After five years, “For Honor” will finally have crossplay. Ubisoft made the announcement this Friday (11), confirming the arrival of the feature requested by fans for a long time.
Players from different platforms will now be able to connect and play together. The implementation will take place in two parts. In the first, from March 17, it will be possible to connect with users of other devices, but without forming groups. This option will be available in the second wave of the update.

Check out the official announcement below:
“Crossplay has been an ambition of our team for a long time. There have been many technical challenges in bringing Crossplay to For Honor as the core technical components of the game were not originally designed to support it (…) Thanks to the hard work of the team, we are now proud to bring Crossplay to our Warriors. We believe Crossplay will benefit For Honor and its long-term vision.
The company also revealed that the new feature can be disabled by the user at any time. However, it reinforces that matches may take longer to find if this option is disabled.
“For Honor” is an online multiplayer battle arena game, released by Ubisoft in 2017. The game has the medieval period as its backdrop. Players can choose a character from three different factions: Legion, Chosen and Warborn which are the medieval knights, samurai and vikings respectively. The goal is to eliminate other teams’ opponents, basically, but there’s a detailed point system for that.
The game is available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
