XDefiant Closed Beta Coming April 13

XDefiant is hosting a closed beta from April 13-23, and you can register today at playxdefiant.com. The closed beta period will introduce Ranked matches and feature five game modes - Escort, Zone Control, Domination, Occupy, and Hot Shot - as well as four playable factions and all 14 maps that will be available at launch. It will also include access to the game's full launch-day loadout options, which include 24 weapons, 44 attachments, and five explosive devices. Player, weapon, and challenge progression will be available during XDefiant's closed beta; while your progress will not carry over to launch day, there are 10 exclusive cosmetic items you will be able to keep, including the XD Style emoji, MP7 Graffiti weapon skin, and more.

To commemorate the launch of closed beta, the team is hosting an XDefiant Showcase on Ubisoft's official Twitch and YouTube channels on April 13 at 10 AM PT. The stream will include a deep dive on the game, including factions, loadouts, maps, and modes, details on the closed beta, a seasonal roadmap, and a Q&A with Mark Rubin, XDefiant's executive producer. The show will also feature a special ranked mode showmatch helmed by streamers Aches and Pacman.
