'Defiance' Details Upcoming Free/Premium DLC Content

by Rainier on May 9, 2013 @ 6:16 p.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

Downloadable content is being executed with several components, including a free component, a paid component and a store update.

Set to provide fans with a flow of meaningful, exciting new content for the game, Defiance has its first major update coming soon.
