Tom Clancy's XDefiant

Ubisoft have announced Tom Clancy’s XDefiant, a free-to-play 6v6 multiplayer arena shooter.

Developed by Ubisoft San Francisco, the game has four classes or rather faction. The Wolves (tanks), Cleaners (assault), Echelon (support), and Outcasts (healer) are also inspired by maverick groups from across Tom Clancy titles and beyond. More of these “Defiants” will be added as the game continues, also drawing from the Tom Clancy universe.

You can further customize your characters’ traits, abilities, ultra, weapons, attachments, and devices to turn the match in your favor. Matches will include Domination and Escort, further supported by a large pool of maps in rotation.

You can find the Worldwide reveal trailer below.


The first closed test begins August 5th on Windows PC for residents of North America and Canada.

Tom Clancy’s XDefiant is coming soon to Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna.

You can find the full rundown (via Ubisoft) below.

Personalized Playstyle
Personalize your Defiant to match your playstyle. Choose your faction, traits, abilities, and ultras. Select from an arsenal of primary and secondary weapons, attachments, and a device to complete your loadout – then tweak it on the fly to adapt to an ever-changing battlefield.

Competitive Clashes
Tom Clancy’s XDefiant offers a variety of competitive 6v6 arena and linear game modes, such as Domination and Escort. Combine that with a large pool of uniquely designed maps in rotation and no two matches will feel the same.

Diverse Factions of Defiants
Wolves, Outcasts, Cleaners, and Echelon factions battling across iconic locations is just the starting point. We’ll keep adding to our cast of Defiants as the game evolves, drawing on a range of characters and abilities from the Clancy universe and beyond.
