This weekend marks the final beta test for Defiance, Trion Worlds' breathtakingly ambitious MMO shooter that will tie seamlessly into a simultaneously-running TV show.
However, you'll need to be a PlayStation Plus member to participate.
Starting on 22nd March (this Friday), the Defiance beta will run until 25th March ."PlayStation Plus members can become an Ark Hunter," explains the announcement on the EU PlayStation Blog, "and join the fight as we bring you four days of intense alien warfare!"
PS Plus subscribers can also get a saving on Defiance at launch, paying out £27.99 instead of £34.99.
We've taken a lengthy look at the ambitious project in our Defiance hands-on preview, wherein we discuss its accessible mechanics, the SyFy tie-in and its unique arsenal. We also exclusively broke the news that it supports true cross-platform play between PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, but Microsoft and Sony's intense rivalry will ultimately stop that from happening. More details are available in our interview with senior producer Rob Hill.
Defiance launches on April 2nd.
