'Defiance' (ALL) Gets Halloween Update, New DLC Planned

by Rainier on Oct. 31, 2013 @ 8:51 a.m. PDT

In Defiance players are introduced to a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet ravaged by decades of conflict. The game combines the intense action of a shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic.

On a future Earth ravaged by aliens and 50 years of global war, a civilization emerges that rejects the old ways to forge a new destiny in a wild frontier. Can the connection between a lawman trying to keep his town safe and a new kind of gold rush in San Francisco hold the only hope for a better future?

The game combines the intense action of a “AAA” console shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart weaves the rich tapestry of the world into a series with the scope, characters, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic. Because they exist in a single universe, the show and the game will influence each other and evolve together over time, with actions in both mediums driving the overall story of  Defiance.

Trion Worlds announced that DLC2 for Defiance will be coming this winter.

As a Halloween treat for current players, today’s patch also sees the Plague Sieges and Plague Emergencies return. After the initial Plague Sieges Trion have now improved their pacing for their scoring to be better and give them the ability to expand over time. Player strategies can adapt now that charge blades and weapons have been added to the game. Further weapons such as spikes will be added to the second DLC also allowing techniques to develop when fighting the infected.
