Defiance 2050 Launches

Defiance 2050 is now officially live on Steam, offering this multiplayer shooter revival for Windows, with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 editions also available on their respective consoles. A headstart began for founders on Friday, but now is available to all as a free-to-play game. The announcement helps understand the changes since the original Defiance launched as a television tie-in:

Trion Worlds is excited to reveal that Defiance 2050, a reimagining of Trionís hit sci-fi online shooter Defiance, is launching today for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms. The updated game brings the experience to new consoles with updated visuals and gameplay enhancements, as well as all-new class and upgrade systems.

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 will become 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 while uniting with other alien races to take on common threats.

The definitive Defiance experience, Defiance 2050 is focused on bringing the game into the current generation. In addition to taking advantage of modern hardware to improve the original gameís visuals, Defiance 2050 also makes major updates to Defianceís gameplay systems, streamlining and modernizing them for todayís shooter audience.

While the game is free to play and download, players will be able to purchase launch packs for the game that will unlock additional classes and upgrades, as well as provide in-game currency. For more information on the available packs, please visit the official Defiance 2050 blog: http://www.trionworlds.com/defiance/en/?p=6654.

Defiance 2050 launches today for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For more information on Defiance 2050 please visit www.defiance2050.com, and for more information on Trion Worlds, please visit www.trionworlds.com.

It looks like a really cheap Destiny ripoff. So, instead of every MMORPG trying to rip on WOW, now they're going for Destiny. Wonderful. Just what everyone wanted.

It looks like that, but perhaps it could be more fun with more gear and content? The places where I feel Destiny lacks. To me it isn't always about the gfx. But this probably sucks there to, just saying, it could look lesser but still be better in overall gameplay.

The original Defiance game was actually entertaining to me, story was cohesive and tied in with the show as it was airing.

Destiny, you just sort of pop in and pop out of things through the game lobby (err Director) and spend half the time staring at your ship as a loading screen. Defiance at least had the standard mmo feel to it.

Haven't tried this yet, and have no time or desire to really though especially given initial reviews.

Trailer isn't doing enough for me... But I enjoyed the show... Like any fresh game (re-release or not), I'll give it a month or three for some shit to be ironed out, and then maybe try it... Though I'll likely still be obsessed with WoW at the time..

"new consoles"

The Xbone and the PS4 launched 5 years ago and the PS5 is in the nearish future.

This game first launched in early 2013.

As a big fan of the original Defiance, I gave this a shot--it's simply a money-grab re-release.
