Earlier this week, For Honor received a live update (v1.07.1) which was meant to coincide with the launch of Season 2. Unfortunately, however, it never made it onto consoles, leaving players with a version of the game that Ubisoft says was “never intended to go live.” The developer has now rectified the error and has released a new update that makes several adjustments alongside addressing various issues. You can find the full patch notes below:
