XDefiant hopes to reinvigorate the FPS genre, but there are many games like it that came before that you should give a try.

XDefiant is a free-to-play first-person shooter from Ubisoft. It is clearly influenced by a multitude of titles in the genre, which is typically how FPS game goes. If you like XDefiant, then there are other games you may enjoy.

Never hold yourself down to just one game. XDefiant fans, the following are others you might like or even be good at if you give it a try.

5 games to play if you enjoy XDefiant

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Many have called XDefiant Ubisoft's answer to the Call of Duty franchise. The similarities are absolutely there. With plenty of weapon attachments and other customization options, along with the variety of game modes and map, it is easy to compare the two.

A lot of Call of Duty players may swap back and forth between a game like XDefiant. It makes perfect sense, and if you are one of them, you might have an easy time with that switch. Most of you have probably already played MW3, so this is a no-brainer.

Overwatch 2

The different game modes are absolutely what makes Overwatch 2 feel like a good counterpart to XDefiant. The class system is just a bonus. While there aren't specific heroes, there are Factions with their own special abilities and playstyles.

If you like the fast-paced action of XDefiant, then the Escort-style mode of Overwatch 2 will make you feel right at home. It has a much wider selection of characters to choose from, but the speed and gameplay are where it's at.

VALORANT

VALORANT isn't quite a game like XDefiant when you look at our first two entries, but it does the trick. There are loads of Agents for you to master, just like the Ubisoft first-person shooter has its multiple Factions.

It has a few different modes, but its main one is a bomb-site objective mode. It definitely isn't full of customization like XDefiant, though if you want a tactical FPS that will make you think before every move, VALORANT is it.

The Finals

The Finals has similar gameplay to XDefiant. You have gadgets to use, many weapons to choose, and speedy movement to take the fight to the opposition. The main modes of the two games are vastly different, however.

The Finals, though, does deliver limited-time modes that match up more with what XDefiant is all about. If you want to try another game like XDefiant, then The Finals is a wonderful alternative when one of their new modes is spotlighted by an event.

Rogue Company

Rogue Company had a die-hard fanbase when it first launched. And while it is a third-person shooter rather than first-person, it is a very fun game that is, in many ways, like XDefiant. The most obvious of which is the range of characters and abilities.

You have elimination modes, bomb-based game modes, hacking modes, and even a 2v2 Wingman mode. The game did not get the love it deserves, but if you are waiting for XDefiant to drop or if its servers are down, give Rogue Company its flowers.
