Defiance 2050 Next Month; Open Beta Next Week

Trion Worlds announces a July 10th release date for Defiance 2050, the reworked version of their free-to-play MMO shooter for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. They also reveal plans for open beta testing of the game which will run for three days beginning on June 22nd. This blog post has more on that and details on founder's packs. Here's the plan:

The original Defiance revolutionized the sci-fi open-world shooter, seamlessly blending third-person gunplay, fast-paced action, dynamic world events, and cooperative gameplay. In the Defiance universe players take on the role of Ark Hunters, mercenaries battling their way across the post-apocalyptic landscapes of a ruined earth, using alien tech and advanced weaponry to carve out their fortune.

Defiance 2050 is the definitive Defiance experience, focused on bringing the game into the next generation. In addition to taking advantage of modern hardware to improve the original game’s visuals, Defiance 2050 also makes major updates to Defiance’s systems, streamlining and modernizing them for today’s shooter audience.

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.

I bought into the game right towards the end of the show (that I didn't really watch that much) and enjoyed it quite a bit.

I knew it was over though when there would be an arkfall and no one else shown up for it but myself

I liked Defiance the game quite a bit. It was as described below--pretty good to really good but lacked a longterm hook.

Agreed, I pretty much played it in sync with the show's season. And dropped it once the show stopped for a season. Shooters aren't really my thing, but for some reason I really enjoy mmo shooters in short bursts and Defiance scratched that itch well at the times I played it.

It started to suffer though from Trion's typical over the top attempts at monetization though near the end of the TV show run as I recall.

The original Defiance revolutionized open world sci-fi shooters? IN what alternate dimension was that?

I thought the TV show was alright, never played the game though.

The game was a lot like the show. Acceptable to pretty good, nothing great, nothing terrible. I tried out the last incarnation for awhile, didn't end up putting a lot of time into it, and uninstalled.

There were plenty of better games out there, and I've played worse, but nothing really grabbed me in Defiance to make me keep playing.

Well put. That's how I feel exactly. I really wanted to like the game, and while not being a bad game at all, it just never took hold. I'm interested in how this new version will be.
