Ubisoft has confirmed that For Honor‘s patch 1.08 will be released today on PC. The console versions will follow late next week, after certification has been concluded.

The update goes live at 5am PT, 8am ET, 1pm BST, 2pm CEST. The notes are heavily focused on balance changes, including a couple of tweaks for new heroes Centurion, and Shinobi.

Outside of these, there’s a renewed focus on reducing quitting mid-matches by introducing a quit penalty. Players will first receive a warning before quitting the match, and if they continue, a ten-minute matchmaking penalty will be given. This extends to all players in a group when the leader leaves.

Although the new rules and anti-rage quit measurements are included in the patch, they will go in effect “at a later date.” Find all the patch notes below:
