    XDefiant boasts several features designed to elevate the competitive experience for PC gamers. Players can take advantage of uncapped frame rates for maximum responsiveness and enjoy the game in widescreen resolutions for an immersive visual experience.

    Additionally, XDefiant supports both DirectX 11 and 12 for graphical flexibility, and Ubisoft recommends using a Solid State Drive (SSD) for faster loading times.

    A Long-Awaited Arrival

    XDefiant’s launch has been a long time coming. After a successful open beta held last summer, the game has seen multiple delays. Despite these setbacks, Ubisoft is finally ready to unleash XDefiant to the world, especially following the recent cancellation of other Ubisoft free-to-play titles like The Division: Heartland.

    A Familiar Feel with a Ubisoft Twist

    XDefiant’s fast-paced arena shooter game play might draw comparisons to games like Call of Duty. This isn’t entirely surprising considering the involvement of former Call of Duty producer Mark Rubin as XDefiant’s executive producer.
