Ubisoft Confirms Long-Term Support For Free to Play FPS XDefiant

Ubisoft Will Not Abandon The Game!

XDefiant is an upcoming FPS game developed by Ubisoft, marking the developer’s latest attempt at the free-to-play gaming genre. The game is currently in closed beta, with many new and existing FPS fans enjoying the beta.

After the initial reveal, Ubisoft went quiet about the title. Fans did not hear much about the game for a while, but with the closed beta and new branding, the game has been receiving a positive reception from many players.

Moreover, Ubisoft has also confirmed long-term support for XDefiant.

XDefiant Long Term Support

Ubisoft’s Patrick Price said during an interview with MP1st that the company aims to support the title with massive post-launch content, and more of it will be added in the future. He stated:

“this isn’t just a one and done title, this is a title that we plan to support long term and continuously add new content into the game.”

He then continues by saying that this title will have a bright future. The developer also claimed that XDefiant would not be abandoned immediately for another project.

Live-service free-to-play gaming is currently a popular trend in the gaming industry. With games like Fortnite, Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, and more showing a successful live-service model, many developers have tried to emulate this success.

However, Ubisoft has not found its big free-to-play game yet. XDefiant could change this, as it seeks to satisfy fans of the classic Call of Duty formula, offering gameplay elements that have been altered or removed in recent games.

These elements include options like map voting, a classic loadout system, and the exclusion of skill-based matchmaking in casual games. These additions have made the game more appealing to Call of Duty and FPS fans in general.

As such, continued updates will be great for the future of XDefiant. Ubisoft also revealed that a new season would be coming to the game every three months, which will keep the fans interested.

These seasons will come with traditional seasonal content like new maps, weapons, battle passes, and more. The game’s closed beta began on April 13 and will be available until April 23. So, fans still have time to try the game before the beta ends.

XDefiant offers various characters from factions based on the Tom Clancy games. These include Cleaners from The Division, Echelon from Splinter Cell, Phantoms from Ghost Recon, and Libertad from Far Cry 6. Moreover, Ubisoft plans to add even more characters in the future.

The game also promises 14 maps at launch. XDefiant will be released on PC and nearly all modern console platforms. While a release date has not been confirmed, the game is expected to launch this year.
