Ubisoft announced closed beta dates for XDefiant, a free-to-play, fast-pace arcade shooter developed by Ubisoft San Francisco and featuring factions inspired from some of Ubisoft’s beloved franchises. The closed beta begins today and will run until 23rd April. Crossplay will be enabled for the Closed Beta, so players can enjoy XDefiant from their PC, PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S. Players can register for a chance to participate in the closed beta on www.playxdefiant.com.
The closed beta will introduce players to the XDefiant arena, including features that will be available at launch:
- All 14 maps that will be available at launch
- Four Ubisoft franchise-inspired factions
- 24 weapons
- 44 attachments
- Five explosive devices
Players can experience playing as one of four Ubisoft franchise-inspired factions: The Cleaners (The Division), Libertad (Far Cry 6), Echelon (Splinter Cell), and Phantoms (Ghost Recon Phantoms). Each faction includes three characters, but only one will be unlocked from each faction. The others are unlockable through missions.
While players will not be able to keep their progression at launch, they will be able to keep up to 10 exclusive cosmetic items at release.
XDefiant commemorated the start of today’s Closed Beta with a showcase on Ubisoft’s official Twitch and YouTube channels, which included a deep dive into the game, seasonal roadmap, a Q&A session with Executive Producer Mark Rubin and a special ranked mode showmatch led by streamers Patrick “Aches” Price and Jonathan “Pacman” Tucker.
