  2. Play Defiance now and earn Valor rewards for Defiance 2050! Have questions? Check our FAQ. Defiance 2050 Valor Program Defiance 2050 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this summer, and we are introducing the Valor Program to show our appreciation to original Defiance players! With the Valor Program, players looking to continue the fight from Defiance to Defiance 2050 will have access to exclusive rewards. The Defiance 2050 Valor Program introduces a new currency called Valor Commendations that can be earned in original Defiance, adding a way to keep unique titles and specific account upgrades. Valor Commendations – Valor Commendations are a new currency in Defiance 2050 that can be used to unlock special cosmetics and character boosts. Defiance players will be able to earn Valor Commendations by completing Pursuits (Defiance’s version of achievements) in game. Unique Titles – Defiance players who have previously earned unique titles such as “Old School” will be able to transfer those titles over to Defiance 2050. Account Upgrades – Account based upgrades such as character or loadout slots will be transferable to Defiance 2050 through the Valor Program. Valor Commendations Let’s dig a little deeper into the Valor Commendations system. Valor Commendations can be earned by completing in-game Pursuits (achievements) or by making purchases in Defiance prior to the launch of Defiance 2050. All purchases in Defiance, including those made prior to the announce of Defiance 2050, will earn Valor Commendations. The amount of Valor Commendations awarded from Pursuits will be based on the EGO rating of the Pursuit. Any Pursuits that don’t currently have an EGO rating will have EGO added to them before Defiance 2050 launches, which means all Pursuits will provide Valor Commendations. The Defiance team is adding new Pursuits this Friday (March 9) with a new “Road to 2050” Pursuit category. For players who have the majority of the current Pursuits completed, we’ve got you covered with new ways to gain Valor Commendations! Hunt down and kill a variety of enemies to achieve more EGO and ultimately more Valor for Defiance 2050. In Defiance 2050, we plan to offer special cosmetics such as outfits, titles, character boosts, and vehicle skins for purchase with Valor Commendations. For example, the Red VBI Infiltrator outfit (see image above) is just one of many exclusive rewards you can unlock. Since these are rewards for the players of Defiance, we want to hear from you Ark Hunters! Head over to our official forums and let us know your thoughts on the kinds of rewards you would like to spend your Valor Commendations on. The Defiance team wants to ensure the current players are rewarded for their efforts and we hope to see them continue the fight in Defiance 2050. As we get closer to the launch of Defiance 2050, we will announce a cutoff date for Valor Commendations being earned in Defiance. Pursuits and purchases made after that cutoff point will no longer grant Valor Commendations. The character on your original Defiance account with the highest EGO from Pursuits at the designated cutoff date will have their Pursuit EGO score converted into Valor Commendations for Defiance 2050. Unique Title Transfer Let’s kick it “Old School” and discuss what will happen with some of the unique title rewards that you have earned in Defiance. There are a few rare titles that were earned by Defiance players and we want to ensure they can have them in Defiance 2050. Defiance 2050 plans to include titles like “6k in My Day”, “Daredevil”, and “Old School” along with many others, please let us know what titles are important to you and discuss on the forums. Account Upgrade Transfers With the exciting changes coming to Defiance 2050, many of the items and systems from Defiance will no longer be applicable. That said, we want to make sure Defiance players are able to keep the account upgrades that will still exist for Defiance 2050. Any account-based unlocks of character slots and loadout slots will be transferable to Defiance 2050 via the Valor Program. We are excited to share the Valor Program with you all and for any questions please see our Valor FAQ forum post and let us know your thoughts on the official Defiance forums, Facebook, and Twitter! Special thanks to Trion Dev Woofster for helping organize Valor Program details. View the full article

We are thrilled to announce the next chapter in the Defiance universe will be coming this summer to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in a massive online sci-fi shooter we’re calling Defiance 2050.

To expand your experience, we will also be offering a variety of optional purchasable cosmetics and items that are not tied to power, ensuring that all players are able to enjoy the Defiance 2050 experience on an even playing field. Transfers Between Defiance and Defiance 2050 Defiance 2050 was built from the ground up to be the most enjoyable Defiance experience possible, with major overhauls to key systems, like progression and itemization, and various innovations being implemented. To do this, we had to ensure that the game wasn’t hindered by the past, a move that ultimately resulted in some elements from the original game, like entire character and item transfers, not being possible. However, some in-game progression, such as character slots and loadout slots from Defiance, will transfer from the original game. Additionally, in the weeks ahead the Defiance team will be introducing the Valor Program, which will give Defiance players a way to earn exclusive upgrades and special in-game rewards that can be applied to Defiance 2050 when it launches.

Valor Commendations can be redeemed in Defiance 2050 to unlock awesome items that will be exclusive to our dedicated Defiance fans. Closed Beta Coming Soon – Sign Up Today!

  4. Hey All, This is Matt “Destromathe” Pettit. You may know me as the Producer of Defiance, and today I’m excited to share some amazing news from the Defiance team that has been a long time coming! The team is gearing up to celebrate our 5th anniversary of working in the awesome Defiance universe, and this year is going to be different from other Defiance anniversaries. We’ve been working to take Defiance to a whole new level and fully reimagine what can be done with a massive online shooter game unlike any other. No single update or patch could accomplish this, so are taking Defiance into the future through a new experience. We call it… Defiance 2050. When talking about Defiance 2050, it’s important to know a bit about where the Defiance team has been, and how that leads into where we are headed in the future. After all, this new chapter in the Defiance saga was built to answer the biggest questions that the team was facing. How can we get the most people to enjoy this crazy massive world we have built? Simple, we put it on a new generation of hardware. Defiance 2050 will be available this summer on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. I‘ve wanted to announce that for what feels like forever! How will this experience be different? We cannot simply enter this new future without rewriting some of the past. New graphics and improved stability are made possible by this new generation of hardware, which will allow you to experience Paradise like never before. Nothing will be the same, as we are working to reinvent game changing systems. Take your own power and play how you want, with new levels of customization that will create entirely new ways to play Defiance. Since becoming a part of the Defiance team three years ago, I have discovered that so much of what Defiance is can only be described as completely unique – an experience that you cannot find anywhere else. Whether fighting in huge dynamic battles with dozens of friends or travelling across the huge terraformed world on your ATV with your clan members, the experience has been one that we all keep coming back to over the years, because it simply cannot be found anywhere else. So how do we stay true to what Defiance is all about? This was the easiest question to answer: we listen to all of YOU. Whether you are one of more than five million players who have played Defiance in the past or a new Ark Hunter eager to sink your teeth into the massive online world with your friends, this game would not be possible without you. That is why this time, Defiance 2050 will be a streamlined, AAA Free-to-Play experience, built from the ground up with players in mind and taking full advantage of recent advancements in the shooter genre. Everyone and anyone can log in and participate, and I am calling on all of you, new and old players, to come see the new experience that we are creating. Sign up for the Beta, which is coming SOON. Watch the video below for some exciting new footage, and keep your eyes out for some awesome future updates that the team and I will be putting out to show some of the amazing new systems coming your way. A new day for a new Defiance. Happy Ark Hunting! – Matt “Destromathe” Pettit View the full article

Is Defiance 2050 cross-platform? Defiance 2050 can be played separately on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 and will not be cross-platform compatible. What languages does Defiance 2050 support?

  7. Welcome, ark hunters! You’ve asked, we’re answering. We’re back with another action packed Defiance Dev Q&A! Make sure to keep an eye out for the next question collection thread on our official forums next week! 1. Will the Corporate Espionage outfits ever make their way to the bit store? With a few of the boxes being pulled off of the store, we are looking in to how the outfits contained in them will make it out to the store. 2. Is there a specific roadmap for the life cycle of Defiance, and somewhat related, with the new expedition content will we start to see the game migrate away from arkfall instances and over to Expeditions? Finally, for expedition content will there be any more story or lore driven content? Right now, we are working on some non-expedition content for upcoming updates. We can’t say much, but we do plan on releasing more info at Gamescom and PAX Prime. You get a hint about what is happening with Dark Matter in the latest Arkbreak Expedition. 3. Are changes coming for BMGs? They’re abused for gaining the highest scores in events. Adjusting how score is calculated, including the way BMGs fit into the mix, is on our to-do list. As an intermediate fix we will look into adjusting the score for healing. 4. Older vet players feel left out for a lot of bonuses. Can’t us old folks that are XP capped get a 2x Arkforge or 2x key weekend? We are looking into other types of activities for Bonus Weekends aside from boosts. Keep an eye out for those in the future. 5. What is the protocol for users concerning the Sol’s Prominence Infector mods? As you may have noticed, we have fixed the infector mods from dropping with the new Sol’s Prominence Synergy. For the players that have acquired an infector mod, we have granted a new Sol’s Prominence Synergy Lock Box that should be in your claims. 6. Where do we stand on broken chips/keystones? They’re updated on the Public Test Server and the changes should go live in the near future. 7. What plans are in the works for including additional outfits “inspired” by the TV show for use in the game? We currently have multiple new outfits in the pipeline that will make it to the game later on down the line. As for a show specific outfit, we are looking into bringing that later than expected. We hit a few technical snags with how the show outfits are designed in real life compared to how they would work in the game. 8. Seeing the public backlash over the ladder, are there any plans to add it back into the game? We’ve seen a few threads mention the ladder removal from the map of the mines for expeditions. We’re going to take this Q&A to explain what happened. The ladder inside the mine was actually removed in mid-March when we discovered internally and confirmed on PTS that you could reach a platform where some enemies (mainly hellbugs) would not be able to fight back. We decided to remove the ladder leading to the platform. Because it was an art adjustment the change didn’t make it prior to console submission process around that March timeframe. It just finally made it to the LIVE environment with the last update. However, we did fail to release a proper release note and we will try and correct that process for future player communication. 9. Can we get more loadout slots please? Because we are planning to add more varied content in the future, we do agree that this will be more of an issue. We were planning to evaluate if this would be needed after we round out what we would like to do for our PvP updates. Discuss this article on the forums. View the full article

  13. Welcome, ark hunters! You’ve asked, we’re answering. We’re back with another action packed Defiance Developer Q&A! Keep an eye out for a new question collection thread on our official forums next week. 1. What are the current priorities for the Defiance team? For bugs and performance, we are tracking down multiple leads. We have identified and are currently tracking a reproduction case of the Siege stalling issue. We are also looking into PS3 proxy optimization and general disconnects. We have had reports of enemies phasing out, but we do need more reports on this issue to track down the cause. Please send us details on your experience.In these reports, please include the location, enemy name, and your platform. If you are playing on PC, including the general specs on your machine will help us better track this issue. 2. Any update on Rashere’s undesireables aside from MK2′s? We’re updating the old, undersireable guns a little at a time. Several have already been boosted and reintroduced. There are many more that we plan to address before we are satisfied with the changes. 3. Silicon Valley can be very bad critical errors, especially for players on consoles. Are you still going to have Major Arkfalls there for the next event? Silicon Valley will continue to be a possible location for the Major Event Arkfalls. We are addressing Silicon Valley in two batches. The first pass should arrive with the next update with some optimization and we are hoping to add some performance improvements with this update. A later update will include some additional optimization in the area KILLSHOT707 pointed out to the Defiance Team. We’re hoping that the second update will resolve most of the major issues in Silicon Valley. 4. My Paradise currency has been maxed out for over a year now. Will anything useful be added to this vendor? An Arkforge converter like the Chimera vendor has would also be welcome. With the upcoming Summer Event, we have some novelty weapons on most of the Reputation Vendors. For items beyond this event, we are working on evaluating all Reputation Vendors. 5. Will we ever see Expedition enemies in open world? It would make the open world more challenging for higher EGO players. We have discussed this possibility in some Arkfalls or Emergency events. For implementation, we may make some unique captains in the open world so that they do not conflict with some of the Pursuits and Contracts. 6. What is the possibility of increasing the group sizes to six in Co-ops and Expeditions? At this point groups will remain at 4, though we have thrown around some ideas with multiple groups of 4 for specific events. For this to be implemented, rewards and difficulty will need to be balanced accordingly. 7. Are the Paradise contracts always going to be Expedition based from now on? Since the Alcatraz update, aside from the occasional Patron contract since they started, they have all been Expedition based. This has effectively cut me off from gaining Paradise rep, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. The weeklies are Expedition based, we’ll add the dailies for the Co-ops back to the rotation of the non patron contracts with a future patch. 8. Is there an ETA for when PvP balancing will begin? We will begin some PvP testing on PTS after our upcoming Summer Event. 9. I’m here to ask for one thing: Lore. Lots more lore. Screw more events, give me some substance! We are working on some story elements that tie the Dark Matter Expedition Heaven Sent into some future events. We will have to see what the Votanis Collective and Dark Matter have prepared for us in the future. Discuss this article on the forums. View the full article
