Aftermath is Coming

Defiance: Aftermath

Hot on the heels of a bombastic season finale, the ark hunters of the Bay Area are about to be faced with seven new missions spanning all over Silicon Valley and Paradise. The Pilgrims of the Guiding Light reveal their final move, and the world is put in jeopardy once again. The assassin, Nujekpe, closes in on his prey, Eren Niden, and the criminal Melak Vor reveals a new plan to launch a war between what remains of the Earth Republic and Votanis Collective.

With this healthy serving of new mission content comes a slew of new pursuits, contracts, and events. The whole of Silicon Valley is under siege from Grid, Pilgrims, and Hellbugs; only the ark hunters can put a stop to these nefarious invasions. New enemies also pour into the bay with the Grid brining out their largest unit yet: The Inquisitor. These three-meter-tall monstrosities act as mobile artillery platforms. Deep within the three new story mission maps, the ark hunters will also face down Votanis Assassins and even face off with a new kind of Pilgrim zealot.

  • Seven new missions
  • Four new enemies
  • New Pursuits
  • New contracts

As part of our continuing improvements to quality of life, we’re also adding a mission replay for our season 2 missions and matchmaking options for the season 2 mission maps. Additionally, we’ve refined the difficulty settings for co-op maps so that high rating characters will be brought in line with the power curve of low difficulty maps. This way experienced players may join their friends in standard and expert instances without negating the challenge and fun of those maps.
