Ubisoft’s new multiplayer
Ubisoft has unveiled their new game, Tom Clancy’s XDefiant, a free-to-play multiplayer first person shooter that will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Ubisoft Connect (PC), Amazon Luna, and Google Stadia.
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant is being developed by Ubisoft San Francisco with Mark Rubin as executive producer and Jason Schroeder as creative director.
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant factions, game modes, and gameplay
With this game, the developer has confirmed previous leaks that Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will include features from previous Tom Clancy games.
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will include four factions:
- Wolves (Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon)
- Echelon (Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell)
- Outcasts and Cleaners (Tom Clancy’s The Division)
Ubisoft says “Defiants can be personalized to match playstyles; when a round begins, players can choose a faction with unique traits, abilities, and ultra before arming their Defiant with primary and secondary weapons, attachments, and a device to complete their loadout.”
Players will be able to customize their loadout of primary and secondary weapons, attachments, and more. These loadouts can be changed while respawning.
Game modes include 6v6 arena battles and objective-based game modes like TDM, Domination, and Escort.
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant cross-play
The company has stated that on launch, Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will include the cross-platform play feature allowing players from different platforms will be able to engage in multiplayer action with each other.
