News Ubisoft Isn't Giving Up on For Honor Yet, Dedicated Servers Planned
When we look back over the year so far, it's hard to think of many reasonably hyped games that managed to fall off the radar faster than For Honor.

Hands On Taking a Trip to the Dark Ages with For Honor on PS4
Look, Mom, no UbiTowers!
Ubisoft is one of those studios that seems to have been content for the past few years to churn out billions of decent but unexceptional sequels in big franchises like Just Dance, Assassin's Creed, and Far Cry.
