XDefiant Preseason Patch 1 Notes May 24

 

Game Modes

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

 

Devices

  • 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. 

 

Netcode

  • 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. 

 

Localization

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

 

Miscellaneous

  • 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.

 

 

Preseason Patch Notes May 20

Read below for our Preseason launch day patch notes!

 

Gameplay

 

FACTIONS

  • The Echelon faction is back. We fixed the issue with agents turning invisible in a bad way versus the good and intended way (using the Digital Ghillie Suit ability).
  • DedSec's Spiderbot ability has returned. Prepare your face for hugging.

 

DEVICES

  • Devices (aka grenades) are less likely to fall at your feet if used immediately after respawning, but it can still happen. We're working on it! Grenades are inherently risky.

 

Netcode

  • Occasionally after you died, you could still run around in the world for a few seconds. Now when you die you stay fully dead, as your opponent intended.
  • Reduced the range between the highest ping and lowest ping in matchmaking, so now you'll be grouped with players who have a more similar ping to your own.

 

Audio

  • Fixed an issue with killstreak VO lines playing at the beginning of every match and when you died, which was particularly insulting. Turn the announcer volume back up in the Settings menu (Dialogue Volume)!
  • Audio improvements, many.

 

Social

  • Xbox Series X/S players now see their Xbox friends list as the primary friends list in game.
  • Fixed an Xbox-specific issue where if you suspended the game, then accessed the in-game Social menu and selected "Invite to Party" or "View Party Invites", Ubisoft Connect wouldn't open properly.
  • Fixed an issue on Xbox where if you got an error message while trying to join a full party, key UI elements would disappear.

 

Localization

  • On consoles, if you accessed the Ubisoft Connect overlay via the Social menu, the text wasn't localized for any non-English languages. It is now.

 

Miscellaneous

  • Fixed a crash that could occur when accessing the Loadout menu tab.
  • Updated the word list the Chat Language Filter uses.
  • Fixed issues with misaligned HUD elements on PlayStation 5.
