For Honor released a week ago and has already received praise from both fans and critics alike. However, like most games, Ubisoft’s latest title presents problems. The company, known for the Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs, and Tom Clancy’s franchises, has revealed on Reddit a hotfix patch that’s meant to repair some errors that players have been facing on the PC version of the title.
They’ve updated the message for Easy AntiCheat notifications in an attempt to make them more “user-friendly”. They also fixed an error that was preventing players from accessing the game. Support for Steam Controllers has been fixed, as they were incorrectly being defined as “inactive” despite being plugged in.
Errors regarding the exit process have also been addressed including the client storing borderless fullscreen in the options upon shutdown and the game still showing in the taskbar after closing. As for startup errors, they have fixed an issue where For Honor would start in windowed mode and the switch display mode showing up twice.
Other fixes include caching of settings on game minimization, incorrect window positions being stored after the game is minimized, and a display message will now be shown upon booting up the game if the Intel GPU driver being used to run the game is below the minimum system requirements.
Ubisoft notes, however, that this hotfix isn’t meant to address many of the errors previously outlined in a post about upcoming gameplay improvements, such as changes to characters like the Peacekeeper, Berserker, Conquerer, and Valkyrie as well as fixes to cheats that have been popping up in For Honor since launch. They’ll update players regarding when these updates become available.
Released on February 14, For Honor is an action-oriented PvP online game developed and published by Ubisoft available for PlayStation 4, XBox One, and Windows PC.
