Just yesterday, Ubisoft teased a new Tom Clancy game alongside some short gameplay clips. We now have the official details thanks to Ubisoft! It’s titled “XDefiant” and is a 6v6 arena shooter that’s free-to-play!
In development by Ubisoft San Francisco, and led by former Call of Duty Executive Producer Mark Rubin, XDefiant will feature faction-based abilities, and is set to launch for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Ubisoft Connect (PC). It’s targeted to feature full crossplay at launch, with the initial test set to begin this August 5! Players can register now at the official website in order to get a chance to be part of the tests (initial test is only available for PC, with more tests planned later this year).
XDefiant Game Features:
- Personalized Playstyle: Players can personalize their Defiant to match their playstyle. Players can choose a faction with unique traits, abilities and ultra, then select from an arsenal of primary and secondary weapons, attachments, and a device to complete their loadout – and even tweak it on the fly (after respawning) to adapt to an ever-changing battlefield.
- Competitive Clashes: The game offers a variety of competitive 6-v-6 arena and linear game modes, such as Domination and Escort. Combine that with a large pool of uniquely designed maps in rotation and no two matches will feel the same.
- Diverse Factions of Defiants: XDefiant will initially feature factions such as the Wolves (Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon), Echelon (Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell) and the Outcasts and Cleaners (Tom Clancy’s The Division) battling across iconic locations. Additional Defiants will be added as the game evolves, drawing on a range of characters and abilities from the Tom Clancy universe … and beyond.
We’ll have more on XDefiant, so stay tuned!
