For Honor developer Ubisoft Montreal has announced that a new PC hotfix will be released today. The patch aims to take care of a few PC-specific problems reported since launch and during the beta.

Easy AntiCheat, the game’s anti-cheat system that’s been causing problems for some players, will get a couple of fixes. First, the hotfix takes care of an issue that prevented players from getting into games. The system’s error messages will now be more user-friendly.

Players using the Steam Controller will also no longer be kicked for inactivity. The patch goes live today at 8am ET, 5am PT, 1pm GMT. It’s worth noting that this is not the recently revealed gameplay patch. That one is still without a date.
