Hey it’s June 4th, exactly one month until America’s Independence Day where we stuff our mouths with hot dogs while we watch fireworks from a comfortable lawn chair. It’s tradition, and what better way to celebrate an upcoming tradition then by lighting off some of your own high-grade explosives starting today in Trion’s newly Free-to-Play MMOTPS Defiance.

The Sci-themed shooter is now available to all PC players (Xbox 360 and PS3 players get it for free on July 15th) and is meant to coincide with Defiance’s Season Two television premiere on the SyFy channel slated for June 19th. For those of you that forgot, Defiance has a t.v. show loosely based around the events within the MMO and the two are said to influence each other.

In celebration of Defiance’s switch to F2P, Trion has released a new NSFW (now safe for wallets) trailer which is filled with bombastic action and an abundance of one liner cliches you’d expect in a SyFy original series.

Those who previously purchased Defiance can expect to be showered in goodies through the game’s Paradise Patron system which rewards players with 30 days of daily garb grabs, experience increases, additional resources and a cash shop discount.

Players who aren’t afraid of a little extra-terrestrial bug juice or mutant corporate mongers can sign up and download the game through the official site now.

    This game looks nice, I will try it.

    This game does have AI bugs, but the GM’s are quite active in my opinion. I had an enemy stuck inside a small bridge with force fields and he was the last one to be defeated. The GM swarned the small hall with bombs and blew him the hell up LMFAO. Continued my mission peacefully. This was yesterday from this post.

    • Eviil on June 5, 2014

      In-game bug report, resolved in a little over 1 minute. Enemy had to be defeated in order to progress further in my current main mission.

      • Kimwer on June 5, 2014

        I remember having a lot of fun with this game back in beta. And yeah, the GMs were active even then. Don’t know why so many people hate this game. It’s like Neverwinter. People just hate it.

        • Eviil on June 5, 2014

          They probably hate it and still play it LOL. its much better than many games out there anyway.

          • Eviiil on June 5, 2014

            I also perform oral on overweight truckers at highway gas stations.

          • Kimwer on June 6, 2014

            Yup. The game’s really fun. If people complain, well then they just hate it because they want to.

    Didn’t the game had issues? AFAIK, it was AI.

    • Anon on June 5, 2014

      It had an issue with sucking and not having anything to do come endgame.

      That’s basically the Trion stamp, and is why everything they touch dies.

      • Matt on June 5, 2014

        I dont think rift is dead I see a lot of people still playing rift.

  14. AsksAboutStuffs on June 4, 2014

    • Tenaka on June 5, 2014
