There had been murmurs that For Honor, the swashbuckler from Ubisoft, would require an Internet connection in order to run on the PlayStation 4 – and they've since been confirmed.

This spans the single player component, apparently.

While this is undoubtedly going to frustrate, it seems like par for the course with the French publisher these days, as it attempts to shoehorn service-like business models into all of its outings. Has this prompted you to sheath your interest in the title? Raise a sword or two in the comments section below.
