New For Honor update adds Quit Penalty among other balance tweaks

Quitters never prosper.

There are no two ways about it; rage quitting is annoying. Ubisoft is doing their best to keep it under control with their Samurai v. Knights v. Vikings multiplayer game, For Honor. Patch 1.08, which is out today on PC adds a rage quit penalty amongst a host of other balance tweaks.

If a player decides to leave a match right in the middle of it, a warning will appear telling them that a ten-minute matchmaking penalty will be assessed if they go through with it. On top of that, there are a few tweaks, most notably for the game's new characters, the Shinobi and Centurion.

Console players will get the patch sometime next week, but in the mean time, here are the full Patch Notes for Update 1.08.
