A quick PSA in case this slipped past you, Gamigo is shutting down several titles today, including Twin Saga, Defiance, and Defiance 2050. Though the actual news of the shutdowns were announced earlier this year in February, the time has come.
Gamigo is clearly cleaning house as it was announced yesterday that not one, but three of their titles would be shutting down: Twin Saga, Defiance and Defiance 2050.
For those still lingering on Defiance 2013 on the Xbox 360, Trion Worlds unfortunately has some bad news. The Xbox 360 servers for the game will be shut down permanently on May 25th.
The Defiance team has posted a series of celebratory events for Armistice 2019. From today through April 1st, nine different events will be taking place in the game for players to participate in. The event also includes new items including the Caustic Fury Supply Crate and the Cyber Rig: Caustic Furty. The Armistice Bargain Box is also back and can contain a number of rare weapons and more.
From April 23rd to May 7th, Defiance players can log in to the Event Horizon in order to enjoy 100% boosts to experience, reputation and score. This is a golden opportunity to earn extra EGO points that yield Valor rewards for Defiance 2050.
From now through April 9th, Defiance players can head into the game to take part in the 4-in-1 Armistice Event. During the simultaneous events, players can take part in Hunker Hell, Neo Votanis Freebooters, New Frontier Harvest and Outbreak. In addition, there is a new Outbreak with four tiers available that will help players earn EGO and Achievement points.
Prior to the launch of Defiance 2050, Defiance players will be able to earn a new currency called Valor Commendations that are used to unlock special cosmetics and character boosts. These are earned by completing Pursuits (achievements). In addition, the team detailed a set of unique Defiance to Defiance 2050 perks.
Trion Worlds has announced Defiance 2050, a reimagined version of the original game that is better suited to the current generation of consoles and to better take advantage of the power of today's PCs. Defiance 2050 will launch in Summer 2018 for PlayStation 4, XBox One and PC.
DualShockers recently met up with some Trion team members who are working on Defiance. With a stable population of about 120,000, the team feels that it's time to bring Defiance up to the current generation by updating systems and graphics and by addressing the community's wishlist.
Defiance players will be staying frosty starting today with the return of the Solstice Strike Event. The landscape is covered in snow, peppered with candy canes and rife with snowpersons. And let's not forget those decorated trees with gifts beneath. Ready to snuggle with sugarplums dancing in your head?
A new faction and currency are available in Defiance that will make purchasing specific synergies a snap. Called the "Ex Inanis", these vendors take a special currency called "Purified Gulanite" that is obtained in expeditions, emergencies, sieges, arkfalls and through contracts. Using purified gulanite allows players to purchase specific synergies. A premium version of the boxes sold by these vendors is also available in the shop.
A new Defiance event has kicked off. Called "Outbreak", it includes brand new arkfalls that see ark hunters taking on biologically diseased defilers and hulkers. Taking part in the event will yield new loot including the Calamity rocket launcher, a new synergy, a new weapon manufacturer and several new weapon types.
The Defiance site has been updated with the news that "Hulker Hell" has hit live servers. During the event, set to run through November 7th, players can take part in a number of seasonal activities that bring new weapons and mods that can be found in Hulker Hell Arkfalls and Sanguine Extraction Supply Crates.
A new developer post on the Defiance site informs players that the Exchange system has been removed from the game. Taking it out of the game came as a result of unforeseen and irreparable technical issues. The team has implemented a number of fixes in an attempt to resolve the problems, but to no good result.
Trion Worlds has updated Defiance with The Exchange that will allow players to buy and sell to one another. Players will need an Exchange Sell Slot to be able to access the ability to buy and sell.
