Ubisoft Announces Fast-Paced Tom Clancy’s XDefiant, Closed Beta Begins Next Week


Ubisoft has just recently announced a completely new and original fast-paced title called Tom Clancy’s XDefiant. The game’s closed beta will begin next week on the 5th of August but requires you to sign up for a chance to play.

According to Ubisoft, the game is a free-to-play, fast-paced arena shooter that combines intense gunplay with personalized loadouts and specialized factions, as teams of gunfighters called Defiants battle for domination.

Check out the trailer below:

XDefiant will immerse players at the forefront of the Tom Clancy universe at iconic locations in the throes of technicolor chaos, with maps mixing indoor and outdoor environments, ensuring smooth gameplay and unpredictable engagements.

XDefiant will be a new take on competitive FPS that will offer you a high-octane gameplay experience, combining fluid and visceral combat with a lot of freedom and personalization.


Additional features include:

  • 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.

For any more details and gameplay, we have to wait for the closed beta launch and additional gameplay trailers to understand what Ubisoft bringing to the table.
