Tom Clancy’s will join Fortnite. On Monday, Ubisoft announced the launch of a new free first-person shooter game in Tom Clancy’s XDefiant, which will provide “fast-paced 6 vs. 6 arena battles with factional capabilities.” The factions in XDefiant will be inspired by Tom Clancy’s other past series, including Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell, and The Division (which will soon launch its own free game derivative product). XDefiant will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S/X and PC (via Ubisoft Connect), and will support Amazon Luna and Google Stadia game streaming. It is also expected to realize a comprehensive cross-platform game.
Ubisoft claims that XDefiant will become a new attempt in the competitive FPS genre because it combines high-intensity, smooth and heartfelt gameplay with freedom and personalization. You can choose your faction (the “tank” wolf in “Ghost Recon”, the “support” echelon in “Split Cell”, and the “treatment” wanderers and “assault” cleaners in The Division), And your characteristics, abilities, primary and secondary weapons, and accessories. You can change all of these on the fly to suit the fighting conditions. XDefiant executive producer and FPS veteran Mark Rubin said that gunfights are “the top priority” and as time goes by, the game will provide more and more weapons.
Ubisoft stated that the maps in XDefiant will mix indoor and outdoor environments, and will rotate between a large number of maps and competitive and linear game modes (such as “domination” and “escort”, although we don’t know much about them)-with Make sure that XDefiant will never feel the same in the two games. XDefiant is developed by Ubisoft San Francisco (Rocksmith+), with Rubin and Jason Schroeder as creative directors, and is currently in the early stages of development. But Ubisoft announced this game because it wants players to participate in it from the beginning.
For Ubisoft, this is an effort to promote more on-site service experiences, trying to imitate the success of companies such as Epic Games (Fortnite), Activision (Call of Duty: War Zone), and Electronic Arts (Apex Legends). XDefiant follows Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland, which is a free derivative product that will land on all major platforms. In early July, Ubisoft confirmed that it is developing a new Assassin’s Creed game code-named Infinity, which is said to be an evolving game in GTA online mode, although it may have more connection settings and therefore greater ambitions.
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant does not have a release date for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Stadia and Luna. But you can now sign up for the early game test beginning on August 5.
