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."
