Ubisoft is giving XDefiant a big push for its full release. Not only is this a completely free shooter with full cross-platform support, but the team is dishing out free rewards for anyone who tunes in to Twitch streams of the game over the next six weeks. That’s a lot of potential rewards, but you need to know what streams to tune into and how you can claim those drops. We’ll also give you a rundown of each reward you can get week by week to make sure you don’t miss out on your next favorite gun skin.

How to redeem XDefiant Twitch drops

Starting at 9 a.m. PT on May 21, Ubisoft will begin hosting the first XDefiant stream called the All-Star Series. After this initial stream, rewards will be given out each week on any XDefiant stream you decide to watch.

You can earn three rewards every week for the first six weeks of XDefiant‘s launch. The first unlocks after watching for 30 minutes, the second after 1 hour, and the final reward for 1 hour and 30 minutes of total watch time that week. To redeem the rewards, you need to first make sure your Twitch account is linked to your Ubisoft account.

After earning a drop, it will appear in your Twitch inventory, so all you need to do is open it up and claim it to send it over to your XDefiant account.

Note that you do not need to watch that entire duration of time in a single stream. As long as your total XDefiant watch time on Twitch hits any of the three thresholds before the week is up, you can earn the corresponding drop.

State of Decay 3: release date speculation, trailer, news, and more
A massive undead creature blocks the path of survivors in State of Decay 3,

While the world's zombie obsession isn't as prevalent as it was a few years ago, we're still set to see some serious undead action in the future. Undead Labs has a third entry in its State of Decay series in the works that will surely pit an eclectic cast of survivors against hordes of wandering undead as they try to rebuild in a brutal world. Each entry of the series so far has included action-adventure, survival-horror, stealth, role-playing, and strategy elements, blending genres into an interesting civilization-rebuilding, zombie-decapitating experience.

We still don't have a lot of details on what State of Decay 3 gameplay will look like, but we have a couple of fantastic trailers released. It's definitely one of our most anticipated upcoming Xbox Series X games. Here's everything we know about State of Decay 3 right now.

When it comes to DLC, FromSoftware likes to make it a bit of a challenge to actually find the new content. Dark Souls was notorious for how cryptic it was to get to its DLC, but thankfully*, Elden Ring* doesn't make things quite so hard.

Still, if you're preparing to play Shadow of the Erdtree and want to see the new zone, fight new bosses, and get new weapons right away, you probably don't want to spend hours scouring the massive map looking for the entrance. There are two steps you need to make sure you complete before you can access the Shadow of the Erdtree content, but after that, it's smooth sailing. Here's what you should complete in the base game before the DLC launches.
