XDefiant’s Launch Timeline
XDefiant is on the launch pad, ready for lift-off later this summer, subsequent to our Open Session. Following this test, we will announce the final launch date. For a sneak peek, here’s what to anticipate from our initial phase – the Preseason.
The Preseason will span six weeks and will showcase the factions and maps you’ve grown fond of during the Insider Sessions and Closed Beta.
Year 1 Roadmap
Post Preseason, XDefiant will operate on a seasonal rhythm. Every quarter, players can look forward to new weapons, maps, events, and a new faction.
Year 1 will introduce a total of:
- 4 additional factions
- 12 new weapons
- 12 additional maps
We are thrilled to consistently introduce innovative and engaging content each season, drawing from the iconic worlds of Ubisoft.
