The title will also be accessible for players in the console closed beta once it is available and will be granted in game when Defiance 2050 launches this summer. Explore the Mt. Tam and Madera story mission zones and we even opened up the Liberate the Lost co-op instance so players can team up together. For this closed beta test, in-game store purchases, achievements, trophies, and PvP will be disabled, but look forward to those features at launch. Also, we’re letting players reach up to power level 1500, character level 25, and class level 25. Become a real trailblazer and take it to the limit in the beta!

 

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. Switch between weapon types to be super effective and upgrade the weapons stats that are important to you. Defensive capabilities have several options, including shields, armor, or health improvements. Customize your own Ark Hunter and give those hellbugs hell!
