View Full Version : Easter Eggs? Hollywood? Saberwolves?

When I first joined Defiance, I noticed a LOT of easter eggs. Simple things, like words in Votan languages or QR codes. I actually scanned one, only to find that they were all removed and simply point to Defiance.com :(

There are threads in this very forum of decyphering some of these easter eggs (http://forums.defiance.com/showthread.php?1527-Alien-language-in-videos) and its get more immersive the further I go down the rabbit hole and the more easter eggs I find.

Only problem is, the rabbit hole abruptly stops. None of it really applies anymore. The codes don't work. Noone's updating the symbols to decypher the languages anymore.

Heck, I can't find what a single symbol means from this pic of Thorn Liro arenas

Defiance was is unique in so many ways, here I am playing it 3 years later.


I can only hope there are a few easter eggs out there still, but all I can do is hope to inspire the future of Defiance

So, aside from the usual rantings of how they can't handle their servers or making disconnected 'business' changes...

What do you think is in the future of Defiance? I'm starting to think they're slowly working on some sort of expansion with how secretive they can be about their changes.

A lot of previous assumptions were that they would expand further north or east... But what about Hollywood? I found this in the Wikia for the show http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/defiance/images/5/5d/Hollywood.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20140624181001

Although it doesn't seem very terraformed.... Looks exactly like the game's graphics, though... doesn't it? Maybe a new location? ......Misposted on the wiki and neither game or show? lol

I also happened to come across "Saberwolves" (http://defiance.wikia.com/wiki/Saberwolves) which I don't even recall seeing in the show!

Maybe a new foe type?

They probably used QR codes and things like that to promote the game/tv-show/both, that's why they don't work anymore. So now well, it's hard to find an actual easter egg in the game.
Most of the weird symbols are just Castithan glyphs or writings, like the ones you see on the picture - they represents all the different Liros. The only interesting thing is that you're playing the Valane Liro arena, and the symbol in the center represents the Valane Liro. So maybe it's different on every arena. But that's it, nothing really exciting. :(
And the Hollywood picture is from the TV show, when Nolan is looking for Irisa.

I'd love to see more, but it's a bit too late now, you can't add easter eggs 3 years later, lol.
Now they can do pretty much everything, since the tv show is dead. Irisa, St louis, Nolan and the Omec ship, lots of potential here. We already have the damn Terranaut outfit.

OMG if they had only brought more Omec into the game.

Seriously, Defiance is such a niche and so unique...

How can we find other producers?

Trion seems so absolutely preoccupied on Atlas Reactor junk which has far far less potential, would they even care if someone wanted to buy Defiance off of them?

Saberwolves were featured in Defiance's pilot, if I'm not mistaken..

think they were in one more episode in passing for half a second.

Yes... the episode with the Gulanee. When the ship first crashes, you see some sabre wolves investigating the crash site before getting vaporized.

Also during season 3 when the omec were attacking people in the town of defiance they briefly thought that Saber wolves might have been responsible for the carnage.

Several of those led you to codes you put in and gave you in game rewards. If I remember right they were mixed between the game and the first season of the show. Most people waited until the codes were posted and just entered them.
