XDefiant Launch UK Time

21 June 2023


Published: 21st June 9:18AM

The anticipated first-person shooter game, XDefiant from Ubisoft, is all set for its second beta round this week. However, only those who took part in the earlier closed beta will be allowed to preload and play ahead of the official XDefiant launch time in the UK, set for tomorrow.

XDefiant Closed Beta

The inaugural XDefiant beta, which was closed, ran from the 13th to 24th of April. It was exceedingly successful, pulling in a striking one million players in its first week alone. But success brought its own challenges, primarily server stability issues. This led to calls by the game’s Executive Producer, Mark Rubin, to potentially extend the beta to compensate for the troubled XDefiant servers.

Consequently, a few additional days were granted for gameplay, providing Mirror Gaming editor and avid Warzone player, Nathan Bliss, an opportunity to provide his impressions on the XDefiant closed beta. This also allowed him to assess whether Ubisoft’s shooter has what it takes to dethrone Call of Duty. But not everyone had the chance to try the game out; luckily, the upcoming XDefiant open beta provides this opportunity. Regrettably, like the previous beta, it’s only available to PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X users, leaving PS4 and Xbox One users out.

Preloading The XDefiant Open Beta

Your approach to preloading the game will vary based on whether you’ve participated in an XDefiant beta before and the platform you’re using. If you were in the XDefiant closed beta, you can preload and begin playing from Tuesday, June 20. Others will have to wait until the official XDefiant launch time in the UK on Wednesday, June 21, to download and start playing.

Preloading The XDefiant Open Beta on PS5

For PS5 users looking to preload the XDefiant beta, you simply need to update the game or reinstall it from your PlayStation library.

Preloading The XDefiant Open Beta on XBOX Series X|S

Xbox Series X players, much like PlayStation users, looking to preload XDefiant, have a singular option; instead of updating the existing version in your library, you’ll need to download a new application: Uninstall XDefiant closed beta and then Install XDefiant Open Session.

XDefiant Launch Time UK

The XDefiant open beta for those not part of the closed beta begins on Wednesday, June 21 at 6pm BST / 1pm EDT / 10am PDT. It will run until Friday, June 23 at 11pm PDT, which is 7am BST / 2am EDT on Saturday, June 24.

How big is the XDefiant Open Beta?

According to Twitter user PlayStation Game Size, the XDefiant Open Beta will be around 58GB, You can Expect the XDefiant download to be the same size on the XBOX platforms, too. How long will it take to download 58GB? Use our handy Download Speed calculator.
