XDefiant: Do You Need PS Plus Or Xbox Game Pass?

If you’re wondering whether you’ll need PS Plus or Xbox Game Pass Core to play XDefiant, worry no more. Here’s what you need to know.

A lot of online games require a subscription in order to play them. For example, Helldivers 2 needs a PlayStation Plus subscription on PS5, otherwise you’re locked out of the entire game. So, it’s no surprise that XDefiant fans are wondering whether they’ll need a subscription in order to access it. Fortunately, that isn’t the case.

Do You Need PS Plus or Xbox Game Pass to Play XDefiant?

No, you do not need an active PlayStation Plus subscription on PS5 or an active Xbox Game Pass Core subscription on Xbox Series X/S to play XDefiant. It is a completely free to play game, and while you do need a constant internet connection, you won’t need a subscription in order to play it.

This is, fortunately, the case with most of Ubisoft’s multiplayer offerings, including The Division and The Division 2, despite not being free-to-play. Both of those games allow you to play without a subscription so long as you play solo. However, XDefiant will let you play multiplayer without a subscription. So, you don’t need to worry about that.

So, you won’t have to worry about forking over any money, outside of microtransactions in order to play XDefiant. It is 100% free-to-play, much like Overwatch 2. That’s everything you need to know about whether XDefiant requires PS Plus or Xbox Game Pass Core. For more guides just like this one, be sure to check out our Guide Hub.
