Ubisoft has confirmed that For Honor is coming to next-gen consoles. If you’re wondering what that looks like, then you’re not alone. Luckily Ubisoft has done everyone a solid, and outlined exactly what’s going to happen when it comes to moving For Honor across to your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X and S. You’ll be glad to hear that it’s nowhere near as complicated, or expensive, as some other publishers are making the whole situation.
The good news is that you get a free upgrade to the relevant next-gen console. No cost. So if you have an Xbox One, you’ll get the game on Xbox Series S and X. The same goes for PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5. This is an incredibly good deal, and one that I think more publishers should be offering. Simply the fact that you don’t have to purchase an incredibly expensive version of the game is a massive boon to anyone who wants to play For Honor.
Moving on from the best news, For Honor is also getting an upgrade on next-gen consoles. First off, it’s going to be running at 60 FPS. This is a silky smooth framerate, and one that will make you the envy of all other players on your platform. This won’t start until the beginning of Year 4 Season 4 though, which is December 2020.
Things that are getting a graphical upgrade include the water visiuals, the distance level of detail, shadow resolution, texture filtering, and of course a big old 4K update. The game is going to look absolutely incredible on next-gen consoles, which is only going to make the move from one generation to another even more appealing.
Ultimately For Honor players are going to move across to next-generation consoles regardless of what upgrades are coming to it. The game has a buzzing community that will want to enjoy it on the latest machines available. The fact that Ubisoft is offering so much to players for free is very heartwarming. Yes, it could be in some form a way they see of redeeming themselves in player’s eyes, but it’s something at least. So many publishers are still refusing to do this, hopefully Ubisoft making this move will help a few more to follow suit.
