Trion, Syfy and the Defiance team have announced that the first beta event for the upcoming MMO is slated for January 18-20th. Called “Advanced Mission Beta 1”, players will have access to several zones including the tutorial, massive co-op boss battles and a 'competitive multiplayer map'.
Participants in “Advanced Mission Beta 1” will be transported to a futuristic San Francisco bay area, and will take on the role of an ark hunter. Part treasure hunter, part mercenary, ark hunters are genetically enhanced operatives who are fearless and lethal, dedicated in their mission to recover valuable alien technology and sell it to the highest bidder.
Sign up for beta testing on the Defiance VonBach Industries site.
