XDefiant: When Is the Game Coming Out?

No, there are certainly not enough shooter games out there. Shooter games are like gambling opportunities: the more you have, the better. That’s especially available when we’re talking about free shooter games such as the upcoming XDefiant.

XDefiant is a forthcoming free-to-play arena shooter that was supposed to come out in the summer of 2023, but many gamers became disappointed. We’re in 2024, and the game still hasn’t arrived, although we have plenty of information about what to expect. The in-game footage also looks very exciting for anyone who’s into shooter games.

XDefiant could be coming soon

There is some evidence that we can expect for XDefiant to launch pretty soon. A recent update from Mark Rubin, the Executive Producer, gives players reasons to be optimistic, suggesting that the prolonged wait may soon come to an end.

Ever since the Beta launch of the game that took place back in June 2023, XDefiant has generated a lot of anticipation. However, details about the official release date have been scant, as the development team has been providing minimal updates. Initially slated for a Summer 2023 release, the game’s launch was postponed to Q4 2023. As for now, the actual release date remains uncertain, but let’s not lose hope!.

Here’s the statement of Mark Rubin, as Esports Illustrated quotes:

The team is getting back into office this week and we are ready for a great year! We will have some more specific news in the next couple of weeks as we get ready for launch. But the quick update on our progress is: 1) We have addressed the weird issues that were affecting Netcode and we will continue to improve and test our netcode before and after launch, and 2) we’ve implemented the new Party System and are now just putting it through rigorous testing and bug fixing as we get ready for launch. I also want to give a shout out to those team members who worked through the holidays. Much of our team is working on future content but many of those that are working on getting the game ready to ship did put in some hours over the holidays and I want to recognize their dedication. We try very hard to not be a crunch studio as we care about our people and their families. The whole team is very dedicated to XDefiant and we are super excited to launch this game!

The guys from Ubisoft didn’t hesitate to publish footage of the upcoming game, even though the title is not ready yet for release. It’s interesting to see how the upcoming game will compete against titles such as Apex Legends, Counter-Strike 2, PUBG, Call of Duty: Warzone, and other exciting shooters that dominate the market today. Ubisoft is known as a highly respectable gaming company, as it is responsible for developing highly immersive and popular titles such as Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Far Cry 3, Assassin’s Creed, and many others.

In other words, we can definitely expect Ubisoft to do an amazing job with XDefiant as well.

Far Cry 7: New Details About the Game’s Story Surface Online

If you miss maneuvering around a character in a desolate place that’s teeming with mercenaries and monsters, well, it may help to know that Far Cry 7 is under development. Ubisoft is working on it, and the fall of 2025 represents the highly plausible release window of the highly-anticipated game.

Far Cry 7, or Project Blackbird, depending on how you wish to call it, will be built on the Snowdrop engine. Thanks to Insider Gaming, we can now learn a bit about the future game’s story. At this point, it all sounds pretty interesting, so let’s cut to the chase!

“Far Cry 7: Rise” will take place on the Kimsan island

The source mentioned above reveals that the next game of the Far Cry series will be called ‘Far Cry 7: Rise,’ and it will be set in a fictitious tropical island known as Kimsan, which will be placed in the “Yellow Sea next to Korea.”

The story in the next Far Cry game will be centered around the attempt to save the player’s kidnapped family. “Sons of Truth” represents the conspiracy group responsible for kidnapping a wealthy family in the game, and therefore, justice must be done.

During the campaign of the game, the player needs to save the entire family before time runs out.

Far Cry 7 will come out in the same year as GTA 6, which is another huge reason to get as ready for 2025 as possible if you’re a true gamer. In other words, you may consider buying a new next-gen console or upgrade your computer. However, at least for its first months after launch, GTA 6 won’t be available for PCs.

GTA 6: What We Know About Lucia, the First Female Protagonist in Grand Theft Auto History

After an endless amount of speculation and rumors, we now know for sure that GTA 6 is coming out in 2025 due to the first official trailer of the highly anticipated game. In just a few short days, the GTA 6 trailer has been watched by netizens from across the world more times than the first trailer for the previous game, GTA 5, in all its existence of 12 years. In other words, there’s absolutely no exaggeration to say that GTA 6 is indeed the most anticipated game in history.

One of the reasons why Grand Theft Auto fans wait for the launch of GTA 6 is that the upcoming game will be the first in the beloved series to have a woman as a protagonist. Until now, we had only guys as GTA protagonists, and GTA 5 was the first and only game of the series so far that introduced more than one protagonist. We had Trevor, Michael, and Franklin as the protagonists of the latest GTA game.

As for GTA 6, Lucia and her boyfriend are the game’s protagonists. We don’t know the guy’s name so far, but we can still speculate a lot about Lucia, who seems to be a Latin-American badass girl who’s always ready to settle the score the hard way.

Who is Lucia in GTA 6?

We can see Lucia in the GTA 6 trailer appearing as she meets with a parole officer. When she is asked why she thinks she’s there, the girl gives a very badass statement: “Bad luck, I guess.”

Lucia and her boyfriend often like to get into trouble, and they seem very devoted to one another. It’s clear that their relationship is also romantic, while their main hobby is running away from the police after they do some very bad deeds.

Lucia is clearly the first female protagonist in GTA history, and that can’t possibly upset anyone. She seems to have the right badass attitude to go for heavy crimes across the streets of Vice City (fictional Miami).

There’s no more to learn at this point about Lucia and the other protagonist of the long-awaited game. However, we can expect both of them to be Mexicans, judging by their skin tone.

GTA 6: a console-exclusive game?

At this point, we know that GTA 6 won’t be available for the PC at launch, but that could change in the future. The game will most probably work only for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles, but it could follow suit in the case of GTA 5, the previous game, which was adapted for PC two years after its initial release for consoles.

The appearance of a female protagonist in GTA 6 has been heavily rumored and speculated until the official trailer of the game confirmed the hunch. It was nice to see that it’s indeed true, and a badass woman will be in the future game. Also, we’re happy to see that the rumors about a return to Vice City (fictional Miami) were also true, as GTA 6 will recreate the map of one of the most iconic video games ever made: GTA Vice City, which came out in 2002. Of course, the improved map will be much more diversified this time and adapted to the current gaming standards.

All we can do at this point is wait for Rockstar to tell us more about the identity of the GTA 6 protagonists, as there’s a lot more to learn.

The GTA 6 trailer was released sooner than expected because official footage leaks have already been published online. This led Rockstar to decide to show the trailer to the world, and so far, it has gathered an astronomical amount of more than 143 million views in just one week after its release.

GTA 6’s Official Trailer Gets More Views in a Few Days Than the GTA 5 Trailer Did in 12 Years

GTA 6 is coming out in 2025, and we finally know that for sure, thanks to the first official trailer of the highly-anticipated game that was launched a few days ago. We have a lot of information about GTA 6 already without having to dive into speculations, rumors, and farfetched possibilities.

We’re less than a week away since Rockstar Games finally published the official trailer for GTA 6, and the video has already been viewed more than one of the trailers for GTA 5 in 12 years. That’s right, dear ladies and gents, you’ve read that correctly! That’s probably the best confirmation we can possibly get that GTA 6 is indeed the most anticipated game in history.

GTA 6’s trailer gathers over 140M views in less than a week

The official GTA 6 trailer has already gathered an insane number of views in only less than a week after its release: 140 million. This is especially amazing considering that one of the first trailers for GTA 5, the predecessor of GTA 6, has been viewed more than 104 million times. But don’t forget the fact that the GTA 5 trailer is 12 years old! Isn’t that mind-boggling?

Behold the absolute proof:

The details in GTA 6 look as if they’re from another world, indicating that the game will raise the stakes a lot more compared to its predecessor, GTA 5. Lucia and her boyfriend, the protagonists of the highly-anticipated game, will have a lot of work to do.

A return to Vice City

GTA 6 marks a return to Vice City (fictional Miami), and it’s nice to see that the rumors were true after all. The future game will have the task of showcasing a more actual version of Vice City, where the world is teeming with social media, celebrities aiming to get more fans, crazy stunts, and more. The iconic GTA Vice City game, which came out more than two decades ago, proposes a world from the ’80s, and that title still got a lot of attention and love from the fans. It’s pretty much impossible to find a gamer who has never played GTA Vice City.

Rockstar is known for recreating maps in its Grand Theft Auto games, which means that the return to Vice City shouldn’t surprise any of us. They’ve done it with GTA 5 when they’ve recreated the map of Los Santos from GTA San Andreas. Nobody has complained about that, as Rockstar did a fantastic job, considering that GTA 5 remains in the top 3 best-selling games in history.

Let’s also not forget that GTA 4, which came out in 2008, has proposed a journey throughout Liberty City (fictional New York) for the players. That’s the same map that was present in the previous game, GTA 3, which came out in 2001. However, the map was drastically improved in GTA 4, not to mention that the graphics were light-years better. Did anybody complain about Liberty City existing in both GTA 4 and GTA 3? No! In fact, GTA 4 remains one of Rockstar’s most popular games of all time, and a significant amount of Grand Theft Auto fans even consider it better than its successor, GTA 5. GTA 4 has plenty of unique gameplay elements that we cannot see in GTA 5 or in any other game of the Grand Theft Auto series.

GTA 6 will be available for consoles at first, while a PC release might come later. If we look at the history of the series, we can see that GTA 5, the previous game, was adapted for the PC two years after its initial release for consoles. Therefore, we can expect something similar to happen with GTA 6 as well, but only time will tell for sure.
