I næste måned åbnes der adgang for For Honor's femte sæson, og udover nye belønninger så har Ubisoft afsløret at vi også kan forvente at se spillets dedikerede servere samme tid.
De dedikerede servere bør dog ikke forventes at være til stede i starten af sæsonen, men Ubisoft forsikre spillerne, at de hurtigst muligt vil blive aktiveret. Udover de omdiskuterede servere er der også fundet plads til balancering af de forskellige helte.
Opdateringen ændre således følgende:
Implementation of Dedicated Servers
Following a successful Open Test in December which allowed the production team to gather players' feedback and data, the dedicated server infrastructure will be implemented in For Honor during Season Five. This implementation will remove the resyncing, session migrations and NAT requirements that players currently have and deliver stable connectivity on all platforms. The exact timing of the implementation will be communicated at a later date.
Major Hero Updates
Five Heroes - Kensei, Conqueror, Highlander, Berserker and Nobushi - will receive major gameplay updates in order to re-balance the available roster. The Kensei and Conqueror will both receive new move sets, animations and more to their kit, while the Highlander, the Berserker and the Nobushi, will also receive meaningful balancing updates. Following Season Five, more heroes will receive similar updates as the development team continues to prioritise game balancing.
New Training Features
After the launch of Season Five, For Honor will introduce three new training modes designed to change the way players hone their skills. Newcomers will be able to learn the basics of the game as well as more advanced techniques in the Apprentice Trials and the Warriors Trials modes. Finally, The Arena mode will allow advanced players to practice against specific heroes and moves that will prepare them for any potential fighting combinations.
Quality of Life Updates
Season Five will also bring several quality of life updates including a new item that will boost XP in exchange for salvage, the shift of 4v4 Ranked Mode from Dominion to Tribute, a new reputation level cap, new gear progression and more.
Den femte sæson i For Honor, kaldet Age of Wolves, starter den 15. februar.
