Some quick notes from the livestream I took while making lunch for my 4yr old and entertaining my 3mo old....

Beta Specific: Mainly focusing on new systems and player load.

Codes should be going out early this week.
Exact start time has not yet been determined. (Usually starting 10 AM PST)
Game area will consist of Mt Tam and Madera.
Will have the new difficulty levels/scaling, mods, weapons, item systems.
Will have 3 sieges active, Mutant, Hellbug and Raider. And typical Arkfalls.
Will have 1 co-op, Liberate the Lost
100 Inventory Slots
No In-game store
1 class - Assault. Lv25 max, respsec for free.
No PVP
Should be able to acquire all weapon types from drops. (This may not be viable at launch in these game areas.)
BMG and Infectors will not be in Beta. These are now considered prototype weapons.
Predownload may be available on console depending on the Sony and Microsoft schedules.
Contracts are changing and won't be included in beta.
NA/EU for PC Consoles canceled at this time.and Xbox1. PS4 will be NA only for beta. (I think I heard them correctly.)



Other:

Blast rifles don't really exist now? More of a "Alien assault rifle."
Dev Beard Pack may be in the works. (joking about this in livestream)
Trading mentioned again sounded like that it could be possible to trade items or parts related to the new CyberRig and Synergy systems. (Again these won't be available for beta or at launch.)
Weapon and vehicle skill levels are now max at 100 instead of 20.
Dodge Ability - less chance by getting hit by NPC bullets.

ZI was suprised, knowing that the playable area would be Mt. Tam and Madera, that Volge seiges and Afflicted seiges weren't mentioned or included with Mutant, Hellbugs and Raiders. In Defiance 2013 Mt. Tam has two seiges, one at Serenity Academy, the other, Kinship Plaza. Serenity is a mutant seige and Kinship is a Volge seige. Madera also has two seiges, North Point Mine and Kenn Farm. North Point is a Volge seige and Kenn Farms is an Afflicted seige. Hellbug and Raider are new types of seiges. Are these taking the place of the Volge and Afflicted seiges in Mt. Tam and Madera or will they be at in addition to the Volge and Afflicted seiges? It sounds like their going to be a replacement.

someone a few weeks back, took a screen shot when they were on the map screen, and there was a new raider seige, at a palce where sieges dont currently happen.

so i think they will be adding new locations, and rotating them.. so it will be seige at kenn farm.. its hellbugs, then 2 hours later, its raider.

I think it makes scense to push the Volge back further in the game. Make the enemies in the area part of the event. I guess we'll find out....or at least some of us...
