announces Trion's TV tie-in MMOFPS is going
free-to-play as of June 4th. They outline what they are giving to owners of
boxed copies of the game to compensate for the purchase, and the following F2P
Today we’re excited to announce that Trion Worlds’ post-apocalyptic
massively co-op online cyberwestern shooter will be adding a new descriptor to
its already meaty description: Defiance is going to become free-to-play.
Starting June 4 on PC and mid-July on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, players will
be able to download the Defiance client and experience the entire Bay Area
storyline, original end-game content, and future missions completely for free.
This may be cause for some concern from our current ark hunters, and that’s
understandable as we haven’t detailed how we’re going to treat you, our frontier
pioneers, like the wasteland kings and queens you are.
You’ll be glad to hear that all Defiance owners (existing badland adventurers
such as yourselves) will enjoy more of everything than the greenhorns emerging
from dropships and taking their first shaky footsteps in the Bay Area. You’ll
continue to enjoy more character slots, loadouts, ark keycode capacity, and
inventory slots than free-to-play accounts. For those looking to expand what
they already have, we’ll even be offering increases to these limits.
