XDefiant is a brand-new FPS from Ubisoft, and before jumping in, you might want to learn about the game's system requirements. If you're on PC, it's always a good idea to check to see how well you'll run a game before installing it, and I'm here to help with that.

Below you'll find the game's minimum and recommended settings on PC, as well as some recommendations for console settings if you're on Xbox or PlayStation.

XDefiant PC system requirements

Here are the minimum and recommended system requirements for XDefiant on PC:


  • Resolution: 1080p
  • CPU: Intel i3-10105F, AMD Ryzen 3 3100
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 1050ti (4GB), AMD RX 5500 XT (4GB)
  • RAM: 8GB
  • OS: Windows 10
  • Storage: 35GB


  • Resolution: 1080p
  • CPU: Intel i3-10105F, AMD Ryzen 3 3100
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 (6GB), AMD RX 5500 XT (8GB)
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: Windows 10
  • Storage: 35GB

The specifications required for each are actually pretty similar, with only higher RAM and a slightly better graphics card listed as requirements for the recommended option. That should mean the game will run on most PCs as long as you have enough RAM and a decent GPU and CPU.

If you're looking to play the game on console, here are some details about the game's graphics settings.

XDefiant should run well no matter what system you play it on, as it isn't a very demanding game as far as graphics go. You'll be able to play it on PS5 or Xbox Series X/S without much trouble.

You might want to consider turning off VSync if you're having trouble with any screen tearing. You can also edit the game's controller settings if you're playing on console to enhance your experience - I'd recommend testing different settings to see what feels best for you.
