For those playing For Honor on PC, there’s a small patch available today that fixes a few issues. The patch was released at 8am EST today (Feb 2!), so chances are that you already have the latest version of the game.
To ensure fair gameplay, Ubisoft employs the Easy AntiCheat system within the game’s multiplayer mode. However, some players were accidentally blocked from entering an online match in For Honordue to a fault in the system, but it seems that the issue was resolved with this patch. Those using the Steam controller will also benefit from the patch because of a fix that initially kicked players from a match due to inactivity from the controller.
The patch also includes fixes for issues during the game’s startup and shutdown sequences. Also, the game will now tell you at the beginning if your Intel GPU driver doesn’t meet the game’s minimum requirements. You can take a look at the full list of patch fixes below.
