This is old news somewhat, but I just learned of it earlier and figured I would make a quick fyi post for fans who might be in a similar situation as me. I already own this Medieval action game since launch and thought it was great. Unfortunately, for various reasons I only played it for a few weeks and then got sidetracked with other games.... also I remember at some points experiencing network issues.
The game now apparently runs on dedicated servers, which is extremely cool to see this kind of support....I can barely remember a single time that a dev decided to change the entire online infrastructure of its game from P2P and upgrade it with dedicated servers long after launch. There are numerous other changes as well, you can check out the re-review of EuroGamer if you want, and as a bonus the game looks absolutely stunning on the X. Definitely going to try to get back into it soon, so many games to choose from these days it's nuts
quoted " For Honor remains one of my favourite games of 2017, warts and all. I've been sad to see it fade from view, as dodgy networking and pushy monetisation have driven off players enticed by the thought of a truly technical fighting game that dresses like a third-person shooter. It's fantastic, then, that Ubisoft has decided to stick with it. The addition of dedicated servers was more than I was expecting this long after launch, and the new tutorial elements are obviously evidence of a belief that the game's community has plenty of room to grow. If you've been holding off, circling the fray with your shield up, there's never been a better time to get up close and personal."
