Ubisoft presented a few hours ago Tom Clancy’s XDefiant, the rumored BattleCat, a free multiplayer first person shooter to offer cross-play 6v6 faction battles; be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, Ubisoft Connect, Amazon Luna and Google Stadia, with testing in winter. As the main claim we have the characters inspired by three licenses of Tom Clancy: Splinter Cell, The Division Y Ghost Recon, but this has not served to receive the support of the fans, quite the contrary.
The players have shown their dissatisfaction with the negative votes on YouTube channels, and so for example the general channel of Ubisoft has received 5284 “I do not like” compared to 3745 positive votes, and in the North American version 9960 negative votes exceed 7372 positive. We don’t know if players are not satisfied with what they saw on their debut or are simply disappointed with an ad that promises “a new Tom Clancy”, something that had given hope to see Sam Fisher’s next adventure in Splinter Cell.
Each faction will be specialized in a style of play
Initially we will have factions like the Wolves (Tom Clancys Ghost Recon), Echelon (Tom Clancys Splinter Cell) and the Outcasts and the Cleaners (Tom Clancys The Division), fighting in the most emblematic stages of these universes. But they will not be the only ones, Ubisoft assures that new Defiants will be added as the game evolves, always resorting to characters and skills related to each game.
For example, the leaks spoke of the Echelons as the best prepared for stealth, while the Wolves would have additional protection, and the characters of The Division They would have more facilities to collaborate in the healing of companions. We will find competitive modes such as Team Deathmatch or Domination, and also linear such as Escort. In this way, Ubisoft ensures that the game “offers players a playable experience of the highest level, combining visceral, fluid combat with unprecedented freedom and customization. “
