The ambitious shooter/MMO, Defiance, developed by Trion Worlds is scheduled to release in April and a beta is already underway. Today, a blog post published via the PlayStation Blog shared a myriad of new information relevant to the game, with the most notable news being that Defiance will ‘not have a monthly subscription’.
The post also featured a new trailer for the game that you can view below, along with details regarding the variety of additional content available for those who pre-order the game or purchase one of Defiance’s special editions.
Defiance is a shooter. Defiance is an MMO. Defiance is a game where you can group up with your friends – be it two, three, or thirty, and traverse the expanse of a terraformed San Francisco Bay area. You’ll encounter thousands of players in-game with you. With your friends, and the folks you meet throughout the course of your journey, you’ll explore the world of Defiance and unravel the story that is entwined with a Syfy series (coming to TV this April).
