For Honor season 2 adding Shinobi and Centurion in May

Shinobi and Centurions will join the historical battlefields of For Honor [official site] when season 2 kicks off on May 16th, Ubisoft announced today. The Samurai faction's Shinobi is a nippy Assassin type armed with two sickles on chains (kusarigama, if you want to get technical), while the Centurion is a Vanguard/Assassin hybrid who fights for the Knights with a gladius. The update will also…

Resync: For Honor’s High Fort map returns

Ubisoft's stabfest For Honor [official site] once again has all the maps that were in it at launch, seven weeks ago. Two of 'em were pulled due to performance problems, see. River Fort returned last week alongside the patch boosting Steel rewards and now High Fort is back too. Something about those Forts in particular was causing the most desync problems. I guess the game…

For Honor update ups Steel rewards, River Fort returns

Tidying up some of the week's leftovers before we shuffle into the next... For Honor [official site] has launched an update reintroducing the River Fort map and boosting the amount Steel players earn by playing. (Steel is the virtuacash used to upgrade and customise characters.) And Ubisoft say they're going to start communicating a lot more about what's going on with the game.

En garde, away: For Honor starts banning AFK farmers

Put a progression system in a game and someone will try to game it. If it's a multiplayer game, that'll often be at the expense of other players' fun. That's how it's gone with Ubisoft's swordfest For Honor [official site], where some dastardly players have been 'AFK farming'. They rig their games to keep their character moving, to avoid being kicked for inactivity, so they…

Feature: Great combat, terrible loot

For Honor’s rough edges hide a diamond worth polishing

For Honor is everything Brendan says it is in his review - an often broken and bruising game that assaults your senses with indicators and split second decisions, as well as assaulting your sanity with frequent network issues and inexplicable matchmaking bugs. It's also my favourite game so far this year, thanks to a deliciously layered combat system that draws you in piece by piece…

Feature: For dishonor

A collection of dishonourable acts in For Honor

The murderfields of For Honor [official site] are busy - despite the god-awful networking – and it has become a place where all sorts of foul multiplayer deeds occur. It’s obvious now that Ubisoft called the game For Honor as a joke, because I have seen (and done) all kinds of dishonourable acts. Here, in handy visual form (warning: many GIFS!) are just some of…

Feature: An axe to grind with Ubisoft

Everything wrong with For Honor

The menage-a-trois of murder and mayhem that is For Honor [official site] does a lot of things very well. You can be down to your last sliver of health, limping across a bridge like a deflated balloon and you still might manage to grab a giant knight in panic and throw him off the ledge. Victory has never felt so dirty.But its matchmaking is a…

For Honor launches PC hotfix, ahead of big patch

A hotfix patch is out today to For Honor [official site] to fix a few of those nagging bugs. These include problems with Easy AntiCheat errors, full screen problems, and a cracking bug that saw Steam Controller users kicked for being AFK. A bigger update is in the works, mind. This second patch will tweak the stabfest's balance, including buffing Valkyrie and changing guardbreak counters.

For Honor review

There’s a scene in the History Channel’s Vikings where the protagonist, Ragnar Lothbruk, says he is “bloodsick” after a hard fought campaign. He’s maudlin, weary of everything. It’s as if he is coming down from a dark age combat high. Well, that’s sort of how For Honor leaves me feeling after a battle. Even if my team won, I’m frustrated and irritable at all the…

Hey, you. You with the war axe slung over all three of your jacked shoulders. How's your stabbing going? For Honor [official site] launched yesterday -- our Brendan will tell you Wot He Thinks of it after a shower, when can type without his bloody fingers sticking to keys -- but the medieval stabfest has suffered a few technical problems. While Ubisoft poke at patches,…

By releasing For Honor [official site], a game whose ONLY connection to Love Day is that it lets you stab people in their love organs (the heart and the bits)! Wow!

For Honor getting Siege-y with free post-launch content

After a decade of paid DLC dividing multiplayer communities and menacing wallets, the state of affairs is still sorry enough that I mutter "Oh thank god, they've not totally muffed it" when I see a big publisher, y'know, not totally muff it. Ubisoft today detailed DLC plans for their upcoming stabfest For Honor [official site] and -- huzzah! -- they've not totally muffed it. Similar…

Stabbo! For Honor’s multiplayer beta is go

Ubisoft's multiplayer swordfest For Honour [official site] is in the middle of a big ol' closed beta weekend, so I thought I'd stop by and check in with y'all. I'm not playing myself -- I'm not allowed near swords since a Dark Souls-inspired incident with a broom in the RPS treehouse -- so, er, how's it going? I know Alec enjoyed being a Viqueen in…
