Ubisoft is creating a new free-to-play shooter set in the Tom Clancyverse called Tom Clancy’s XDefiant. It’s billed as a “high-octane”, 6v6 multiplayer first-person shooter – it’s “fast-paced gunfights against punk-rock moshpit,” says XDefiant executive producer Mark Rubin and creative director Jason Schroeder in a reveal video.
Developed by Ubisoft San Francisco, Tom Clancy’s XDefiant promises realistic gun battles with personalized character classes, represented by factions with special abilities. Those factions (Echelon, Outcasts, Cleaners, and Wolves) were inspired by other Tom Clancy games, like the Splinter Cell series, The Division, and Ghost Recon.
Beyond personalization and deep customization, gunplay is “a top priority,” says Rubin. XDefiant will feature “an ever-growing arsenal of authentic weapons and accessories,” explains Rubin, boasting that Ubisoft San Francisco is building “every weapon accessory for satisfying, precise gunfights.” .”
An original gameplay test for Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will launch on August 5th. Interested players can register at the game’s official website. The game is still in the early stages of development, its creators adding that “your feedback is essential to making this game great”. Schroeder said that Ubisoft plans to add to the game’s “diverse cast” with new characters, and Rubin said that Ubi SF is “committed to creating a welcoming game based on fair and transparent gameplay. .”
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will be coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X, with streaming versions for Amazon Luna and Google Stadia. Ubisoft promises cross-platform play. XDefiant is already previously went out as Battlecat, back in June.
