XDefiant patch notes: Y1S0.2

Here are the full patch notes for Y1S0.2.


  • While in a party, we now display the most restrictive Crossplay setting among the party members, as it applies to the whole party. Also fixed an issue where party members with differing Crossplay settings couldn’t matchmake
  • Fixed an issue with displaying incorrect player names on some Social screens
  • Fixed a crash caused by spamming open/close View Party Invites, but who would even do that, calm down
  • On consoles, Ubisoft Connect party invites could display as if they were coming from Xbox or PlayStation Network friends. Fixed that, along with some other weird invite-related things
