Will there be a XDefiant battle pass?

Yes, a battle pass has been confirmed for XDefiant Season 1. It will have 90 tiers to grind through, with each tier giving you rewards. We aren’t sure what the rewards are quite yet but most likely they’ll be cosmetics like skins and other in-game things to show off.

Developers have not said anything yet, however, so we can’t know quite yet when ranked is arriving. Other new game modes are also coming, according to Ubisoft, but have not been confirmed for Season 1.
