Following a series of betas and open tests, XDefiant now offers a wealth of preseason content for players worldwide. Key features include:

  • 14 maps inspired by other popular Ubisoft titles
  • Five factions inspired by Ubisoft franchises, with one faction to be earned or purchased
  • 24 weapons
  • 44 attachments
  • Five devices

Players can immerse themselves in gameplay as one of five factions, each inspired by Ubisoft’s iconic franchises: The Cleaners (The Division), Libertad (Far Cry 6), Echelon (Splinter Cell), DedSec (Watch Dogs 2), and Phantoms (Ghost Recon Phantoms). Each faction comprises three characters, but only one is initially unlocked. The remaining characters can be unlocked by completing in-game missions.

XDefiant preseason features two main game modes: Arena and Linear.

Arena-style matches include:

  • Domination: Teams compete to control three fixed zones.
  • Occupy: Teams fight to control a single zone that moves around the map periodically.
  • HotShot: Players aim to achieve the most KOs by collecting tags from fallen foes or allies. The player with the most tags becomes the HotShot, gaining speed buffs but is marked on the map for all to see.

Linear matches feature:

  • Zone Control: The attacking team works to secure five zones in progression across the map, while defenders fight to stop them.
  • Escort: The attacking team must deliver a package to its final destination, while defenders try to halt their progress and push the package back.

Following the preseason, XDefiant will introduce seasonal content, including a new faction, three new maps, three new weapons, and much more each season.
