Trion Worlds is bringing Defiance to the current console generation with an overhaul to the existing game. Dubbed Defiance 2050, the game now sports a streamlined leveling system, better itemization, and a supposed graphical improvement…but with the content remaining the same…is the Defiance story enough to make current Defiance players want to start all over a la Secret World Legends?

    I don’t know what they are thinking with this game putting more content than before behind walls.. Just goes to show trion is losing grip with reality.

    Also the graphics do not look any better just seems they added more shadows and shaders to it and called it a new game, LIKE really that is what they did here. Now watch all the salty players they will create when the old defiance is forcefully shut down and be replaced with this one while everything you bought in the old one will just magically vanish and you have to “RE” buy all the content back.

      It’s Trion. So you know, they take all the free sh!t out and through it in the cash shop. Lock more sh!t behind pay walls. Nerf everything, forcing you to buy premium items.
      This is what they call “NEW”

    Graphic overhaul? They just turned down brightness…

      HA! To be fair, the comparison is impacted slightly in the video by “time of day” in-game 🙂

        So that’s night time we see in the video? If yes then i take it back…

          Yeah, I was hard-pressed to see any significant difference visually in anything. The gameplay changes ‘might’ be enough to get me to play it further. And there may be no choice as since the announcement the server for Defiance has been getting worse and worse to the point where it’s unplayable while even logged in to not being able to log in at all for significant stretches of time.

          And as far as those gameplay changes go the beta really did not show them off much as basically the Assault class just seemed to move the consumables such as Heal Stims and such to just active abilities. They stated one of their goals was to make gunplay a bit more in depth but I couldn’t really tell except that I had to use zoom/iron sights more often but that could just be due to low level versus what I’m used to in Defiance after getting mods and weapon skills up. I hope they don’t go too bonkers with it as ultimately the game is about killing rather bullet spongey enemies and precise aiming and maintaining control gets old if you’re doing it constantly with no rests as you dump mag after mag into major enemy or boss. Gunplay like that only works if the time to kill is relatively low, otherwise its just aggravating as the gunplay doesn’t have peaks and valleys pace-wise.
