For Honor is Hosting a Public Test for the Upcoming Dedicated Servers

A big fix is coming to For Honor's network connectivity issues.

Ubisoft is finally readying dedicated servers in For Honor. To help set up for the launch, Ubisoft is hosting an Open Test for the new dedicated servers this week from December 14 to December 17. It will be available to all players, regardless of whether or not they own the game.

Those who want to participate in the Open Test can pre-load the custom test client starting on December 13 at 1 am PT/4 am ET. The Open Test will let players use the full roster of character in 1v1 Duel, 4v4 Dominion, and 4v4 Tribute modes. Rewards earned from the event will be added to the player's main accounts, or carried over for new players who decide to purchase the full game afterwards.

For Honor is a competitive, online hack and slash game that lets ancient warriors from a variety of different cultures and histories, battle it out for supremacy. While the game has fostered a rather dedicated online community, the game has been regularly criticized for its connectivity problems.

Prior to the private servers if a host player quit, the game would pause as the host migrates to another player. Fans have requested private servers to help improve the stability of the game and Ubisoft is delivering.

While these dedicated servers are meant to fix the network problems in For Honor, Ubisoft is keen on having an architecture that could be used for future games as well.

The Open Test for the new servers will start on December 14 at 5 am PT/8 am ET and last until December 17 at 5 pm PT/8 pm ET.
