Growing Insider Sessions
We started the Insider Sessions to let players test and give us weekly feedback on in-progress features of our game. It was something very new for us, but after just 3 weeks we are very excited by the results and ready to expand the program. A new wave of invites will go out in the coming days, so make sure you check your email or register on our website for a chance to participate. All players, including those who been previously invited, will have to resign the NDA and will receive a new e-mail to confirm their participation.
Our goal is to give players the best competitive arena shooter possible. Unsurprisingly, hands-on player feedback is the most valuable insight for our team to build an experience that's tailored to the player. Keep in mind you are playing an early build that will include in-progress features and assets, this is by design to so we can get feedback as we build the game.
Updates to NDA Restrictions
With this expansion, we'll also be updating the NDA restrictions for participants. Players are now able and encouraged to talk about their experience playing XDefiant in the Insider Sessions. Streaming, in-game screenshots, or the sharing of any visuals from these sessions remains restricted.
We’re excited to continue evolving the game alongside you!
