Honor is certainly not a cross-platform. Although an official statement is yet to be released by Ubisoft if the title would enable cross-play between different platforms. According to the developer’s website after some time there would be more information to share about features of the cross-play. This might mean that they are thinking of adding functionality in the future for visibility. Since as per the reports the team is working dedicatedly to develop the features. After the release of the statement, the assumptions regarding the opening of the idea shortly are more evident.
Gamers have been quite optimistic regarding the update. Honor is one of the popular fantasy fighters where classic warriors from a wide range of periods fought against each other on battlefields. It was a 1 on 1 battle between Samurai and knights. The individuals who are fond of history are fascinated to see exaggerated versions of it and most importantly they love playing this game and also recommend their history freak friends to play along with them.
Who can play this For Honor game?
Gamers that have upgraded from prior gen can freely play this game and keep a tab on their progress from the last generation. This feature has been added by Ubisoft. Although the gamers can still play the game with their friends irrespective of the generation they are playing on.
There have been several new and upcoming releases taking place whose integration has been completely botched by the versions like PS5 and Xbox series. For instance, games such as Battlefield 6 would have various requirements related to lobbying restricting those users who are playing with their pals. Although many of the editions are yet to launch a technologically updated game, taking advantage of all the upgraded features would excite the gamers even more.
How is cross-platform different?
As of now, there is no cross-platform play in Honor. It is mostly because to keep a traditional sense so that users can join the lobby of anyone according to their preference around the world irrespective of the platform they have been playing.
The gameplay which is often between keyboard and mouse as well as with traditional controllers is slightly different in such cases. Although honor constitutes cross-platform play which can be played in a quite different way. However, the users are not allowed to play together since all the contributions are channeled toward the game’s Faction war irrespective of the platforms the users are currently on.
Across the different honor gaming platforms, there is only a single Faction war and you’re contributing to it regardless of you being on PS4 or Onex one. What mostly matters is participation.
Most of the gamers in the gaming community are disappointed that the features are taking a lot of time to get developed. Games like Rainbow Six Siege were about to get incorporated with cross-play as per the developers but the plan never took off.
Ubisoft said they are still working on the development of the features but their first announcement took place 2 years back in 2019. Gamers are told to be patient since cross-play is in progress but it would take some time.
The latest updates for all different kinds of platforms in every Crossplay game more or less arrive at the same time. It’s quite common that in Crossplay games the users who are using the older version won’t be able to match up with the gamers who are using the latest version. The users who are using older versions are quite prone to face mismatch issues and they might not be able to access all the features. Since all the features are developed keeping in mind such factors.
The developers aim to maintain a stable as well as an equal platform for every player. They are not likely to receive any kind of complaints from the users regarding the differentiation in terms of the platform which they are facing. The gamers who play from PC are most likely to cheat via keyboard and mouse. If a game constitutes multiple players then it would be quite easy for the players to make matches with each other. So the gamers keep in mind such things while playing the game.
