Five months after the PC version went free-to-play, the XBox 360 version of Defiance has finally made it to the free-to-play XBox Live menus. Well, that is if you’re an XBox Live Gold Member ($60 USD per year).




XBox 360 players will have access to all content up through the end of Season 2 and returning Defiance players (those that at one point owned the game) will receive a slew of perks to help them jump back into the game, including:

Character Slots Base: 4
Loadouts Base: 5
Ark Keycode Base: 75
Inventory Slots Base: 70
30-Day Paradise Patron Pass
Grant of 1000 Arkforge
Existing characters will retain any extra Character, Inventory, Loadout and Ark Keycode capacity they already have above the base numbers listed here.

Having just streamed Defiance on a recent episode of BombLive, I still felt that the controls were so much better on a console. Do you agree? Will you be playing on the XBox 360 version?

    well i rate this game 9/10

    F trion and Defiance. Archeage, and Rift. Worst company ever. Takes a month to get any kind of customer service help, even as a paid subscriber. Dumb ass me put in hundreds of dollars to those 3 games, and its a bunch of bs. Hackers in these games have free reign. So piss off with Trion, and all your games.

    I was playing for 2 weeks, this game is just: 2/10
    Chat:Useless, people just don’t use that
    Pvp: Unbalanced, most of people play as sniper+ hide skill + headshot
    Quest system: so boring. Ok, there are some cutscenes, but nothing moar. You need to repeat some areas, shoting same mobs/ op mobs (and few players to group up)… forever alone system.
    Open world events like Gw 2 + Rift : same things, everyday.
    Few updates, almost inexistent.
    New Armor: Cash shop system, all people looks at same (u can earn sets at quest,grind, but is absolutely slow)
    Finally there are 4 classes, and 4 different skills for entire game= bg.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
