Ubisoft has just revealed the first information about its new Tom Clancy’s game, titled XDefiant, a tactical arena shooter.
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant announced by Ubisoft
We had known for a few hours that a new game from Tom Clancy was going to be announced today, since Ubisoft had teased it themselves. The latter was presented recently in the evening and promises intense first-person clashes, in line with what Call of Duty can offer, but with some differences.
According to the official announcement, Ubisoft qualifies Tom Clancy’s XDefiant as a fast-paced first-person shooter featuring intense gunplay. The game allows for a customizable experience, especially with special classes and factions, so you can find a way to play in your own style.
These factions (Wolves, Outcasts, Cleaners, and Echelon) are also made up of iconic characters, the Defiants. Each player can choose a class, a primary and secondary weapon, an accessory, and a device, and it will be possible to modify them during the fight.
Battles will take place in arenas hosting two teams of six players, but more linear modes will also be available. More information will be shared later in the summer.
No release date has yet been announced, but given that testing for XDefiant is planned in the coming weeks and months, we could see it arriving as early as this year.
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will be available for free-to-play on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. If you have missed its announcement, here is the debut trailer of the game below:
