Ubisoft has just announced Tom Clancy’s XDefiant, an upcoming 6v6 free-to-play first-person shooter that’s a crossover of the various Tom Clancy games. Specifically, the game will feature four factions, each of which originate from a specific game in the Tom Clancy series.
XDefiant is developed by Ubisoft San Francisco and led by seasoned FPS expert Mark Rubin (Executive Producer) and Ubisoft San Francisco veteran Jason Schroeder (Creative Director).
Here’s a quick rundown of XDefiant’s features (from Ubisoft):
- Personalized Playstyle: Players can personalize their Defiant to match their playstyle. Players can choose a faction, traits, abilities, and ultras, 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: XDefiant 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), the 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.
- Game modes: XDefiant will have a variety of game modes to match players’ unique playstyles and allow them to channel their team-based, competitive nature. Players can choose competitive modes like Team Deathmatch or Domination, as well as linear modes such as Escort.
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will release soon on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, complete with crossplay. Meanwhile, XDefiant’s first test will go live on August 5, 2021, though it will only be available for PC in the US and Canada.
