Ubisoft’s For Honor Could Require Internet Connection At All Times – Rumor


For Honor, Ubisoft’s upcoming action hack and slash title might very well require an internet connection at all times.

At least, that’s what the game’s box art suggests as spotted by Neogaf user Rymuth yesterday. While For Honor will have a very clear focus on multiplayer, Ubisoft confirmed that the game will also sport a full single-player mode.

“One of the big questions we receive in feedback is about the solo campaign,” game producer Cardin said back in January of this year. “We said that we will have a solo campaign, and I can promise you that we will have a solo campaign. It’s one of the key subjects we are working on, on the floor. I can’t wait to show stuff to you guys, and we’ll do it as early as possible, like we did with the multiplayer.”

For Honor’s creative director recently added that players would be satisfied with the game’s story mode even if they never went online and played the game’s multiplayer mode.

"It's a full story campaign, a cinematic adventure where you will play as the knights first as the Warden, then you play as the Raider, then you play as the Orochi... You'll play all through three different regions; the knights' homeland, the Viking homeland, and the samurai homeland. You'll go on this great adventure... We built the campaign so that if you bought the game just for that, that you would be satisfied even if you never went online and played multiplayer. It's intended to be a full experience."

While the box art now hints at an active internet connection for the game’s campaign mode as well, there’s also the possibility that the connection is only required for the game’s multiplayer portion – after all, For Honor remains heavily focused on multiplayer.

For Honor releases on February 14 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
