Trion Worlds tried a grand experiment in 2013, releasing Defiance as both an MMO and a TV show on SyFy. The show would fizzle out after three seasons, but the game Defiance survived. Trion had plans for it though, and with Defiance 2050, they are looking to deliver their full vision as intended.
On a near future Earth, Defiance casts players as mercenaries who fight their way across the blasted lands, using alien tech to kill your way to prosperity. The 2050 version modernizes the game's old mechanics and graphics — a huge overhaul that more than justifies the new name. It's free-to-play, but Head Start and Founder's Packs have been available for purchase since July 6th for those who can't wait to sling gritty future guns and jagged alloy blades in the grim dark post-apocalypse.
