That code on the back of the manual was for pre-order bonuses... idk remember. It certainly wasn't the code players register their system on with...that code is shown in the game menus.

Playing the game from the disc itself shows they are 'veteran players'. Your clan mates who bought it used get all the goodies for buying the actual game.

Pretty sure Nerf is wrong as usual.


Hey folks,

There is one sentence in the IGN article which is a bit confusing, so I just want to clarify.

ANYONE who has purchased the game on PC prior to June 4th or on Playstation prior to July 15 will get the 30-day patron pass and the 1000 Arkforge grant. (Note: that is a separate, additional 1000 Arkforge than the one granted by Arktech Revolution.)

People who find copies of the game with unclaimed codes after those dates, will be able to enter those game access codes to get the same benefits. (Paid player slots, loadouts, inventory, etc. As well as the patron pass and arkforge.)


We're aiming for a 30-Day Paradise Patron pass to be around 800 bits with discounts for longer durations (90-Day and 180-Day). Also, any unredeemed codes found in retail Defiance boxes WILL grant 1000 Arkforge and a 30-Day Paradise Patron pass, even after June 4.


Long/short: if a retail code is or has been applied to an account, that account will get 1000 Arkforge and a 30-Day Paradise Patron pass.


The way I see it, you have 5 choices.

1: Believe Nerfy :rolleyes:
2: Believe Batty :cool:
3: believe those old dev posts
4: run away and never look back!
5: Pm Kiwi, Trick or Scapes asking them to respond in this thread with an up-to-date answer. Actually I will do choice #5 for you, since I am a nice guy........most times.

Is this one of those trick question scenarios? ;)

Since there is no trial accounts on the consoles, all people who are currently playing on consoles will have bought the game and will not be converted to F2P accounts.

Etaew has it! :o If you're playing on console right now, you definitely will not have your account converted into a free-to-play account, even if you purchased the game used.
