Defiance 2050 Producer Matt “Destromathe” Pettit here and I am thrilled to bring you a detailed content roadmap for Defiance 2050 over the coming months.
With launch day behind us, we’re blown away by how many Ark Hunters have jumped into Defiance 2050. We’ve been working hard to create a smoother Defiance experience for all players by resolving the issues that have come up. Stability has been our number one priority since launch, and will continue to be a priority moving forward. Your excitement to jump back into the Defiance experience has been fantastic and we’re incredibly happy to see so many players, but we do realize how the influx of players can cause a strain on the experience on the whole. With that in mind, we’ve been working as quickly as we can to create an experience that is stable and bug free.
While we work hard to provide the best experience in the here and now, I am sure all of you are anxious to hear about what is coming in the future! We have a constant stream of content and events coming your way very soon.
Over the next few months, we will be adding three new classes to Defiance 2050. While Founders already have access to the Demolitionist class, it will soon be available to unlock in-game for all players. Shortly after that, we will be releasing the hard-hitting Crusader class. The Engineer is planned to release this winter, giving players the ability to summon their own turrets!
Trouble in Paradise
The launch of the Crusader class comes with tough times for Paradise. Crusaders are not here to socialize; they are in town to deal with a new enemy, fighting to eradicate it before the Bay Area and the world itself are decimated. New enemies, Missions, Contracts, and story content are coming in waves, telling the story of this new menace each and every month. Each phase the story will bring exciting new content to explore, culminating in a final showdown early next year with the ultimate end-game experience that you have been waiting for.
This new threat will become stronger as time goes on, but Ark Hunters can load up with great new technology to fight with. Get ready for an entirely new character customization system coming this fall. Players can sink their teeth into some brand new technology that pushes their powers beyond anything featured in the game previously. This new system will change the way you play, and leverage both classes and power to enhance your ability to fight this new threat. We’ve created a road map of our upcoming content that you can check out below.
More story, new enemies, and new dangers are coming, along with new and improved weapons to help you take on the challenge every step of the way. It’s gonna be a hell of a ride in Paradise, so grab your prototypes and join us for many fantastic months of updates that we have in store. I can promise you that the wait will be worth it.
As always, thank you for being a part of the Defiance 2050 universe and bringing it to life with us. Join your friends, and come play with us in Paradise. It has never been a better time to be an Ark Hunter!
