'Defiance 2050' (ALL) Gets Release Date, PC Open Beta Next Weekend

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.

Defiance 2050 will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on July 10.

Prior to launch, Trion Worlds will be hosting a open beta test on PC from June 22 through 25. Players will be able to access most of the classes available at launch, including the Assassin, Guardian, Combat Medic, and Assault classes, as well as the full suite of missions that will be available at launch.

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!
