Defiance's First DLC Release Date Confirmed

After a short delay from its original July launch window, the first of five planned expansion packs for the MMO3PS/RPG (wut?) Defiance will be coming August 20th. The Castithan Charge Pack will include a new playable race, story missions, weapons, arkfalls, pursuits, and a new game mode. There will be a new patch as well that will add plenty of features to everyone. A full list of paid and free content can be found at the Defiance Data website.

The Castithan Charge Pack will be 800MSP, or no extra charge for season pass holders. The Season Pass is available now for 3200MSP, an 800MSP savings over buying the five packs individually.

I stopped playing this game the second I found about the patch that removed keystones from emergency events. It killed my urge to play the game, knowing that it will be 10x harder to get rare weapons. Because half the fun about games like this IMO is collecting all the rare/legendary/unique weapons.

I couldn't even get through the tutorial. It was so laggy and buggy, I just stopped entirely.

@1: Keycodes are way too common. Being mad because you have more than you can spend is kinda silly.

I picked this up last week for $20 at Walmart. I'm really enjoying it. Will be purchasing the dlc to support the game and the community.

@4: I got it this past weekend as well, really enjoying my time with it so far. Probably wouldn't be as fun alone, but I have 4-6 friends who picked it up at the same time.

I picked up the Ultimate GameStop Edition for $60. Its worth it. Came with a decent statue, a ton of DLC, and the Season Pass. Hopefully this DLC is good.

I thought this game had already gotten some post launch dlc, but it must have just been patches and whatnot.

Taken it's time. It's not a bad game but there is plenty of scope for improvement via DLC/patches.

@2 Why even leave a comment? You clearly never gave it a chance. People like you annoy me. "I didn't like the first 2 minutes, so clearly it's crap and now I should bitch about it online".

@9 If you like me got the game on launch then you would've seen Nim before they patched him. BROKEN AS SHIT, took like half an hour to kill. After patch he was ALOT easier, made second play through less sweaty.

OT: The actual original release date wasn't July, it was meant to the same week as patch 1.0.2 which was back in May.

Game has now become utter boring once you start the grind to 2500. Finding MP matches is near impossible, and the amount of XP you need for that level target is a annoying and it's not helped by the game being boring and really nothing to do. How people have played and enjoyed this to levels up to 5k is past me.

Hopefully the DLC will bring more people back into the game so I can get those MP achievements out of the way.

@4 and 5

Funnily enough i picked it up this weekend as well(well Friday)

must of done over 200 side quests,LOL...just got to San Francisco which frankly is a bit of a disappointment(it's a dump!)..hope there are some better areas scattered about instead of what seems to be a Volcanic wasteland

PS-I hate the Volge..can not kill them for the life of me,and they kick the crap out of me....just try and avoid them when i can,but its getting more and more annoying

I bought it at launch, the main story is boring as shite... The best part is the emergency missions... With thousands of other people.

I may rebuy it at some point if its cheap enough and I see it, it's just a pain patching and stuff all the time..

Loved this game and applaude the developers for all the variety that has being added so far. I also think they should be commended for addressing issues so quickly while other developers shrug their shoulders and forget about it. The amount of free patches and add ons have kept me wanting to keep playing and going back to it and makes a change from the pathetic DLC from other games which is actually already owned and on the disc and they have the cheek to then charge you for it. Be sorry to leave this behind when I move to Xone.

I found to game at Gamestop BRAND NEW (but it still got the pre-owned) for 20 bucks. The game was very good and still in the third act. This game is worth your time but I would think you wouldn't be missing anything if you didnt get the DLC.

I played beta on PS3 and while it was fun for a while it got repetitive very fast. Mediocre graphics and so-so story (too many fetch quests or kill these guys at this spot) made it boring to hell. I do not doubt it would be better with friends, but not much IMO...

The graphics aren't bad for a game like this. It's no Aion but for a MMO it's pretty good. The gameplay lacks somewhat though and if you're going in alone you'll get bored fast. MMOs are always better with friends :).

I love the game and even replayed it five times with friends all the while complaining about when the DOC would come out. I do have a problem with the replay and that's waiting for the next mission to pop up. I understand it during the first play through but after that there are no side missions to do so it kind of sucks. But I guess not to much since we did it five times. With no new games we're interested in it's the go to with friends. Now last is I hope the five DLC's we're to get that their not rushed. I'd hate to think of getting cheap rushed DLC's just so they can get them out in the planed one year promise. Can't wait till the 20th. Selling Orange at the Meir proseccing plant 8:00 PM everyday. Come buy, sell, trade!

@12. well thats the thing, i didnt buy it day 1, i bought it like 2 months after release so i have never had any problems with bugs. it just took roughly 45mins to finish downloading & installing all files & patches. i was meaning that Nim was a cheap boss to defeat.

@13, thanks dude, i agree, some people need to calm the fuck down. but i guess they can get cranky when they dont nap during the day....... lol

anywayz, still like the game. but im going to be playing less now since other games are releasing in the next two weeks.
