Why have one important date for your game when you can have three? Trion Worlds’ reboot of Defiance has a launch date, and a head start date, and an open beta date. Oh, and there are also three dates for when you can purchase Founder’s Packs. Dates all around!

First up is the Defiance 2050 open beta for PC, which runs from June 22-25. All four classes will be available, and June 22 is also the cutoff date for earning Valor rewards for completing pursuits in the original Defiance. Next is the head start date for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, July 6, which is available to anyone who purchases a Founder’s Pack, followed by the full launch of the game on July 10.

As for those Founder’s Packs, you can purchase them today for PC and Steam, on June 19 for Xbox One, and on July 6 for PlayStation 4. They range in price from $19.99 to $49.99, and get you access to all classes (also earnable in-game), currency, and/or cosmetics. Learn more about Defiance 2050’s launch plans on the website.

  1. I bought the 1st for $10, next day.. F 2 P happened, then I realize the great paywall of the content, next day *offline* for 2 years, re-install for a “promising” update (if I’m not mistaken this was when they stop their syfy tv’s) BAM! delete after 15 minute of gameplay.
