Got the email the other night, it said "Your Trion Glyph Account has been granted access to the Defiance 2050 Closed Beta, Log in to Glyph on April 20th and continue the fight."


Should I be looking for a new game option on Glyph or will this be downloaded through the Defiance PTS download? I'm just confused because I'm not seeing anything on the Glyph launcher, yet I'm hearing from a friend that the beta is up for Pre-Load on Steam...

I have bad news for you, PTS in its current state is NOT Defiance 2050:

Defiance 2050 is DirectX 11, not 9.

Also, just to clear up any confusion, we are not running 2050 on the Defiance PTS servers. An option to download 2050 will appear in Glyph once we are ready.

DirectX 11 is so outdated. Why not 12?

If I had to guess, it must be much easier to develop games for DirectX 11 than for 12, otherwise the gaming market would be overflowing with DirectX 12 or Vulkan API games, but this should be confirmed by somebody who is more knowledgeable on this topic than myself.

Its true that DX11 isn't new (first version was released in 2009!), but its still pretty widespread, and the latest DirectX 11 version (11.3) was announced along with DirectX 12: "It is meant to complement DirectX 12 as a higher-level alternative." (from Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DirectX#DirectX_11)).
