While the matchmaking servers appear to be struggling a bit under the load of blood-thirsty warriors trying to find a match, it does seem Ubisoft is on top of For Honor’s issues – and the company has now posted a list of bugs and issues that are on their radar for fans to openly see, plus a list of suggested workarounds people can try out if they encounter them.

The bugs are pretty wide ranging. Known PC bugs and issues really run the gamut, from some overzealous anti-cheat software preventing the game from launching at all right through to stutters during gameplay or the complete inability to quit back to desktop. Each comes within a suggestion from Ubisoft on how to fix it – some very useful, some less so. On the console side things seem more stable, though Ubi does acknowledge the ongoing connectivity and online issues.

Here’s the list, via a thread posted by a Ubisoft community manager over on the For Honor section of the official Ubisoft Community Forums.
