With the release of new FPS games, players always wonder if there is a Crossplay feature, and XDefiant is no different. After some issues and delays, the brand-new shooter from Ubisoft is finally on the horizon. XDefiant is shaping up to be a fast-paced arena shooter with intense and exciting multiplayer. Moreover, the game is coming out on multiple platforms, meaning that Crossplay would feel right at home here. So let’s find out does XDefiant have Crossplay so players across platforms can enjoy the game together.

Does XDefiant have Crossplay?

Yes, XDefiant will have a Crossplay feature across all release platforms on day one. This means that no matter the platform you are using, you can play with your friends that use different platforms. This is great news, and will most certainly allow for the game to thrive and grow its player base on multiple platforms.
