For Honor: All The Known Issues Listed Here For PS4, Xbox One, And PC

Workarounds are available for some of these problems.

Ubisoft’s swordfighting game For Honor arrived this week, but its launch did not go exactly to plan. Now, the publisher has rounded up all of the most “critical” issues that it is aware of and provided some workarounds where available.

On PC, some players are reporting that For Honor will not launch due to some kind of problem with the game’s Easy AntiCheat program. For this, players can navigate to the “Verify files” option from For Honor’s Properties tab to fix the problem until a more permanent solution is available.

Another PC issue prevents players from quitting For Honor and returning to the desktop after receiving an error message in matchmaking. The only workaround right now is to restart the game.

On console, there are fewer known issues right now. One of these is a connectivity problem where groups that contain players from different regions (i.e. North America and Europe) run into matchmaking issues. Ubisoft says “it’s not recommended to create mixed-region groups.”

You can see a full rundown of For Honor’s PC and console known issues below, with descriptions written by Ubisoft. We’ll continue to update this post if more issues pop up and others are fixed.

GameSpot has played a portion of For Honor. Reviewer Matt Espineli said in his review in progress,” For Honor already has the workings of a well-made multiplayer fighting game.”

Stay tuned for our full review in the near future, and in the meantime, check out our For Honor footage and features below.
