'Defiance 2050' (ALL) Multi-platform Closed Beta Test Coming In April - Screens

by Rainier on March 22, 2018 @ 8:11 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.


Trion Worlds is excited to formally reveal the dates for the upcoming closed beta test for Defiance 2050, its open-world sci-fi shooter launching this summer on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The test will run in April across all three platforms. The PlayStation 4 closed beta test will only be available in North America for this event.

The Defiance 2050 closed beta test will run the weekend of April 20 - 22. In the beta, players will be able to play through the Defiance 2050 experience up to level 25, as well as explore the areas of Mount Tam and Madera. The closed beta will offer up exciting story-based missions as well as give players a taste of the large-scale epic battles that they can expect when Defiance 2050 launches later this summer.

“Getting players into the game as soon as possible is hugely important for us,” said Matt Pettit, producer of Defiance 2050. “We are creating Defiance 2050 with player feedback in mind, so this beta test is going to be essential for getting information from Defiance fans on where they would like to see us improve and where they’d like to us take the game.”

Interested fans can get more information on the game and sign up for the upcoming closed beta.

Defiance 2050 will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC summer 2018.
