For Honor PC requirements revealed

For Honor's specs are pretty flexible, and you can get away with not having the latest high-end GPU and CPU hardware

Ubisoft today announced the PC spec requirements for its upcoming online-only game For Honor, and they're not too demanding.

For Honor looks awesome in theory, and the premise is certainly interesting--gamers take on the role of Knights, Samurai or Vikings and battle each other in a never-ending war triggered by a malevolent god--but I'm not too enthusiastic about the game being online-only for one reason: no dedicated servers. That's right, For Honor will require a persistent internet connection for its dynamic PvP battling, and will be powered by peer-to-peer networking. Oh, and For Honor has a solo campaign, but that will apparently need an online connection too. But in any case, let's get on to the specs!
