Defiance, the MMO third-person shooter that ties in with the upcoming SyFy show by the same name, is set to arrive in April and, starting today, eager Ark hunters can get their hands on four types of pre-order packages for the PlayStation 3 version of the game.
The developers at Trion Worlds are eager to point out that Defianc does not come with a monthly subscription. While you do have to pay to buy the game initially and additional DLC will likely warrant some extra funds from your wallet, signing in to play this unique experience will not come with the added monthly fee usually associated with similar MMOs.
In the world of defiance, you and your fellow players have been hired by Von Bach Industries to locate powerful ark technology that could save our dying Earth. You see, a long time ago, the six species of the Voltanis Collective made a trip to our planet hoping to set up camp, as their own star system was dying. Their peaceful intentions were mistaken for hostility, which of course led to a war of epic proportions. When their giant terraforming device accidentally crashed to Earth, it went on to dramatically alter our familiar landscapes. So, in short, their alien technology is spread all over the planet and we need to find it. Go!
At its core, Defiance is a massive landscape where thousands of players can team up, interact, take on missions or go to war. Arkfall events will pop up from time to time, offering dynamic encounters for nearby players to jump into. Shadow Wars will can also break out at any moment, giving everyone a chance to compete in battls with up to 96 fellow players. Of course, you could always just take on missions, grab loot and upgrade your gear like in every other MMO. Or, for those who are more interested in the shooty-shooty goodness Deviance has to offer, you could also take on special competitive skirmishes on specially designed maps or team up in co-op to take on various bosses.
While Defiance is not due out until April, Trion dropped by the PlayStation Blog today to spill the beans on a variety of pre-order packages currently available for the PlayStation 3. For those who are curious, Defiance will also be landing on the Xbox 360 and PC, but no word yet on if similar offers will be made available for those platforms. Without further ado, here’s a look at the versions of Defiance available for the PS3.
