For Honor Hotfix to Address Steam Controller, Easy AntiCheat Issues

The hotfix does not affect issues to be addressed in coming gameplay improvements that the developer had previously announced.


For Honor is a really good fighting game pitting Vikings, Samurai and Knights against each other in a struggle for supremacy, but some early network issues and nitpicky bugs have plagued it since launch. A patch coming today aims to address some of those.

The patch notes reveal numerous technical and hardware problems being fixed, as well as a problem where Steam controller users were inadvertently getting booted as AFK. Here is a complete list:  

  • Easy AntiCheat
    • FIXED: Updated the error messaging for certain Easy AntiCheat notifications to make them more user friendly
    • FIXED: Error that was incorrectly blocking some players from entering the game
  • Steam Controller users will no longer be kicked as inactive (AFK) when providing controller input
  • Addressed bugs in the the shutdown process
    • FIXED: game sometimes storing borderless in the options on shutdown
    • FIXED: game still showing in taskbar after pressing x. When clicked you would see a small window without borders that closes shortly after.
  • Addressed several PC startup/full screen bugs
    • FIXED: game starting in window mode when clicking somewhere else during startup
    • FIXED: game switch display mode twice on startup
    • FIXED: game switching to borderless when ALT+ENTER after previous switch to full screen failed
  • Fixed the caching of settings on game minimization
    • FIXED: Incorrect window positions being stored in options when game is minimized
  • A message will now be displayed on BOOT if Intel GPU driver is below min spec

Ubisoft had previously announced some upcoming gameplay improvements that are still being worked on, such as balance tweaks for the Valkyrie and Guard Break bug fix for the Conqueror and Berserker. These will be coming sometime in the near future, the company said.
