Ubisoft has just announced the next game in the Tom Clancy series, titled Tom Clancy’s XDefiant. It is set to be a free-to-play multiplayer first-person shooter. It will allow two teams of six players each to face off in action-packed arena battles.
The official registration page describes it as: “a free-to-play, fast-paced arena shooter that combines intense gunplay with personalized loadouts and specialized factions, as teams of gunfighters – called Defiants – battle for domination.” Registering will allow players a chance to play the game early and receive updates on the game. The first closed test will begin on August 5 for PC players. However, Ubisoft is limiting the closed test to the US and Canada.
Ubisoft San Francisco is developing Tom Clancy’s XDefiant. Executive producer Mark Rubin and creative director Jason Schroeder will be at the helm. It will feature customizable Defiants, where players can choose their faction, traits, abilities, and ultras. There will also be a wide arsenal of primary and secondary weapons, attachments, and devices. The game will also release with different game modes such as Domination and Escort.
Factions from the Tom Clancy universe also inspired the factions featured in the game. The Wolves, Outcasts, Cleaners, and Echelon factions have already been confirmed. Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will be available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Google Stadia. There is no set release date announced at this time.
For more on the Tom Clancy series, The Division: Heartland was also announced earlier in the year. Similar to Tom Clancy’s XDefiant, this game is also set to be free-t0-play.
