How to Access the XDefiant Beta
Ubisoft has promised a whole new, action-packed first-person shooter called XDefiant for 2021. The game’s stated goal is to become a worthy competitor to Call of Duty. There isn’t a firm release date set yet, but you can play it now if you want to try it out.
Here, we’ll explain how to participate in the XDefiant beta so you can judge for yourself if this new game has what it takes to challenge Call of Duty.
It’s rather simple to gain entry to the staggered XDefiant test phases that have been discussed. Here’s some good news if you’re curious about how to play the XDefiant beta: you can do so in just a few easy steps:
- Navigate to the Ubisoft XDefiant beta platform
- ‘Check your Status’
- Use your Ubisoft credentials to log in
- Select your platform of choice for the XDefiant beta
- Check your emails periodically for an XDefiant beta code
It really is that simple, however, keep in mind that even if you follow these instructions to the letter, Ubisoft may still not provide you a code for the XDefiant beta. But that’s hardly the end of the world either. Tuning in to producers broadcasting the XDefiant beta on Twitch is another easy way to learn the ropes.
In most cases, XDefiant beta periods coincide with drops campaigns on Twitch, so if you watch a streamer playing the game live on Twitch (with drops enabled), you might be able to get your hands on a beta key in about half an hour.
In addition, the longer you watch, the more of the game you may be able to access.
How Do I Play XDefiant, Though?
Now that you know how to get a code for the XDefiant beta, the question is how to play the game. Fortunately, that’s also a straightforward operation. Simply power on your PlayStation 5, Xbox X|S, or computer, and follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the beta software.
After that, all you have to do is enter the beta code you were given and you’ll have access to the entire game.
A total of fourteen maps, four game modes, four factions (all based on Ubisoft properties), and twenty-four weaponry are at your disposal. And that’s only the test version!
