Since launch, XDefiant has been a really fun multiplayer experience. We are currently in pre-season with Season 1 expected to start fairly soon, and it will be interesting to see what new elements Ubisoft add. It’s possible Season 1 will be addressed at Ubisoft Forward 2024, and XDefiant players can get a free skin by just watching the event live for less than an hour.

There is stuff to look forward to with XDefiant. Ubisoft has confirmed when bunny hopping and snipers will be nerfed, and, as mentioned, the expected release date for Season 1 is fairly imminent. As for the rest of the game’s first year, a leaker claims we are getting themed seasons involving Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry.

While all of the above is exciting, tomorrow you will want to make sure to tune into Ubisoft Forward 2024 live so you do not miss out on a free weapon skin.
