Ubisoft's XDefiant Launches This Summer, Open Beta Test Arriving Later This Month 1

Following multiple closed gameplay tests over at Ubisoft, the team has announced another gameplay test session for XDefiant - its upcoming free-to-play shooter. This time it's an open test though, meaning anyone can hop in and play ahead of the full game's summer 2023 launch.

That test goes down from June 21st through June 23rd, across all current-gen platforms including Xbox Series X and S. For now, we don't have a launch date for the full game, aside from "later this summer".

We may not have a full release date yet, but the dev team is already talking about post-launch plans here. The above roadmap image shows everything coming in the game's 'preseason', while they're also aiming to launch one map per month after release.

April's XDefiant beta was very popular, so we'd imagine this open test session will be jam-packed with FPS fans later this month.
