For Honor's dedicated servers go live on console today

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Serving up stability.

The long-awaited dedicated server update to the console version of Ubisoft’s Viking/Samurai/Knight fighting game goes live today on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at 6am PT.

Dedicated servers aim to improve the full online experience of For Honor, reducing latency, player disconnects and host transferring while improving stability and performance.

The update marks a key part of For Honor’s Season 5 of support which is titled Age of Wolves. Along with the new servers, Age of Wolves has already included a special Apollyon’s Legacy PvE event, will seriously overhaul a few of the game’s weaker characters including the Kensei and Berserker, and will include new training modes for new players.

The update came to the PC release a few weeks back and resulted in a significant jump in match completion rates as problems with host migrations were eliminated. Ubisoft has become the master of this kind of support, demonstrating its success with team shooter Rainbow Six Siege, so we’re interested to see how long this level of sustainment lasts for smaller titles like For Honor.
