XDefiant Launch Might Finally Be Near After Ubisoft Rewards Drop Online

XDefiant has been through the wringer. The online multiplayer shooter was originally announced in 2021 and has since undergone multiple online beta tests, revamps and more.

In late 2023, the studio was expected to launch the shooter in November. However, the console versions failed to pass certification which led to further complications with its release.

The studio then promised that both XDefiant and Skull and Bones would launch before the end of its financial year which ends on 31 March. Skull and Bones made its debut last week, you can read my full review of the game here.

So now where in the world is XDefiant? Well, it seems the game might be closer to release than expected. The official Ubisoft rewards for the game were spotted online which include a Midnight Velocity weapon camp, a battle pass tier skip token, a battle pass XP boost and a weapon XP boost.

If you’re unfamiliar with Ubisoft Connect Rewards, they are rewards given out to players across Ubisoft titles. They include cosmetic items, currencies and other content. Players can spend the currency they earn for playing all Ubisoft games on these items.

Usually, these rewards are available for Ubisoft games before launch so the fact that Ubisoft has listed them for XDefiant might be a good sign. At launch, players can then use their units to purchase the items for the game.

Keep in mind that we still don’t know exactly when XDefiant is set to launch. However, given the recent promise of 31 March, we might see its shadow drop within the next few weeks. It is about time I say.

XDefiant is set to launch for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
