For the life of me I cant find the Video but a Dev said something about. "Manipulating the weather in Defiance" where is it? Rain collecting on the ground and such. If you have the video please link it.

Well seeing as the entire Earth was changed, weather patterns may change but at different times than what we're used to. It may not rain much in the Bay Area for weeks, or winter may roll around suddenly at different times. The game has been active for 2 weeks, who knows how the weather may change.

Then again the weather may have changed so much that certain spots get no change whatsoever.

Having weather patterns would be a nice touch to the game to give it a bit more life, so I definitely hope it's in the works. Even better if it actually has some sort of effect on combat.

I've seen fog over at Tork's place. No rain anywhere yet though.

That wasn't FOG, that was just Torc after heavy spicy meal.

Is it me or are the graphics better in those trailers/previews? Weather effects looked nice too, our PC's can definitely handle it.

Didn't they mean weather by the arkfalls changing the surround conditions?

I like the Arkfall effects but this game definitely needs some dynamic weather to make the world feel more alive. I would love to see it rain and storm from time to time.

All trailers are made pretty on purpose to generate interests. That is how advertisement work and end product is never the same.
