'For Honor' Release Date, Gameplay & Latest News: Next Ubisoft Game Can Only Be Played With Internet?
"For Honor" is schedule to launch soon, but there are rumors that the game will only be playable with internet. Previously, Ubisoft announced that "For Honor" will arrive with an offline single-player campaign, but the recent news has caused much concern among gamers with slow or limited internet connection.
New "For Honor" Box Art Hints Internet-Only Gaming
Based on "For Honor's" newly updated box art on Amazon, a disclaimer on the front cover, beside the M rating, stated that the game requires internet connection to play. However, it is more likely that "For Honor" will primarily delve on the online multiplayer aspect, although the game will still feature an offline component and a full experience, as promised before.
Creative director Jason VanBerghe previously told GameSpot that the title will be a fully story campaign. "For Honor" is a cinematic adventure where players take on the role of knights, initially as the Warden.
Later on, gamers will take on the role of the Raider and then the Orochi. "For Honor" players will go through three uniquelocations, namely the homeland of the knights, the homeland of the Vikings and the homeland of the samurai.
VanBerghe previously explained that they created the "For Honor" campaign so that players who purchased the game just for it will be satisfied even if they never went online and played multiplayer. They wanted "For Honor" to be a full experience. Ubisoft has yet to confirm the internet-only playability of the game.
"For Honor" To Focus On Online Multiplayer; Offline Solo Campaign Still Coming
WCCFTech stated that game producer Stephane Cardin also promised earlier in 2016 that "For Honor" will have a solo campaign, and that it will be one of the key subjects that they are working on. Considering how Ubisoft has consistently been stating that there will be an offline solo campaign, players should not take the "For Honor" box art too literally.
"For Honor" is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal and is set to release on Feb. 14, 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. More updates and details on the hack-and-slash title are expected soon.
