Ubisoft has revealed a new game under the umbrella of Tom Clancy. Tom Clancy’s XDefiant is a free-to-play multiplayer arena shooter featuring customizable characters from Ghost scout, Splinter Celland Parts as they battle it out across multiple game modes.
Ubisoft San Francisco is in charge of the first-person arena shooter, formerly known as Battlecat, which combines fast-paced gunfights with a punk rock soundtrack. Focusing on authentic shooter gameplay, the team is supplemented with an extensive arsenal of weapons and accessories for “accurate, satisfying gameplay”. The game will feature modes like 6v6 arena, Team Deathmatch, Domination and Escort across multiple maps. Escort divides players into two teams with attackers escorting a package to the delivery area while guards aim to stop them..
The main focus, though, is on the characters themselves. Known as Defiants, each customizable character belonging to a faction will have unique traits, abilities, and traits. Four factions will be included at launch: Werewolves (Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon), Echelon (Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell), and The Outcast and the Cleaner (Tom Clancy’s Separation). Werewolves act as tanks, Cleaners are Attack class, Echelon provides the Support role, while Outcasts complete the squad as Healer. More classes from different Tom Clancy games will be added post-launch.
Faces and weapon feeders can be mixed and matched. Once a faction is selected, the player can choose primary and secondary weapons, various attachments, and a piece of equipment. If the loading process is not performing well against the other team and the strategy needs to be changed, the player can change the load when they respawn.
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will arrive on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, Amazon Luna, and Google Stadia. The game will feature full cross-play between these platforms when it launches, although the title still doesn’t have a release window. Players can register on game website to join more upcoming beta tests. The first of which will only happen on PC in North America next month, but more are already planned for the future.
