what other titles of the same genre have. However, it cannot be denied that the game’s success and popularity have gone astray.

Interestingly, #Ubisoft is not willing to raise the white flag yet. According to Polygon, the studio is set to bring massive improvements to the fighting-themed title. These improvements are believed to redeem the game once and for all.

Peer-to-peer system will soon be replaced

Yes, that is right – dedicated servers are finally coming to the hack-and-slash fighting title. The good news was revealed by the studio last Thursday, assuring the community of the upcoming improvements.

It is worth noting that the lack of online servers brought demise to the game. It caused tons of connectivity issues, particularly on PC. In fact, this has been an ongoing problem since the title launched last February. Apparently, the game utilizes the peer-to-peer system, something that does not do well when it comes to online multiplayers.

Ubisoft announced that along with the arrival of two seasons of multiplayer contents, “For Honor” would acquire dedicated servers. “We want to improve the stability of the matches on 4 vs. 5,” the game’s very own director Damien Kieken said. He also iterated that the fighting-themed title would soon have “an architecture that is more long term.” Kieken believes that by doing so, they can assure improvements in the things they want to do in the future.

Stability upgrades for now

Kieken, however, cannot provide out a specific date for the arrival of dedicated servers in “For Honor.” He confirmed, though, that it is currently under development already. They are hoping for a timeline sometime this year, but it could change depending on the hiccups along the way. Interestingly, Ubisoft is working on upgrades and improvements to the peer-to-peer system in the game. This should somehow lessen the connectivity issues players experience from time to time. Although these are not entirely what the community hopes for, the improvements should somehow do the work.

The studio further explained that before the arrival of the dedicated servers in “For Honor,” a migration process will take place. This is to allow them and the entire fandom to migrate all information from the old system to the new one. Ubisoft, however, cannot specify the extent of the migration. It might require a day or two, but this will only be revealed on the very day of the migration. Well, regardless, things are definitely looking interesting for the game.
