Ubisoft has just announced a new free-to-play, fast-paced arena shooter, Tom Clancy’s XDefiant. Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will combine intense gunplay with personalized loadouts and specialized factions, as teams of gunfighters – called Defiants – battle for domination.
Players will be able to personalize their Defiant to match their playstyle. Players can choose their faction, traits, abilities, and ultras. Additionally, they can select from an arsenal of primary and secondary weapons, attachments, and a device to complete their loadout. Furthermore, they can tweak their loadout on the fly to adapt to an ever-changing battlefield.
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant will also offer a variety of competitive 6v6 arena and linear game modes. For example, two of them are Domination and Escort. Players can combine that with a large pool of uniquely designed maps in rotation.
As the press release reads, Wolves, Outcasts, Cleaners, and Echelon factions will battle across iconic locations. Ubisoft will keep adding to its cast of Defiants as the game evolves, drawing on a range of characters and abilities from the Clancy universe and beyond.
Lastly, the first test will start on August 5th for PC players in the US and Canada.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
