For Honor Is Always Online, Even For Single-Player

Ubisoft upcoming hack-and-slash title expects you to be connected at all time.

Ubisoft has revealed that For Honor, the company's upcoming semi-historic action game, will need to have an online connection at all times. An Ubisoft community representative confirmed the news in a private message on the official For Honor forums, related on NeoGAF.

Why must you forsake me, internet connection?

"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. Players will need to be connected to the Internet at all times to play For Honor," said the representative.

This raised some eyebrows, as For Honor is focused mostly on multiplayer melee combat, but does have a single-player campaign. Ubisoft confirmed the news with GameSpot. Sadly, you'll need an internet connection, even in single-player.

For Honor is scheduled for release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on February 14, 2017.
