For Honor Age of Wolves Season Five Content Finally Adds Dedicated Servers in February

Quality of life changes and balance updates also incoming.

Ubisoft has announced details for its latest season of For Honor content. Season Five, or the Age of Wolves, adds some much requested features including the full implementation of dedicated servers, hero updates, and new training modes.

Arguably the biggest part of the Age of Wolves is the dedicated servers. Ubisoft held an Open Test in December, and after going over data and player feedback, is ready deliver a steady online performance. If all things go as planned, there should no longer be instances of resyncing after someone drops from a game.

Also in the fifth season, the Kensei, Conqueror, Highlander, Berserker, and Nobushi hero classes will receive what Ubisoft says are major gameplay and re-balancing updates. Kensei and Conqueror will have new moves and animations while Highlander, Berserk, and Nobushi will receive some big balance changes. Other heroes will get balancing updates after Season Five.

There are the usual changes to quality of life updates including XP boosts for salvage, and a new reputation level cap. All these changes and more arrive with the fifth season which launches in For Honor across all available platforms at the same time on February 15.
