Session Notes - May 27th

Remember that Insider Sessions is covered by NDA which prohibits the recording/capturing/sharing of XDefiant visually. Insider Sessions is in-progress content that we are still working on.


Welcome back to Insider Sessions! As a welcome back gift, we are adding a new faction to the Insider Sessions!


Introducing a brand-new faction to the game- Libertad!

Libertad is a powerful rebel faction that brings to the game the distinct advantage of being able to heal and help other teammates! These guerilla fighters are a faction we are extremely excited to work on and bring to the world of XDefiant.

While still effective with any weapon, Libertad can help keep your team alive as it fights for an objective.

This week the Libertad will have the following skills:

Espíritu de Libertad (Trait)

The contagious spirit of freedom slowly heals you and nearby allies.

BioVida Boost (Ability)

A fortifying wave boosts total health and regen for you and nearby allies.

Médico Supremo (Ultra)

The Médico backpack gives you and your teammates a big boost to health and healing for a limited time.

We are excited to see how the Libertad faction impacts the game. Please let us know your feedback this week after playing them. Keep in mind as always, the game is still very much WIP including their design and is not completely final. Additionally, as with some of our factions, this does not include all of their intended abilities.
