The first DLC pack for shooter MMO Defiance will release on August 20, its studio has confirmed.
The Castithan Charge Pack allows users to play as a Castithan, and also ushers in a round of new weapons, pursuits, story lines and more.
Best-of-three matches have been added, as well as massive Siege battles against the Volge and new Battle Arenas. A Raptor Truck, which transports a maximum of four players, will also be added.
The full notes:
- Play as a Castithan (you can even convert your current character if you'd like!)
- Battle against the Volge in massive Siege battles
- Access new Battle Arenas and earn a Castithan Blade reward
- Duel other players in best-of-three matches
- Drive the Raptor Truck, Defiance's first 4-player vehicle
- Fight with the new charge weapons, including pistols, shotguns, and sniper rifles
- Plus: new pursuits, new story lines, and more
Trion Worlds has promised five DLC packs for Defiance, with both free and paid options available.
A round of redundancies hit Trion Worlds in May, only weeks after the release of Defiance. The game is a tie-in to the Syfy TV series of the same name.
Launched in April for Xbox 360, PC and PS3, we described Defiance as "unfinished and unfulfilling, even if we admire its ambition."
