As the anniversary of For Honor approaches, Ubisoft Montreal has released a development trailer announcing the game's fifth season, dubbed Age of Wolves. Along with new gear, weapons, emotes, executions, and character balancing, one of the biggest changes Age of Wolves will bring is the addition of dedicated servers. 

According to the post announcing Season Five, "Age of Wolves will also herald the implementation of a dedicated server infrastructure. By changing the way you connect to For Honor matches, the development team is doing away with resyncing, session migrations, and NAT requirements in order to deliver stable connectivity on all platforms."

In addition to dedicated servers, Age of Wolves will also introduce narrative-driven training features that will allow new players to learn the basics while encouraging more experienced players to complete warrior trials and compete against other players in an arena.

Age of Wolves is set to release on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 February 15.
