XDefiant, developed by Ubisoft, is a completely free-to-play first-person shooter game popularized by its fast-paced, close-quarters arena battles, reminiscent of Call of Duty. The game incorporates several characters and factions from well-known Ubisoft franchises such as Ghost Recon, The Division, and even Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell.

Players can select from several different classes, each containing their unique abilities, weapons, and gadgets. The game also offers customizable loadouts and a variety of dynamic maps that can alter the gameplay.

As of now, XDefiant is fully out and available for everyone to play. However, the server test which is currently ongoing, can provide players with a glimpse of what’s to come.
