In fact, if you imagine a massively multiplayer third-person version of Borderlands 2 backed up by a television show, you might be somewhere close to what Trion Worlds are trying to achieve. Except that you need to think bigger. - Sir Jonathan of Lester.
It's beta time again, folks, and this time Trion Worlds have handed us a fat heap of PC codes for their incredibly ambitious, upcoming MMO shooter - Defiance.
"Join a futuristic online open-world shooter where thousands of players scour a transformed Earth competing for alien technology," Trion's sergeant majors are calling. "Hunt alone or with others as you improve your skills and level up, unlocking powerful weapons that will help you survive the massive battles that await."
Advance Mission Beta 1 starts January 18th at 4pm GMT, and ends January 21st at 5am GMT, so get your skates on, hit us up for a code, and ensure you're fully registered before the weekend kicks off. You can whet your appetite with Jon's hands-on Defiance preview.
To nab a beta key for play session starting this Friday, all you need to do is drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Defiance Beta 1" in the title and we'll send you a key.
Then simply follow these instructions to get set up
- Create your account or log in with an existing Trion account at https://defiance.trionworlds.com
- Click the APPLY CODE tab.
- Enter your Unique PC Beta Key in the Apply New Code field and click APPLY.
- Keep an eye out on your inbox for your invite email with instructions on how to download the beta client.
We'll be leaping into the fray too this weekend, so look out for a new Dealspwn Playthrough from Carl following the beta, and we'll be chatting a little bit about it in next week's PWNcast too.
