Will XDefiant crossplay? – Answered

May 20, 2024 by No Comments


With XDefiant launching on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, we have questions about filling the lobby in the competitive arena shooter. Does XDefiant have crossplay? It certainly makes playing the game against human opponents easier, so let’s find out!

XDefiant crossplay?

Yes, XDefiant offers crossplay support between PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. If you can’t find a packed lobby while playing on your chosen system, the game will automatically populate it with players from other systems. It’s on by default, as far as we can tell, but whether that’s good or bad remains to be seen.

Generally, when you have a competitive shooter on PC, those players do exceptionally well. Console players, on the other hand, are left behind. A mouse and keyboard are generally more accurate and responsive than a controller in fast FPS. It will be interesting to see how Ubisoft balances the game with all three systems in mind!

What is XDefiant?

XDefiant is Ubisoft’s competitive arena-based shooter with hero abilities and their usual gunplay, but it’s a lot more fun and entertaining. It’s similar in style to Overwatch but with Ubisoft’s usual flair. By this, we mean they’ve borrowed some combat mechanics and feel from other open-world titles in their roster like Ghost Recon and The Division.

Once you get into XDefiant for the first time, you will find the 6×6 gameplay familiar, and dare I say, fascinating. From what we saw in the beta, it’s a fun time all around.


In addition to XDefiant, Insider Gaming tracks countless other upcoming games; We are happy with most of them. Check it out:
