Defiance Now Free-to-Play

Trion announces the Windows edition of Defiance has made its promised transition to a free-to-play game, just in time for the premiere of season two of the MMO shooter's tie-in television series on SyFy on June 19th (the console editions of the game are expected to go F2P on June 15th). Word is: "New players and returning vets alike will be able to battle through the entire Bay Area storyline, as well as the all-new new Stahma’s Interests story missions," and a new free-to-play launch trailer shows off some of this upcoming content. Here's word on how they will compensate those who paid for the game before this point:

Players who purchase a new box or digital copy of Defiance are granted the following bonuses:

  • A grant of 1,000 Arkforge, in-game currency redeemable for resetting weapon mastery, upgrading a weapon’s power rating or even bumping an uncommon weapon to epic rarity.
  • 4 Character Slots, 5 Loadouts, up to 75 Ark Keycodes and a minimum 70 Inventory Slots.
  • 30 days of Paradise Patron status

Paradise Patrons are granted:

  • Boosts to skill, XP, scrip, salvage and reputation gain rates that stack with the matching boosts available in the store.
  • 10% store-wide discount – boosts, costumes, lock boxes, all of it!
  • A grab bag of one-hour boosts or Arkforge from Daily and Weekly Ark Hunter Bonus Lock Boxes.
