Defiance Season Pass

Trion Worlds announces a season pass program for Defiance, their upcoming MMOG that ties in with the TV series of the same name. Here's what's offered by this counter-demo which allows you to pay for content before trying the game:

Trion Worlds has unveiled some details about the action packed Season Pass for the highly anticipated online open-world shooter Defiance™. Players who want to save big on the first 5 DLC packs rolling out after launch can now pre-purchase the Defiance Season Pass for $39.99USD, a 20% savings. Gamers will get a massive amount of content including a new playable alien species, new weapons and vehicles, missions, and rewards, plus two bonus items, an exclusive digital Hellbug combat cap and a Lock Box. The Defiance Season Pass is the ultimate content package for the true Ark Hunter!

The Defiance Season Pass can be purchased for $39.99 (PlayStation®Network) / 3200 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE) / $39.99 (PC). Once purchased, the content packs will be automatically available as they go live.

Defiance, which delivers massive co-op boss battles and fierce multiplayer action in an evolving sci-fi universe, is scheduled to launch globally on April 2, 2013. It will be available on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC.

Isn't this the game that's supposed to "tie in" with the tv show? I've read that some of the actual player created characters could possibly make it into the show? I've been trying to wrap my brain around this concept and I can imagine that this is probably total bullshit.....but... Could someone here explain how the game and the tv show are supposed to work together? It confuses me...then again, I get easily distracted by shiny objects so explaining this to me is probably a mute point

Yep, which is exactly why i'm a wait and see on both

The MMO might survive when it goes F2P but the TV show will definitely get canned as who else would watch the show besides Defiance players. anyway it will have a small number of viewers either way and for Syfy that is a fail.

Tried the alpha and it sucked. The show looks equally as bad. Both are bound to fail hard.

lol judging a game on an alpha. Clown

Well, it's pretty obvious, much like yourself. Both failures.

lol keep telling yourself that libtard.

Well I wouldn't go so far and say the game is going to fail hard, as I've enjoyed my time in Alpha... well sort of, it gave me a diversion from GW2 for a while.

However, the game is very shallow, all about loot, shooting stuff, no crafting with very limited moding of weapons. If there were more sandbox features, then sure, I would give it more of a chance. However, I wouldn't be putting any money into this game until 6 months after release.

Yea, Creston hit the nail on the head. I'm in Alpha and I am VERY reluctant to pay for a pre-order. I would give this game at least 6 months minimum before I would seriously consider paying for it.

Yeah, that certainly could happen. They are following the Guild Wars / Guild Wars 2 model where you pay (a lot!) for the base game but after that there is no subscription fee. Just.. lots of paid for DLC, apparently.

I've been playing the beta and it's pretty fun. I like the atmosphere and the gameplay style is similar to, say, Global Agenda, but with more satisfying combat.

Is that enough for them to turn a profit, and to keep the lights on long enough to deliver on all the DLC in the season pass? Who can say, but I certainly hope so.

Goddamn. 256 already...guess between this and that 3d printing pen, that questions the whole "kickstarter bubble" theory.

Already donated. Cannot wait. A sequel to the best written RPG by far? Count me in!
