'Defiance 2050' (ALL) Trouble in Paradise Update Adds Halloween Content

by Rainier on Oct. 15, 2018 @ 8:51 a.m. PDT

Defiance 2050 is a completely from-the-ground-up recreation of Defiance that overhauls the story and gameplay of the original, reimagining the San Francisco-based sci-fi shooter experience for current gaming hardware.

Twenty years have passed since the catastrophic Arkfall event left millions of Votans dead and Earth terraformed into a nearly unrecognizable post-apocalyptic landscape. In Defiance 2050’s version of San Francisco, players are transported to a dynamic open world where they can explore and fight in skirmishes and story-driven missions on an epic scale. Players will engage in massive cooperative battles with their friends, utilize hundreds of distinct weapons and skills, and take on huge alien threats as they explore transformed futuristic environments.

Defiance 2050 recreates the original game from the ground up, offering an experience that is the definitive Defiance experience in every way. Today’s consoles and PCs enable the dev team to implement features and upgrades that fans of the game have been clamoring for. Advancements in hardware allow for action on an even larger scale than before, with more players able to take to the battlefield in white-knuckled combat.

More than just a simple graphical remaster, Defiance 2050 is a major update to the original game’s systems, which have been streamlined and modernized. Environments are bigger and better than ever, enemies are even more ruthless, and weaponry is more adaptable to the player’s style.


Greetings Ark Hunters,

We're bringing Defiance 2050 for the PS4 and PC offline for the Trouble in Paradise patch at 10AM PDT (5PM UTC) today.

Downtime may last up to 4 hours, but we'll bring each platform back online as it finishes. We'll have more info to share on the Xbox One release date for the patch as soon as possible.

Hulker Hell is a Halloween celebration of tricks and treats that brings a special delivery of frights to Paradise until November 5. Dive into the fray and take down these powerful enemies to unlock increasingly epic rewards. Teamwork makes the dream work for the revamped ark falls with rewards directly tied to the efficiency with which you mow through the hellish hordes.

On top of that, we’re also introducing a powerful new enemy faction to Defiance 2050, the Grid. These cybernetic EGO constructs possess devastating energy weaponry and a bad attitude.

With Trouble in Paradise, you’ll be able to play through all-new story missions to learn more about the Grid. We have an exclusive first look at the devastatingly vicious new addition to the Grid’s forces: Harvesters.

Trouble in Paradise also brings a brand-new weapon skin system that allows you to customize your weapons with spectacular new styles to suit the Halloween season. Pick up weapon skins by taking part in the Hulker Hell event or by picking them up in the store, with many more skins to come in future updates.

This massive update also brings the devastatingly powerful new Crusader class. This brutal brawler thrives on the frontlines of combat. Wield a massive two-handed hammer and an array of epic abilities to pound enemies into submission. Race headlong into enemies with the brutally bombastic Blitz ability or summon a meteor from orbit to slam down on foes caught in the point of impact. There has never been anything like this in Defiance 2050 before!

Defiance 2050: Trouble in Paradise will be live later today and we can’t wait to see you back in the New Frontier!

Starting on June 19, Xbox One and PC players will be able to pre-order one of three Defiance 2050 Founder’s Packs, that will unlock classes and upgrades, provide additional currency, and grant them access to the Head Start period, which begins on July 6th. Also starting on July 6th, PlayStation 4 players will be able to purchase the Defiance 2050 Founder’s Packs, granting them immediate access!

Defiance 2050 will release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on July 10.
