When is XDefiant coming to Steam? – Answered

May 21, 2024 by No Comments


As for Ubisoft titles, as much as I enjoy their popcorn games, I usually wait until the inevitable Steam launch before picking anything up. They usually fall at a significant discount. But when you have a game like XDefiant, which is free-to-play, the only thing stopping you from enjoying the moment is Ubisoft Connect. For some this is enough. So, when is XDefiant coming to Steam?

When will XDefiant launch on Steam?

Currently, Ubisoft Connect is the only way to play XDefiant on PC. However, according to an insider at the studio, that will change in the coming months. While we don’t have an exact release date yet, we do know that XDefiant will be coming to Steam “in the next few months.”

If you look at past Ubisoft titles, they usually launch on Steam a year after Ubisoft Connect. However, XDefiant is a free-to-play title, which means Ubisoft isn’t soaking in all the retail price purchases. No one is making the cut. As such, I truly believe we’ll see XDefiant on Steam in six months or less.

What is XDefiant?

XDefiant is a free-to-play arena shooter with heroes and factions from various Ubisoft franchises like Far Cry 6 to Libertard, but also brand new characters and factions in the universe.

The game offers various game modes, including objective-based modes and several unique maps to battle with other players. Plus, you’ll have personalized loadouts, meaning no two heroes are truly the same. You can customize your weapons with over 40 unique attachments, giving loadouts a welcome depth!
