The release date for when the XDefiant open beta will come out and start is quickly approaching, and you must make sure to sign up if you wish to play and download on PS5, Xbox, and PC.
XDefiant is a brand new free-to-play online arena shooter from Ubisoft. There was a closed beta back in April, and many were impressed with some gamers arguing that it could be a Call of Duty killer.
While only very few gamers have been able to experience the upcoming FPS first-hand, in just a week everyone can give the game a go entirely for free.
When does the XDefiant open beta start?
The release date for when the XDefiant open beta will come out and start is June 21st.
This was announced at the recent Ubiforward event. It will only last until June 23rd/24th, meanwhile, the full release will come out sometime this summer.
It is coming to PlayStation, PC, and Xbox. However, on consoles, it is restricted to current-gen only meaning PS5 and Series X/S.
A specific release date for the full release will be shared after the upcoming open beta. When the game does come out, everybody will be greeted with a six-weeks long preseason.
