For Honor Patch 1.09 Addresses Revenge System And Adds Colourblind Support

Plus Creative Director leaves.

For Honor received a new patch in the form of update 1.09 a couple of days ago, with the main area of focus being the Revenge syste. After a lot of testing Ubisoft have altered the system in a few ways including increasing the score of a melee hit from 10 points to 30 points after entering Revenge, as well as removing damage incurred over time from being counted towards the Revenge meter.

In addition the Time Snap has been removed. Time Snap basically made action snap to 100ms to allow for better synchronised contacts. However in For Honor this came at the cost of input latency. Now inputs should be much better than before the patch. Furthermore support for those with colour blindness has been added. Those who have Protanopia, Deuteranopia or Tritanopia colour blindness will be able to activate the relevant option on multiplayer. However single player does not support the colour blind options.

The full list of patch notes can be seen by clicking the arrow on the right.
