he first DLC pack for shooter MMO Defiance will release on August 20, its studio has confirmed.

The Castithan Charge Pack allows users to play as a Castithan, and also ushers in a round of new weapons, pursuits, story lines and more.


Best-of-three matches have been added, as well as massive Siege battles against the Volge and new Battle Arenas. A Raptor Truck, which transports a maximum of four players, will also be added.

The full notes:

  • Play as a Castithan (you can even convert your current character if you'd like!)
  • Battle against the Volge in massive Siege battles
  • Access new Battle Arenas and earn a Castithan Blade reward
  • Duel other players in best-of-three matches
  • Drive the Raptor Truck, Defiance's first 4-player vehicle
  • Fight with the new charge weapons, including pistols, shotguns, and sniper rifles
  • Plus: new pursuits, new story lines, and more
Trion Worlds has promised five DLC packs for Defiance, with both free and paid options available.

A round of redundancies hit Trion Worlds in May, only weeks after the release of Defiance. The game is a tie-in to the Syfy TV series of the same name.

Launched in April for Xbox 360, PC and PS3, we described Defiance as "unfinished and unfulfilling, even if we admire its ambition."

Its only 3 months behind schedule.

I wont be buying any DLC for it, the game is still suffering from bugs it had when it was released. One of the things in the next patch, which is imminent, is suppose to make comms better but we shall see.

Trion Worlds, the company behind Defiance, are closing their European HQ.

Their statement reads...

As part of its recent company realignment, Trion’s European publishing office based in Guildford, UK, will be closing down.

European localized versions of Trion’s live and upcoming games will not be affected as all regional game development and support continues from Redwood City, CA.

For those that play this there is a largeish update that went live a couple of days ago.

Dark matter arkfalls are now ingame where the boss at the end is a monolith (the big robot thing that guards the golden gate bridge)

Also, Volge sieges are ingame as well.

Lots of little touches that have made things better also.

Level doesn't really seem to matter much, main benefit is the ability to unlock more perks and inventory spaces. Comes down to how good you are and not so much on the kit you have.
