Ubisoft is preparing for the launch of its free-to-play FPS title, XDefiant. In the wake of that, they are having a server test session to gather useful information to prepare for the global release.

The current server test and the game’s performance across all platforms will decide the final release date for the game.

The XDefiant server test session will begin on April 19 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET and last three days until April 21.

Thankfully, it is a public test available on all major platforms, including the PS5, Xbox Series X | S, and PC, which makes sense as it will mainly check whether the server can withstand the load. 

You can preload the XDefiant Server Test Session client on PC via Ubisoft Connect, PlayStation via the PS Store, and Xbox via the Microsoft Store.

Now, even if you had previously participated in an XDefiant beta, the old client from the last XDefiant play test will not work as, according to Ubisoft, “that is a different “product” just called XDefiant. Keep it as it will eventually be the final launch product.”
