For Honor is Finally Getting Dedicated Servers on PS4 and Xbox One Tomorrow
After bringing them to PC last month, Ubisoft announced that dedicated servers will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of For Honor on March 6.
One of the biggest complaints leveled against Ubisoft’s multiplayer-focused title For Honor upon release was its matchmaking system. It was peer-to-peer, which is unfavorable for multiplayer games as it can result in lag and unstable connections. Last month, Ubisoft added dedicated servers to the PC version of the game. They have now announced that dedicated servers will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game tomorrow, March 6.
According to Ubisoft, this will bring several improvements to For Honor’s online experience on consoles. This is because the switch to dedicated servers means resyncs and host migrations will no longer happen during matches thus meaning the completion rate of matches will improve.
When dedicated servers roll out on consoles tomorrow, the servers will also include all of the fixes implemented since they were added on PC, so players will have an even smoother time from the start. In order for these servers to take effect, For Honor’s online features will experience a brief period of maintenance and 9am ET on March 6.
