Event Horizon is on the horizon!

Event Horizon

Event Horizon has come to Defiance 2050. This all new Defiance 2050 event pits Ark hunters against a deadly roster of Quantum damage-focused enemies that bypass Shields and leech health. New Event Horizon minor and major arkfalls will appear all over paradise, providing rewards to Arkhunters brave enough to try and search them.

Event Horizon will run from 4/29/2019 to 5/20/2019, and brings with it several new items, pursuits, and contracts!


New Class: The Engineer

The Engineer Class is here! Our designers have put a lot of love and effort into creating one of the most exciting Classes Defiance 2050 has seen yet. This exciting and powerful new class gives you the ability to summon Drones that help and support you during combat, throw a bed of land mines on the fly, or even pilot your own Mech.

Pick up the Engineer Class when you purchase the Engineer Class Pack or the Ultimate Class Pack.

In-Depth Look: Assault Class

Defiance 2050 Closed Beta specifically features the Assault class and showcases the new class system with a fully customizable class tree. Call it the run and gun extraordinaire, the Assault class is incredibly versatile with a high mobility sprint, healing stim boost, concussive blast stun, and close combat enhancement abilities. The class skill tree allows players to upgrade their class with impactful active and unique passive abilities. The Assault class is just one of many classes coming this summer when Defiance 2050 launches.


Customization: Weapons and Equipment

Discover the new itemization systems and customize equipment to fit your playstyle. Kill enemies, collect loot, and upgrade your gear by using salvage obtained from enemies and enhancing weapon bonuses.
