Tom Clancy’s XDefiant: We tell you the first details of Tom Clancy’s XDefiant, the new competitive multiplayer shooter from Ubisoft.

Tom Clancy’s XDefiant First Details

The launch factions will be four: Wolves (Ghost Recon: Breakpoint), Cleaners (The Division), Echelon (Splinter Cell) and the Outcasts (The Division). The Defiant, as the character you control is called, can be customized based on your play style and elements of these groups, such as your abilities or the ultras you will have.

“Choose your equipment from an arsenal of primary and secondary weapons, accessories and a device to complete your selection and modify it on the fly to adapt to a constantly changing battlefield,” explains the company on its official website. During the trailer they emphasize that they want to give importance to gunplay, making weapons feel unique and different when pulling the trigger.

Although it has not transcended how many playable zones it will have, we know that we will face “in emblematic places”, which suggests maps extracted from the games in question. The title is being developed by Ubisoft San Francisco, who warn that it is still “in development.” Although the first test takes place in those selected regions on PC, Tom Clancy’s XDefiant is slated for release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna, and the PC itself. The news jumps a few days after knowing the delay of another of the games with the writer’s stamp: Rainbow Six Extraction.
