For Honor requires an always-on Internet connection, Ubisoft has confirmed – even in single-player mode.

“We can confirm that For Honor is an always online experience. Some elements of progression, which is hosted online, are shared across story and multiplayer modes,” an Ubisoft spokesperson instructed PCGamesN.

“Players will need to be connected to the Internet at all times to play For Honor.”

This seems to be a brand new factor, as the sport’s Steam and Uplay pages each beforehand marketed an “offline campaign”. These references have been up to date because the information broke.

For Honor launches in February for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It’s at present in closed testing and Ubisoft’s being fairly tight-lipped about it.

The always-on marketing campaign is a little bit of a disgrace for these with much less sturdy Internet connections, however For Honor was first revealed as a multiplayer title, so with luck there gained’t be an excessive amount of disappointment.
