Wait, you mean 40 Gb of update?! Does it mean that the whole game weights around 90 Gb?! I do not have enough space for that! That sounds impossible, how can a new mode, 3 maps and 4 heroes weight so much? You can't even put the graphic update in there, because it should replace the old graphics. Tell me it doesn't work this way. Or I won't be able to play it until I get a new PC. (T^T)

No one answered me: will the game occupy 90Gb in the Hard Drive or will it remain 50Gb? Because I don't have the space for that..

Never pre-order unless it's from somewhere you can get a refund if it sucks.

In the dev stream, they said that they were gutting down the size of the game due to the graphic enhancement. I assume, don't quote me on this, that the total of the game after Marching Fire will be 40gb.

So the update will make the whole game occupy less space? That's nice! I only had 5Gb remaining in my HD.

But still no fix to one of the fundamental flaws of this game? I mean still laggy players all over, still they get the advantage? I mean playing on console and they you even in ranked have to fight 80-120 ping players that only play assassins. I mean they don`t even know how to delay a light, because all their lights are like 200ms or no animation/indicator. I could live with this if it was once in a blue moon, but, when it is 2/3 of the fights you do in 1v1, 2v2, ranked or dom it gets kinda frustating. You still have no feedback on issues like this? Do you intend to do updates more than just big money patch every now and then? I mean you change heroes wait half a year and still don`t even do a small numbers tweak on them?

I hope you actually start fixing this game, or I hope it dies out so maybe Ubi will be forced to actually start caring about more than just a cash grab, this is at least what a large portion of the community thinks. (I know the develpoers want to make this game good, but the cash people at the top only cares about cash, sadly.)

You shouldn't fill up your HDD like that. Maximum of 60-70%. Everything above will slow the HDD down.

Yeah, I was going by the timer on the download, for us that don't have crazy fast internet this definitely kills any chance of playing it yoday with a 29 gb download, it's annoying that we can't at least pre-download, not sure what that's all about, when I hit download nothing happens.

Because a Season Pass is not the same as a Lifetime Pass. A Season Pass ends as soon as the last piece of advertised DLC content on that pass is delivered. In For Honor's case that was Shaman and Aramusha.

I want to ask if you will get back that old upgrading, i mean like that demage which you could and stamina regen.

New perks just suck beacause they dont have to do anything with your hero and items are now just fashion. I dont see any use in game.

These perks just suck and i not only one who dont like it so please answear meeeee.


Now i just play this game to complete daily misions for money and go away beacause its not fun anymore if i cant play my almost one shot raider or highlander.

Thank you for reading.

For European PS4 Players who pre-ordered Marching Fire. Those affected should have their purchased content unlocked within the next 24 hours. Please go here for more information and details on compensation: https://ubi.li/89nqs

Also, If you are having a problem specifically with game sharing on Xbox, we'll be posting an update to that very shortly.

I bought pre-order add-ons (Mirching Fire Extensions), tell me, four new hero faction Lin I have available only 2 weeks before October 30? Then I have to pay 15,000 steel for each character and bought the pre-MF expansions?

Hello.
1. Should the Gold version with the session pack not get this extension?
2. Where the hell is my equipment?
3. You buy cash for gold, to find the most suitable skills for attack or defense, now the whole cash has gone down the drain.
4. F*** y***
5.Delete GAME ! ! !

Questions
I heard the DLCs in For Honor were free but I hear that Marching Fire requires you to buy it? I'm confused.
Do I need to buy all DLCs to play all modes and characters?
Does the season pass give you access to all paid DLCs?


I was gonna purchase since it's on special but this is confusing me.

Are there any other gamemodes that have to be unlocked with real money purchase or is it just arcade mode?

Also I'm in Australia, any reason to fear lag?
Two of my friends recommended against buying For Honor because you get a lot of lag in Aus.
I get lag in other Ubisoft games and my internet is pretty solid.

Also Im on PC
