Well…that was fast. The power of technology is always to be respected, but it’s also to be feared, especially when it comes to those who can cheat and hack their way to victory in a short amount of time. The upcoming Ubisoft game For Honor is not even released yet, and it has hacks for it!
As you can see in the video below, this is real, VERY real. So real that someone decided to post it on the Ubisoft forums to show it off…not sure how smart that was to be honest though. To be clear, this hack is only on the PC version of the game, but, it’s still a problem. As the hack name implies, you can use a bot to make sure you block perfectly on time, or break another characters guard with little effort.
Again, this has been done recently, which means players have used the beta to implement this and take advantage. Some people even state that they think they’ve seen this in their own games, which could mean the hack is spreading pretty quickly.
In the long run, it means Ubisoft will have to monitor For Honor very closely. This game is trying to ensure quality and fun multiplayer for all, and hacks like this are a threat to that. Then again, if someone doesn’t know the hack exists, and they don’t think it’s anything more than a person with great skill, what’s their to report?
Hacks like this are very common in PC games and their online multiplayer titles. It’s up to you the community to make sure Ubisoft hears about this, and makes sure For Honor is as close to hack free as possible.
