1: Issue while launching or starting the game

If you guys are having trouble starting or launching the game then try the following mention multiple workarounds (it comes straight from the developer):

  • Workaround 1: Run Uplay in Admin mode
  • Workaround 2: Disable Anti-Virus software (BitDefender being a main offender here)or add the game and Uplay as an exception in your anti-virus software.
  • Workaround 3: If you’re running on an Intel integrated chipset, try forcing the dedicated GPU instead:
  • “Under the “manage 3d settings” tab in the nvidia control panel, you should be able to navigate to your game’s .exe and specify which GPU to use from there.
  • Workaround 4: Ensure the game is installed on your C: drive
  • Workaround 5: Try launching the game from an entirely new Windows system profile: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10
  • Workaround 6: Try unplugging your controller/non-essential peripherals then launch the game again. Once this is done you should be able to reconnect your controller. Also temporarily disable any software linked to the controllers.
  • Workaround 7: Consult the fixes provided in our EAC FAQ here

2: Change In-game language

3: Beta Rewards Not Showing Up

Many players who participated in the For Honor beta are unable to access the rewards they earned in the full game. I would like to inform you that beta rewards will be accessible in the full game later this week, as officially confirmed by Ubisoft via Twitter.

4: Error 006000043 or blocked by EasyAntiCheat

For Honor Error 006000043 is a widespread issue, and Ubisoft is still investigating the exact cause of this error, but a handful of players managed to resolve the issue by checking the game installation of the game. If you get an error message describing an integrity violation while in the game, your current game session has become “untrusted.” Multiplayer sessions will not be available in this state until the game has been restarted from the desktop:

When using Steam, update to the latest game version by verifying the integrity of the game cache.

When using Uplay, update to the latest game version by verifying the game files.

Verifying Easy Anti Cheat install by going to the For Honor installation directory, under EasyAntiCheat\, right click EasyAntiCheat_Setup.exe and choose ‘Run as Admin’. Then choose any game from the list and click the Install button.

If the game files integrity verifications do not fix your issue, Ubisoft needs your help. Contact Ubisoft customer support and send the following information in your investigation request:

  • DXdiag file,
  • Steam Log Files, usually under Program Files (x86)\Steam\logs
  • uPlay Log files, usually under Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\logs

5: Error Code 0004000008

Ubisoft has seen some reports of players getting error code 0004000008 in For Honor. This is a session timeout code that may happen on rare occasions and is recoverable only on PC.

If you encounter this error on PS4 and Xbox One, Restart the game to stop getting this error over and over again.

6: Connectivity Issue On PC, PS4, and Xbox One

Ubisoft has released a detail troubleshooting guide on For Honor Connectivity issue. All you have to do is follow the steps provided in the guide: here is the link for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

7: TITAN X Card Issue or TITAN X GeForce GPU Issue

Ubisoft is aware of an incompatibility introduced in the For Honor Beta with the early generations of TITAN X GeForce graphics cards that make it so the game does not start. Ubisoft was able to reproduce the issue with their Open BETA version but have yet to successfully reproduce it on their official release version of the game.

At the same time, Ubisoft has collaborated with nVidia in order to have a “Game Ready” driver aimed at providing an optimal game experience to For Honor players. This driver will be available shortly.
