Ubisoft Considers Extending XDefiant Closed Beta Due to Server Issues

Ubisoft’s highly anticipated multiplayer shooter, XDefiant, has faced a rocky start during its closed beta testing phase. Executive Producer Mark Rubin took to Twitter to apologize for players’ horrible server experience. He suggested that the company consider extending the closed beta period, which ends on April 23rd.

The XDefiant closed beta, which started recently, has been plagued with technical issues, especially on the PlayStation 5 platform. Frustrated players have had to restart their games to get into matches, while others faced problems with progression. Ubisoft has been working on updates to address these concerns and even went as far as unlocking all players’ content to make up for the progression hiccups.

The free-to-download 6v6 first-person shooter XDefiant has been created with disgruntled Call of Duty multiplayer fans in mind, incorporating features that the rival game has abandoned in recent years, such as a classic mini-map, map voting and retaining lobbies between games.

If Ubisoft does decide to extend the XDefiant closed beta, it will provide more time for the development team to address the server issues and deliver a smoother experience for players. This would also give gamers more opportunities to try the game and offer valuable feedback before its official launch on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
