For Honor Requires Constant Internet Connection

Blame “elements of progression” common to single and multiplayer.

Posted By | On 13th, Dec. 2016 Under News


Ubisoft’s For Honor will be asking more than just your time and patience. The third person slasher will also require a constant internet connection to play, even for its single-player story.

According to a community representative on the official forums, “We can confirm that For Honor is an always online experience. Some elements of progression, which is hosted online, are shared across story and multiplayer modes. Players will need to be connected to the internet at all times to play For Honor.”

While the reasoning seems sound, it’s not exactly going to light up many a player’s mood, especially since Ubisoft has tried the constant internet connectivity before DRM purposes and it didn’t work out.

For Honor is out on February 14th 2017 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. What are your thoughts on it requiring a constant internet connection? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more updates on the matter.

    Yep. More of that stupid Xbox “always online” type bullshite mentality here. I’m almost sure that there are some similiar things about Xbox Scorpio that Uncle Phil isnt mentioning just yet. It was also a very smart move for Square Enix to add an offline mode to Hitman. Ubisoft can bite my azz.

    I would like to think that anybody who is into gaming has an internet connection nowadays. If you are not online you can’t update games, download games or play online with friends. This year’s game of the year is Overwatch which is an online only multipayer game. It isn’t such a big deal unless you don’t have internet, in which case I think you should find a different hobby.

      That’s silly. That’s like saying a story driven single player game like the Last Guardian should have a constant internet connection.

      I’m not saying it ‘should’ I’m saying it’s not the end of the world if it ‘has’.
      It is one single player game out of how many games this generation?
      If you don’t like it vote with your wallet. If sales are crap they might think twice about doing it again.

      Hasn’t stopped them before.

      Well let’s be honest, this is something that the software companies want to push to help prevent piracy.

    • Jack Boliver

      That’s the thing though, it doesn’t work. It has been shown to be easily passable by hackers and just gives a reason for people to pirate a cracked version of the game.

    • quantum

      Well I don’t know what the answer is to the problem. Maybe they think it may put some people off and soften the piracy blow a little. I think that most people don’t mind paying full if the game is actually worth it.
