For Honor dedicated servers launching 19th February on PC

Following through on its development roadmap revealed last summer and a successful Open Test in December, the For Honor team has just announced that dedicated servers are coming to the PC version of For Honor on February the 19th. Dedicated servers for consoles will follow soon after, with exact release dates to be announced. The introduction of dedicated servers to the For Honor PVP ecosystem will remove session migration and NAT requirements, improving matchmaking and the overall stability of the online experience.

The launch of dedicated servers comes shortly after the arrival of Age of Wolves on February the 15th. Age of Wolves marks For Honor’s fifth season of updates, and features improvements to five of the Heroes, along with adjustments to player progression and ranked play. It will also include a special three-week seasonal event (with an opportunity to win extra rewards), and new training modes that will launch later in Season Five.

You can learn more about these and other changes coming in Age of Wolves by tuning into the reveal livestream, starting at 19:00 GMT on February the 8th at You’ll also have an opportunity to earn in-game rewards via Twitch Drops while watching the stream.

Enter the chaos of a raging war as a bold knight, brutal viking, or mysterious samurai, three of the greatest warrior legacies.
