Ubisoft’s sword-swinging fantasy action game For Honor is released tomorrow and reviews for the game are on hold until then.
As it turns out, reviewers are unable to play For Honor’s final build until after the game launches.
There’s not a massive reason for concern, though, firstly because Ubisoft have been fairly transparent with the game giving fans and critics plenty of opportunities to get hands on in the last few weeks and months.
Equally, successful games such as DOOM have shown that just because a game can’t be reviewed until after launch, doesn’t always mean a company is hiding something from reviewers.
Meanwhile, anyone not bothered about reviews who have either already ordered the game or are waiting to find out exactly when the game unlocks on PS4, Xbox One and PC won’t have to wait long.
For PC users the release times have already been revealed.
According to the Steam store countdown clock For Honor will unlock at approximately 5am UK time on February 14.
PS4 and Xbox One Unlock times have yet to be revealed, but the Xbox store listing suggests the game will unlock at midnight.
If this is the case, we’d imagine that the game servers will be available for both PS4 and Xbox One users at the same time.
Those who have already confirmed their purchase might also want to get started on downloading the game if they have any ideas about playing the game at midnight.
On the PlayStation Store, the game is listed as weighing in at 30.5GB, while Xbox One users need a little more space at 34.34 GB.
PC users are advised by the Steam product page to keep 40 GB free space available.
The game launches just hours after Ubisoft revealed that the successful open beta had been downloaded 3 million times.
Unfortunately, however, progress made during the open beta will be wiped when the full game launches.
The news was confirmed by Ubisoft on Twitter, telling fans:
“Progress made during the beta will not carry into the final release.”
Looking further into the future and it’s unlikely that players will ever see it come to platforms outside of PS4, Xbox One and PC.
That’s because Jason VandenBerghe, Ubisoft’s Creative Director for the game, has pretty much ruled out a Nintendo Switch Port.
Speaking to Trusted Reviews about the possibility of a Switch port, VandenBerghe admitted that it’s not even being considered right now:
“It’s not something that we’re focused on. We’ve been in development on For Honor for a long time and the question of ‘Will this game work?’ is the big thing.
“I just want to get the game out on the core platform and see who plays it. Once we’re there and we’ve established if we’re successful, then I think we can look at where we’re gonna go from here.
“It’s weird, but it’s not even a question we’re addressing right now.”
