XDefiant is a brand new free-to-play game from Ubisoft that is getting ready to launch at the end of this year. But before the official release, the studio is preparing an Open Beta to fully test its functionality.

This new FPS is set in the Tom Clancy universe and will revolve around 6v6 matches, where players will have to choose different abilities to multiply their team’s chances to win. XDefiant is focused on multiplayer gameplay, so cross-platform and cross-progression are key to guarantee its success.

Ubisoft stated that XDefiant will offer cross-progression within PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. In order to do so, gamers will need to link their Ubisoft account to their PSN or Xbox account.

Those who are playing the XDefiant Open Beta should be aware that any progression made won’t be carried into the full game experience; although players who unlock skins from the XDefiant Twitch Drops will be able to use them once the full game releases.
