For Honor gets dressed up as Assassin’s Creed for the holidays

For Honor may have bounced back from the brink, but that hasn't saved it from being subsumed into the UbiGame collective, becoming an Assassin's Creed game for the holidays. Ubisoft's clever online take on the fighting game genre is largely transformed by the For The Creed event until January 10th, now featuring armies of Assassins and Templars fighting in the Animus. The event features a…

For Honor expands into China with Marching Fire, out now

Ubisoft's For Honor once looked like a write-off, but the competitive sword-o-brawler has somehow pulled itself together. Today's expansion - Marching Fire - adds a bundle of new content to the game, a lot of it paid, but some major upgrades free for everyone. All players (regardless of version owned) will get access to a castle siege playmode and a slew of graphical improvements, but…

For Honor’s new Marching Fire expansion trailer shows off new heroes, graphical upgrades, plenty of burning

Ubisoft’s melee-dramatic, vaguely historically inspired For Honor has always been a speculative thing, mashing together unrelated factions for the fun of it. With the pending release of the Marching Fire expansion, they’re taking it one step further and asking: what if knights vs. samurai vs. Vikings, but now everything is burning? See for yourself below:

You can fight with For Honor’s Chinese warriors in an ‘open test’ next week, even if you don’t own the game

"It does not matter how slowly you go," said Confucius, "so long as you do not stop adding stuff to For Honor." It's a good thing Ubisoft have always been keen followers of eastern philosophy. Despite its problems, they refused to stop working on the Vikings v Knights v Samurai brawler. We heard at E3 that the upcoming Marching Fire expansion will add four new…

Clickuorice Allsorts: Getting mugged in For Honor

UBISOFT: Soldiers! For Honor is not a game. It is a quest for medieval prowess. You will spend hours honing your swordsmanship, weeks sharpening your wits. Only the most ferocious survive in this ahistorical spike pit of combat, a land torn asunder, soaked in flame and dread and ash. You will train for months, tempering yourself in this sharp-edged gauntlet. You will dodge, limp, parry…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

For Honor marches into Chinese history with four new warriors and a 4v4 siege mode

Brutal medieval axe grinder For Honor is getting four new Chinese warriors as part of an update called Marching Fire, Ubisoft have said at their E3 announce-a-thon. It's also getting a new 4v4 game mode about besieging castles, as well as a to-be-revealed "endless" singleplayer mode and some equally unknown two-player co-op stuff. The game's cut-down Starter Edition is free for keepsies right now too.…

For Honor’s training hub aims to turn squires into knights

When you stack it up against just about any other major multiplayer game, medieval murderfest For Honor seems a little esoteric, but Ubisoft are still sure that the game has legs as a competitive scene - it just needs to remind the players how to run. In a major free update rolling out for the game tomorrow, For Honor is expanding with a series of official…

For Honor’s Starter Edition seeks to draw in fresh blood

Not to beat around the bush, but multiplayer medieval brawlathon For Honor clearly jumped the gun with its launch last year. Only now does the game have its technical kinks worked out, along with dedicated multiplayer servers. Major improvements all told, but considered by many to be too little, too late. Ubisoft aren't a company to give up so easily, and are attempting to draw some fresh…

For Honor’s dedicated servers roll out on February 19th

We'd previously reported that among a swathe of improvements coming to Ubisoft's struggling multiplayer brawler For Honor was support for static, dedicated servers, completely replacing the public hosting system that the game currently uses. We now know exactly when this game-changing improvement will be landing, and it's not far off: You'll be able to butt heads with the Vikings, Knights & Samurai in a much…

For Honor adding dedicated servers this season

Rainbow Six Siege might be Ubisoft's rising star in the multiplayer scene, but they're not quite ready to let go of For Honor yet, despite technical troubles and dwindling player-counts. Due to start this February, the Season 5 update for the game (dramatically named 'Age Of The Wolves'), will bring a lot of tweaks and changes to the game, says Ubi, including some heavily reworked…

Ubisoft are testing For Honour dedicated servers, and you can join them even if you don’t own the game

Get ready to grab your great axe, long-sword or naginata and set some heads a-rolling, because Ubisoft are finally testing dedicated servers for their melee brawler For Honor. Everyone, including people who don't own that game, can download the test client now then start helping them with that from 1pm GMT on Thursday, when you'll be able to slash around in the usual multiplayer modes…

The troubling MS Paint executions by For Honor’s players

Three-sided brawler For Honor recently added two new heroes. So I’m back in the gladatorial pits, trying to revive my previous dishonourable form. But it’s tough. The game itself still has problems and my own rustiness only makes things harder. The veterans of the community seem happy, however. They particularly like the brutal execution animations recently added. So much so, that a troubling trend has…

For Honor reveals new murderers, maps and modes

Has medieval ménage à murder For Honor undergone that renaissance everyone keeps predicting yet? The whispering wisdoms of the internet told me it would follow in the footsteps of Rainbow Six Siege – somewhat underwhelming and skittish when released but stronger and more confident many months afterwards. But if that’s destined to happen, Rich hasn’t noticed. Maybe two new killers, a couple of fresh maps,…

For Honor starts free trial weekend

Honour is one of the daftest justifications for killing, but I suppose Ubisoft didn't want to call For Honor [official site] 'Because Video Games'. If you want to stab a load of men because video games, this weekend you're invited to have a crack at For Honor for free. You can now download and play the full game -- both campaign and competitive -- to…

For Honor season 3 introduces Highlander and Gladiator

Stop me if you've heard this one: a Gladiator and a Highlander walk into For Honor [official site] and, without a third character to catalyse a joke, simply stab each other to death. Thank you, thank you for your rapturous applause. It's the way I tell 'em. This ha-ha-hilarious joke will come to life later this month with the launch of For Honor's Season 3…

About bloody time: For Honor getting dedicated servers

You know what they say. "Better a late fix to bring back some fans to your waning multiplayer medieval fighting game that shouldn't have been built this way in the first place than never." What? That is what they say. Whatever. The vikings and samurai and knights of For Honor [official site] will finally be getting dedicated servers, says Ubisoft. It's a big deal for…

Warning: Ubisoft’s servers are wonked today

If you're planning to play a spot of For Honor tonight or perhaps a little Rainbow Six Siege, er, revise your plans. A lot of Ubisoft's online servers and services are down today for reasons unknown, disrupting games and causing trouble. Ubisoft say they're investigating and want everything shipshape but if your Monday date night involves ninja fights, you might want to formulate a backup…

For Honor season 2 launches new maps and classes

Ubisoft's staborama For Honor [official site] has kicked off its second season of competitive play with an update adding two new maps and, initially only for season pass holders, two new characters. The sneaky Shinobi and stompy Centurion will become available to other players on May 23rd, but all stabmen are invited today to murder in the new Temple Garden and Forge levels. Alongside all…
