How much internet data does For Honor use?
In For Honor, two teams of as many as four players each can compete across a number of online multiplayer modes. Unlike the game’s offline single player modes, these multiplayer modes use internet data. For gamers on a fixed mobile data or mobile hotspot connection, multiplayer modes can eat away at limited internet data.
To find out how much mobile data you use playing For Honor, let’s take a closer look at how much data it takes to download, update, and play the game. Sick of always keeping an eye on how much internet data you use gaming? Switch to an unlimited fixed mobile data plan.
For Honor game download size
The game download typically uses much more mobile data than updating or playing the game. See the table below for the initial For Honor file size on each console. Keep in mind that the file size is larger than the download size (which is compressed), and that the file size increases over time as developers release patches and updates for the game.
|Microsoft Windows||<53 GB|
|Playstation 4||31.74 GB|
|Xbox One||55.44 GB|
If you don’t have enough data available to download For Honor without putting your monthly data limit on the line, there’s an easy way to save data on the initial game download. Instead of downloading the game online, simply purchase the physical disk and install the game offline.
For Honor game update size
Ubisoft releases patches and updates for For Honor, which you can keep track of in the community news. These patches are usually a few hundred MBs. If you’re worried a patch or update will push you over your monthly data limit, turn off auto-updates and instead manually install updates when you have data available (at the beginning of the month, for example).
For Honor data use
For Honor uses about 100 MB of data per hour as the game host, which is about average for online gaming. The number of players in your game, your frame rate, the tick rate of your server, and whether or not you use voice chat all affect your real data use.
- The more players in a game, the more information – like player movement and stats – your internet network has to share with other players’ networks. To save internet data, play multiplayer modes with fewer teammates. Your network will use less data communicating with fewer networks.
- A higher frame rate refreshes the game more often, which makes it run faster and smoother. A lower frame rate makes it harder for you to react quickly to what’s happening in the game, but uses less data. You can adjust your frame rate (measured in FPS) in your game settings. To change your frame rate, you’ll need to disable vertical synch (V-Synch).
- A 128-tick server, which refreshes the game 128 times per second, uses about twice as much data as a 64-tick server, which refreshes the game 64 times per second.
- If you use voice chat, you’ll end up using much more data while you play the game. The game PUBG, for example uses less than 30 MB of data per hour without voice chat – but with voice chat it uses more than 50 MB of data per hour.
Upgrade to unlimited 4G LTE
If you want to play For Honor without watching your internet data use, switch to an unlimited 4G LTE connection with no monthly data limit and no bandwidth throttling.
