What Are Factions in Tom Clancy’s XDefiant? Every Confirmed Faction

Find out what Factions are in the upcoming arenashooter Tom Clancy’s XDefiant.

Ubisoft has just announced the upcoming arena-shooter based in the Tom Clancy Universe called XDefiant. FPS fans will be used to fast-paced gunplay and personalized loadouts, but one part of the game that is puzzling gamers is the Factions System.

While XDefiant is a totally new series, long-time fans of the Tom Clancy games will recognize many of the game’s Factions. Instead of having classes like other games, Factions will determine what role you play on your team in XDefiant.
