You can download the launch patcher from steam already, though I don't think you'll be able to patch anything just yet.

Not true. I have the game on Steam and there is no possibility to download anything yet.

I looked last night. There is definatly an "Install" button when you select the game in your library.

After talking with Trion CS during the beta I am pretty sure that there will be no preload on steam. You can download and install the Defiance Updater right now, but I think when it launches your account will unlock in the patcher and you will be able to download the game from there. That is the only thing that worries me after launch is the whole "not entitled to play" thing being fixed hopefulyl it goes smoother that the last beta lol.

Knew I wasn't seeing things! Screenshot in another thread showing the install button, though as been pointed out it is just the patcher. Nothing else.

If that happens, you can use add non steam game for the Steam overlay or you can copy the patcher over from trion to your steam directory and overwrite the steam version of the patcher :O

None of the distributors seem to have received permission yet to eventually allow users to pre-load Defiance at some point prior to launch, which is odd.

well... they may want a more "phased" period of people trying to get in game. having everyone try to login and enter the game at midnight on monday across xbox/PS3 and PC might not be something they want. if you have to download the game/install it, it will spread people around in time and in game.

personaly im ok with this, i had more fun soloing then grouping with people i couldnt talk to.
