First Dose Of Defiance DLC Detailed

“Enter The Castithan” Coming Later This Month

Ambitious online shooter Defiance will be getting its first major content update later this month, developers Trion World have announced. In an update posted on their official website, executive producer Nathan Richardsson has provided details on how these “DLC” updates will work moving forward, as well as addressing the feedback from both players and critics over the game’s first month of live play.

Conceding that more work needed to be done to address bugs, Richardsson went on to declare that he was happy with how reviews were recognising that Trion are “taking known concepts and doing something new, we’re fun, and we have potential.” Admitting that he knew that Defiance would be a “polarizing” product, he stated that the aim was to make Defiance “your favourite B-movie.”

The post goes on to detail the first of five DLC packs to be released this year, titled “Enter The Castithan.” Those who buy it from the Defiance Store (or through the game’s season pass) will be able to create Castithan characters, who are the pale, silver haired aliens in the Voltan Collective. Alongside the release of the DLC, all players will receive an update where they will gain access to new weapons, PvP maps, and game modes, amongst other content. It is expected to be in the hands of the players by the end of the month, and we have the (tentative) list of content below:

You get this when you buy the DLC for $10:
– Access to play the Castithan Species
– Access to a new Story Mission Line with new Battle Arena Game Mode
– Access to the new Castithan Battle Arenas
– Castithan Charge Blade & Ceremonial Mask as a reward from Story Mission Line
– A unique version of the Raptor, a new 4 player truck of doom
– A unique Castithan version of an outfit
– A Charge Weapons Starter Pack
– Access to New Pursuits
– New Xbox and PS3 Trophies and Achievements

You get this in the DLC for free:
– Access to the new Charge Weapons Class and Castithan Blades

You can buy these individually from the store:
