When the words Ubisoft and Next-Gen are used together, many gamers may think of the upcoming Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

However, the French gaming developers are also working to bring more of their current-gen games to the PS5 and Xbox Series X, including their medieval fantasy fighter, For Honor.
