GSK Faction in XDefiant

XDefiant Season 2 is set to be the next major content drop, so you might be wondering when it’s due to arrive and what it will bring.

Season 1 brought plenty of new additions to Ubisoft’s free-to-play shooter, including the L115 Sniper, LVOA-C Assault Rifle, and GSK Faction. But players are always looking ahead to what’s coming next.

Here’s when XDefiant Season 2 is due to start and all of the confirmed content so far.

XDefiant Season 2 release date

XDefiant Season 2 is set to begin on Wednesday, September 24, 2024. This is according to the in-game timer shown on the Season 1 Battle Pass which is counting down to the update, but the date hasn’t been officially confirmed by Ubisoft.

Of course, there’s every chance the devs could delay it or move it forward depending on how development progresses, so we’ll be sure to update this page with any announcements.

What to expect in Season 2

  • Three weapons
  • New Faction (Codename Buzz)
  • New modes
  • Battle Pass with 90 Tiers
  • Weapon adjustments
  • Three maps
XDefiant Year 1 content roadmap
Ubisoft have revealed their plans for the first year of XDefiant.

Although the devs are yet to officially reveal what’s coming in the update, they did give us a broad overview of what to expect in the Year 1 roadmap. This explained that every major update in the first 13 months will feature a new Faction, three weapons, and three maps.

It’s also confirmed that the Battle Pass will feature 90 Tiers of unique rewards, including the new guns as well as skins and camos.

We’ll likely get more news about what’s coming in XDefiant Season 2 later on in Season 1, so we’ll update this page with all the latest details.

In the meantime, Ranked Play has finally made its full debut, so make sure you’re equipped with the best Ranked loadouts and Faction.
