For Honor to Get Dedicated Servers for Console Play
For Honor Xbox One players worldwide will be able to play on a dedicated server infrastructure starting tomorrow, March 6th. The transition will be completed following maintenance starting at 2:00PM UK TIME.
The introduction of dedicated servers to For Honor is said to improve matchmaking and overall online stability to offer a better and smoother experience to For Honor players for all PvP modes. The recent implementation for PC players saw several improvements to the online experience including:
- Resyncs and host migrations during games have been entirely eliminated
- Match completion rates on PvP modes have improved overall
- Major fixes have already been implemented on the PC side following the launch to improve the experience on servers. Console players will benefit from these improvements from day one
Dedicated servers have been introduced as part of For Honor’s Fifth Season: Age of Wolves, which focuses on the core player experience and also introduces major Hero and fight updates, a 3-week special event, as well as new training modes later in the season.
