XDefiant Preseason Launches

Ubisoft now offers the launch of XDefiant, its free-to-play first-person shooter. This is still considered preseason, and this page has details on the preseason, which includes a battle pass with both free and premium components. Here's a previous Deep Dive Trailer with a look at gameplay and a Preseason Battle Pass Trailer with more on that. Here's the news:
Today, Ubisoft released the much-anticipated XDefiant, a free-to-play, fast-paced arcade shooter developed by Ubisoft San Francisco* and featuring factions inspired from some of Ubisoft’s beloved franchises. Players can download and play XDefiant for free from their PC via Ubisoft Connect, PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S. To download XDefiant, go to playxdefiant.com/download_pco.

After a series of betas and open tests, everyone can now enjoy all the preseason content XDefiant has to offer, including:

  • 14 maps inspired from other Ubisoft titles
  • Five Ubisoft franchise-inspired factions (one faction to be earned or purchased)
  • 24 weapons
  • 44 attachments
  • Five devices

Players can experience playing as one of five Ubisoft franchise-inspired factions: The Cleaners (The Division), Libertad (Far Cry 6), Echelon (Splinter Cell), DedSec (Watch Dogs 2) and Phantoms (Ghost Recon Phantoms). Each faction includes three characters, but only one will be unlocked from each faction. The others are unlockable through completing in-game missions.
