The first big XDefiant update since the online FPS' release in May has now landed on PS5, bringing with it a new faction themed around the Rainbow Six franchise, three more maps, another two modes, additional weapons, and Ranked Play.

All the new content is live now in-game, with the headline addition being the new GS Kommando faction. Inspired by the items you'd find in Siege, you can use shock wire, an Active Defense System that destroys enemy explosives, and finally, an ultimate ability that takes the form of a Flash Shield, which acts as mobile cover.

Three extra maps are part of Season 1, with the first available in-game now and the other two dropping later on. Today, you are able to play on Clubhouse — inspired by Rainbow Six: Siege — then Daytona (The Crew 2) and Rockefeller (The Division) arrive in the coming months. You can take them for a spin in two new modes: Capture the Flag and Bomb.

Finally, a Ranked Play option is now live on the main menu, which pits two teams of four against one another across the Occupy, Domination, Zone Control and Escort game modes. You can work through seven ranks, each of which is broken up into 10 levels. You'll source exclusive rewards from Ranked Play, which presumably improve in quality the higher your rank is. The overall ranks are Bronze, Silver, Gold, Ruby, Emerald, Diamond, and Legends.
