Demolitionist Arrives August 7th – New Pack Available

The Demolitionist class makes an explosive comeback on August 7th in the free-to-play action shooter Defiance 2050! Have an absolute blast dealing damage as a Demolitionist and toss grenades, spawn hatchlings, and make your explosions create even more explosions! Now’s your chance to unlock the Demolitionist by either purchasing the Demolitionist Class Pack* or through in-game earned Hunter Commendations.

Demolitionist Class Pack:

  • Demolitionist Class
  • Demolitionist Outfit
  • “Demolitionist” Title

*For PS4 EU only, the Demolitionist Pack in the Sony store has been delayed, but the class will still be unlockable in game on August 7th. News for when the Pack is available for PS4 EU will be announced on our social channels.

 

The Demolitionist is the first of many premium classes headed to Defiance 2050. Players can unlock premium classes in-game, through the Commendations Quarter Master and by accumulating in-game currency called Hunter Commendations. Hunter Commendations are awarded for completing certain Pursuits and Contracts. Premium classes will each cost 1,000 Hunter Commendations, and prepare to see exciting new classes like the Crusader and Engineer in the future.

As the Demolitionist, you can cause ultimate destruction and throw Satchel Charges that detonate at your command. Annihilate enemies with the Hatchling Spawner that generates a swarm of hatchlings or unleash a Flashbang that disorients enemies briefly. Upgrade unique passives, like Drop and Roll, to drop a grenade when you perform a dodge roll. Unload an entire Grenade Barrage that significantly reduces cooldowns for grenades or activate Cluster Projectiles that rain down additional explosions on explosion attacks or abilities.
