XDefiant Preseason Update Patch Notes (24 May)

xdefiant preseason update patch notes (24 may)

One of the primary focuses of this update is to resolve numerous bugs that have been plaguing the game since its launch. Players were encountering issues such as spawning outside the world in the Practice Zone, devices dropping at their feet instead of being thrown, and incorrect health bar displays for enemies.

The update also includes fixes for localization issues, ensuring that end-of-match UI text is displayed correctly in languages like Arabic.

Here’s the complete XDefiant Preseason update (24 May 2024) patch notes:

Game Modes 

  • Sometimes players loading into the Practice Zone would spawn outside the world, in a hellscape, and now they (probably) will not. 


  • Fixed an issue where if the player died during the device deployment animation, their next deployed device would drop at their feet rather than be thrown as intended. 


  • That issue where you’d get hitmarkers on an enemy as they killed you, but their health bar still appeared full to you? The health bar display was wrong – you did damage them. Should be fixed now. 


  • Fixed an issue where end-of-match UI text would display with the wrong orientation in Arabic. 


  • We’ve turned the Practice Zone back on but it’s possible weird things could still happen. 
  • Fixed an issue that was causing low framerates with some AMD GPUs.


With this update, Ubisoft demonstrates its commitment to improving the XDefiant experience for players. By addressing various bugs, performance issues, and adding the much-anticipated Practice Zone, the developers aim to deliver a more polished and enjoyable gaming experience during the Preseason.
