There was a kerfuffle earlier this week when it was revealed that For Honor - Ubisoft's medieval slash-'em-up - would require a constant internet connection to play. However, as with most things in this industry, you've got to take the good with the bad; the good in this case being that much of the upcoming game's downloadable content won't cost you a penny.

Eurogamer reports that the French publisher announced this during a recent press event. The reasoning behind it being that the developer doesn't want to "split the community". Indeed, in the past, we've seen how paid DLC can create cracks in a game's multiplayer offering, with players who decide not to buy the new content getting left behind. With that in mind, Ubisoft's decision seems more than reasonable to us.
