Live Action Teaser Released To Mark The Occasion
It’s been a hot topic for some time now, but we now know that Defiance will be Buy To Play, with Trion Worlds announcing that it will not require a monthly subscription. The news comes hand-in-hand with the announcement that pre-orders for the upcoming MMORPG have begun on Trion Worlds’ official website.
Two digital versions will be available for PC owners, with the standard edition costing $59.99 (around £38). The Deluxe Edition, which will include extras such as 30-day XP and scrip (money) boosts along with cosmetic additions, will come in at £99.99 (around £63.) Physical versions of the same editions will also be available for the same price, but will curiously only come with 7-day boosts. However, for those looking to get the best package available can order the Ultimate Edition - a beast that contains a messenger bag, a figurine, art books, and micro-transaction ‘bits’ along with the game itself. You can find out more about the pre-orders by heading to the official website.
We know many of you were involved with last weekend’s beta test, and while it is currently under a rather substantial NDA, we can say that it is looking mighty promising for the interactive portion of the Trion / SyFy transmedia collaboration. Defiance is on target for an April release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 36, and if you haven’t already be sure to check out Jon’s hands-on preview here.
