It might run on a newer Surface Pro (either a 3 or 4), but you would most likely need to set the graphics to the lowest quality. The Surface Pro 3 uses Intel HD 5000 integrated graphics and most Surface Pro 4's use the Intel HD 520. Your FPS is going to be very low particularly in big fights with lots of explosion effects. Now if your friend happens to have a Surface Book with the Nvidia GPU option Defiance would probably perform respectably.

I play on a surface pro 3 and at low resolution runs seamlessly. I love PVP'ing. My friend got a regular surface 3 with the atom processor and doesn't seem to be able to run defiance smoothly.

Thanks, His is a Surface 3 I think with a core i5 processor. We will try low res and see how it goes.
