Defiance 2050 Head Start and Launch – July 6 and July 10
Prepare for Defiance 2050’s Head Start on July 6, and launch on July 10. Be among the first to fight in Defiance 2050 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (including Steam) by becoming a Founder and playing during Head Start! The free-to-play futuristic action shooter launches July 10, and players will be able to choose from 1 of 4 base classes (Assault, Assassin, Guardian, Combat Medic) to start with. Becoming a Founder can conveniently unlock classes, unique outfits, special titles, and much more, or classes can also be unlocked through gameplay. Enjoy playing Defiance or Defiance 2050 on the platform you prefer this summer, and we’ll see you in the New Frontier!

Classes Overview: Assassin, Guardian, Combat Medic, Assault

Prepare yourselves for launch this summer and take an in-depth look at the 4 new base classes (Assassin, Guardian, Combat Medic, and Assault) in Defiance 2050. Check out our Dev Update video to find a class that fits your playstyle and customize your very own Ark Hunter. Players can freely switch between other classes they have unlocked either through gameplay or by purchasing one of the Founder’s Packs. Look for a future in-depth look at the Demolitionist class, but for now let’s see what these starter classes are all about.

 

Assassin: Stealthy Slayer

Specialize in critical strikes, surprise attacks, and all-out damage as the deadly Assassin class! Sneak up on enemies with your innate Stealth ability and strike through with your Hidden Blade to cut them down.

 

Guardian: Defensive Protector

Hold the line and keep allies safe in the New Frontier as the valiant Guardian class. Put up a protective Barrier to block incoming fire and unleash a Shockwave that stuns foes in an area in front of you. Make a stand and significantly reduce damage taken with your Steadfast ability, then follow up with Taunt to have enemies to focus fire on you.

 

Combat Medic: Tactical Healer

Heal up wounds, save lives, and buff your squad as the vital Combat Medic class. You come equipped with a Healing Bot that follows you and supports your team. Use Inspire to increase your allies damage or grant them an EGO Refresh for greatly improved cooldown reduction on abilities!

 

Assault: Versatile Fighter

Become an all-around offensive and defensive Ark Hunter as the adaptable Assault class. Use the Sprint ability to get into the action or to make a smooth retreat out of danger! Dive head on for some devastating Super Melee attacks that will truly crush your enemies.

 

Get a Head Start and Become Founder

The Ultimate Founder’s Pack includes all 5 unique classes, 3-day head start, an amazing ATV vehicle, slick outfits, special titles, inventory slots, 30-day XP boost, and $50 worth of Bits!

Defiance 2050 – Continue the Fight!

Defiance 2050 is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in summer 2018!

We are thrilled to announce the next chapter in the Defiance universe will be coming this summer to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in a massive online sci-fi shooter we’re calling Defiance 2050. Continue the fight through the vast world of Defiance, reimagined for the current generation of gaming hardware. Check out what the Producer, Matt “Destromathe” Pettit, is excited to say in his Producer’s Letter and sign up for our upcoming Defiance 2050 Closed Beta this year!

 

Defiance 2050 – Continue the Fight!

Defiance 2050 is a futuristic online action shooter set in a post-apocalyptic sci-fi world filled with advanced alien technology. Team up with friends to engage in massive co-op battles, complete compelling story missions, and discover rare weapons and equipment. As you explore the reimagined Defiance universe, you’ll experience new gameplay systems for character progression, loadout customization, and much more! Want to know more? Take a look at the Defiance 2050 FAQ and check for news on the official forums, Twitter, and Facebook.

 

Free to Play From the Start

Defiance 2050 is being built as a free to play game, so everyone can explore the massive post-apocalyptic environment with cutting-edge graphics and new in-game systems. To expand your experience, we will also be offering a variety of optional purchasable cosmetics and items that are not tied to power, ensuring that all players are able to enjoy the Defiance 2050 experience on an even playing field.

 

Transfers Between Defiance and Defiance 2050

Defiance 2050 was built from the ground up to be the most enjoyable Defiance experience possible, with major overhauls to key systems, like progression and itemization, and various innovations being implemented. To do this, we had to ensure that the game wasn’t hindered by the past, a move that ultimately resulted in some elements from the original game, like entire character and item transfers, not being possible. However, some in-game progression, such as character slots and loadout slots from Defiance, will transfer from the original game.

Additionally, in the weeks ahead the Defiance team will be introducing the Valor Program, which will give Defiance players a way to earn exclusive upgrades and special in-game rewards that can be applied to Defiance 2050 when it launches. Stay tuned on our Twitter and Facebook for up-to-date developments, plus visit the forums here to discuss what rewards you would like to see in the Defiance Valor Program.

 

Play Original Defiance and Earn Valor for Defiance 2050!

As a thank you for players of the original Defiance, we are presenting the Valor Program, a system that will reward players for completing Pursuits (achievements) with special purchasables through a new unique currency called Valor Commendations. Valor Commendations can be redeemed in Defiance 2050 to unlock awesome items that will be exclusive to our dedicated Defiance fans.
