Despite pledging the game would be playable offline, Ubisoft has confirmed that For Honor will require an internet connection to play, at all times.
The news comes from the game’s official forums, where an Ubisoft representative confirmed the following:
“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.”
Ubisoft later confirmed this officially, but didn’t elaborate further as to why players will need to be online to play. In case you missed it, check out our thorough preview for the game here.
