I suggest the Devs to devulge a little more information on the first scheduled DLC. Not only to increase Season Pass sells, but to sedate the appetites of it's ravaging fanbase. I will speak for no other than myself, but little to no info on the DLC has stopped me in my tracks from purchasing the Season Pass.

So, Trion, gonna fill us in?

I shudder to think of the bugs that will be in that DLC... What we should be doing is setting up a pool of how many patches it will take to fix said DLC and put money on it. At least someone will get some joy out of the whole experience.

They plan five DLCs with the first season of the show. Unless the show plans to have a 42 episode season, the DLCs need to start rolling out soon.

I'm EGO 3,000, as of last nite, I am literally running out of things to do! For some reason, I can't play any other game. It's a sickness...

Gamer: Mr. Game Reviewer? You'll notice that all the Hellbugs have laser beams attached to their heads. I figure every creature deserves a warm meal.

Trion: *ahem* Mr. Gamer? Its about the Hellbugs... By the time we patched this game they were put on the endangered species list. We tried to make some... but it would have taken months to clear up the coding.

Gamer: Y'know, I have one simple request. And that is to have Hellbugs with frickin laser beams attached to their heads. Now evidently my procrastinating game developer informs me that that can't be done. Ah can you remind me what I pay you people for? Honestly, throw me a bone here.

Gamer: What do we have?

Trion: ...Chickens.

Gamer: .........Riiiiight.

Trion: They are... elemental... Chickens.

Gamer: Really!? ...Are they ill-tempered?

Trion: Absolutely!

Gamer: Well that's a start...

I predict :-
1) About 3 weeks.
2) The old mayor (forgot her name).
3) The old fort that somebody found.
4) The volge (sp?).
5) A new vehicle (maybe other colour nomads).
6) Castithan as playable.
7) Some new weapon skins and/or visual effects.
8) An even darker green lawkeeper hat :).

IIRC, in one of the pre-launch streams, one of the devs said the 'season' was not the TV season, but the game season. They also said it would be longer than 3 months, but shorter than 12.

I think you might be right with number 6. The Castithan would be an easy race to add as the new playable aliens. I hope the new race is one of the early DLCs released, since we'll be leveling alts at that point.

Can I ask you a question? First, since it is hard to tell in text, I am not trying to be snarky or insult you. I come from 14 years of playing MMORPGs. I say that because in a normal MMO, there is a reason to create an Alt: a new class, a new powerset (for Supers), et cetera. There is a definitive change in play style that usually comes with an Alt.

In Defiance, outside of the starter guns and appearance, every character achieves the exact same thing. We can open all 4 EGO powers and switch between them freely, the same guns, the exact same Pursuits/Contracts/Side Missions/Main Missions. We can even reset and replay the main missions on a single character. An Alt brings nothing new to the table except a cosmetic appearance.

So, my question is: what is the inspiration behind EGO grinding (i.e. leveling) an Alt in Defiance?

Race affects absolutely nothing, so I don't know what the big deal with that is. Defiance needs content that matters. First DLC should come with a few MP maps AND game modes, and more missions/emergencies/pursuits. Unique weapons that can't be matched by starting weapons, outfits that aren't palatte-swapped, new vehicle types (we'll probably just get colors). I honestly feel like the first DLC won't be that substantial, but it's mostly free, so....whatever.

I'm with Schwa on this one. ("Their skins is red instead of peach.")

I think I would like a new race if they looked cool, but if I'm going to have to level everything all over again I hope the new race comes out in the first DLC so I don't feel like digging out of too deep a hole.

If race offers anything, other than skin nonsense, I am sorely non-interested.

Sadly, I see Trion not being able to add any extra benefits to the additional alien races. It would not only cause grief amongst the in-crowd within the game, but cause an uprise. We can't have bonuses with other races. It would be unfair to everyone else that started the game early.

DragonFall
05-06-2013, 02:43 AM
My opinion is grow the ego grid, and allow people to use 2 or more different skills with the perks rather than one. It will make the game more interesting.

Other hard things to integrate: Jet packs and additional accessories.

If the alien races will just be additional skins it would be a major fail from trion.

Even with some cool bonuses, having to replay the game, without my early UE bonuses, including redoing lvl10 in BMG/injector, or 5K kill using certain weapon ? I'm not really interested.
Not including the missed episodic content.
Also, it would mean my first month or so have been wasted.

A bonus race should have been in the game day 1 for DLC users. Most people will not make another char.

ya the first dlc will b out after patch 2.529 :D when all the bugs are fixed duh

I'm going to take an educated guess and say that most, if not all, DLC is already finished. This is usually the case with a game that announces a season pass on launch day. But I also don't think Trion anticipated such a rocky launch and are holding off on releasing DLC. With all of the bugs and missing content I think they're worried that if the first DLC has a comparable amount of bugs then it could really do a lot of damage to what already appear to be pretty stagnant sales. On the other hand the lack of new content in an already content light game is alienating its core player base. I almost always grab a season pass when it's made available but in this case I took a wait and see approach and I'm really glad I did.

Cl Chaos

Trion will never get the bugs out of Defiance I've come to terms with it so should all of u i mean there are how many hellbugs? they multiply faster then we can kill them dam bugs >< they are here to stay plus are one of the main enemies so y get rid of the bugs? would be only scrapper arkfalls to do then :(

im wondering about the season pass and DLC-s aswell...

Is the season same as the series or a year (7 months).
Season pass has 5 DLC-s and they said there WILL be FREE DLC-s aswell.

At the current rate there would have to be a decent DLC each MONTH.

Yet we barely get any updates or bugfixes at all. DLC is not a large bugfix patch.

05-06-2013, 08:45 AM
DLC will likely be over the course of the year, likely the biggest one between seasons

I was expecting it would coincide with the TV series, but seems unlikely...Trion needs to be careful where they step over the next few months. It might be in a big pile of shtako if they do not handle the new content with extreme care.

I would hate to see this game die out in it's infancy...

Epic Win should definitely not be used to describe anything about this game.

It's a glorified beta that we paid 60 bucks to play. Trion learned nothing from the failure that was Rifts.

Defiance is so full of major bugs and glitches that it's not even funny.

Yea I felt this way 2nd week of release. I sold my game 2 weeks ago cause I needed the money at the time and has ZERO interest in playing the game untill DLC so I just sold it. theyre going for 10-20$ on craigslist anyway lol...but anyway, yea man I said the same thing...ALL MY HOPE is banking on this "Sexy Smooth and Sweet" DLC they Devs are so "excited" to put out. If its just one new character from the show and you get a handful of 10 misisons on a little spot on the map, I WILL BE PISSED and wash my hands of this game.

Or they're desperately trying to get people to go back to Rift while they still have their attention.

They could add race traits if they back-added for the current two. Humans could drive twice as fast, for example.

Clever. I approve.

I suggest the Devs to devulge a little more information on the first scheduled DLC. Not only to increase Season Pass sells, but to sedate the appetites of it's ravaging fanbase. I will speak for no other than myself, but little to no info on the DLC has stopped me in my tracks from purchasing the Season Pass.

So, Trion, gonna fill us in?

Some episode missions about Rynn (hellbug chick from the show) escaping from Defiance to the Bay area where we have to hunt her down. They've been teasing it in the commercials for the game ever since launch.

they need to fix the problems before they can come out with more problem causing content, but i have to agree with you on one part i wanna know what we are looking at in the future.

My opinion is grow the ego grid, and allow people to use 2 or more different skills with the perks rather than one. It will make the game more interesting.


you say that until people are stealthing in pvp and then popping in front of you with a shotgun with overload or whatever active and BAM you are history and never stood a chance.

Im Loving this game but its really in need of new stuff and make the game harder close tho its fun there's not really much of a challenge to it so we're getting through game to fast. I don't have time to play the game 24/7 lie a lot of ppl I put in about 10/15 hours a week and I've almost finished the main story line for a 2nd time and did all the side missions on my 1st play through. Really looking forward to the dlc. Got the pass on day 1 kind of wish I didn't now tho

Why are we worrying about DLC when this game is plagued by so many major bugs and glitches?

A lot of us haven't encountered any "serious" issues and would like something new to do. Even many who have encountered some big bugs, still continue to play and would like to see some new content.

I am pretty sure we will see a DLC at the end of season 1 where Defiance (St louis) gets destroyed.
definitely will see one for the season finale, and probably ine before season 2 starts, but we should already have the first DLC pack, it was scheduled to roll out when the first show aired.

Yea i know right?!?!?

BUT..They DO need to add Episode Missions ATLEAST for CHRIST SAKE, the game has no tie in with the show...U cant even play with Nolan or Irsa if u start a new character or new people start playing the game they will be liike "ohhhhhhhh ok umm how does this game tie into the show" ???

maybe the reason you cant play with Nolan and Irsa is because you are in two different locations.. derp

I will say, this is my first experience with an MMO. I understand they need time to grow, but the inner circle for this game has to know the theme of the future DLCs. Any hint @ it would be great! I can barely begin to understand how difficult it must be to maintain three major platfroms(Xbox, Playstation, and PC). Not to mention there is zero cost, in terms of subscription fee, which is much appreciated!

I look forward to the future of this game. I'm sure all of the newcomer's will think it's one of the best MMOs to ever hit the shelves. There has to be growing pains when it comes to a project of this magnitude. All of us that started at the beginning have seen the evolution of this game. I remember, day two, going to a hellbug arkfall, and not knowing what the heck was going on. It was so laggy and I'm shooting the base of it, not knowing if I'm doing damage or not lol fond memories.

Now, the graphics and framerate seem so smooth. Defiance, the game, has come a long way in it's short six weeks. I have faith.

That's interesting to say the least. Considering your Executive Producer claimed the first DLC was ready to launch, but was held back to fix and stabilize the game first, the consumer would imagine that the DLC information is already available.

So, why the gag order?

Or should customers start becoming suspect at exactly how much of the DLCs were actually done?

"massive co-op boss battles" - Ahaha, "massive".
" fierce multiplayer action in an evolving sci-fi universe" - Mhrm, relatively boring multiplayer in a static lazy sci-fi setting.

" After 5 years of creating this, it saddens us and frustrates us that you aren’t getting the great experience we strived to create"

....5 years, 5 years and this is what they've made, 5 years and they failed to even have the basics of an MMO like guild management, communication and an auction house.


Sorry just to be clear, I do enjoy this game but I think 5 years with this many problems is a tad laughable, especially the fact that Trion somehow forgot how to make an MMO actually work correctly.

Why is an auction house considered a "basic"? It would server no purpose in this game; the items you'd purchase are either so common as to make it pointless, and the legendary ones are only marginally better.

There aren't player crafted items or consumables, so why even bother?

If you want to argue "convenience", why not just make a vendor with every item?

You want to make scrip using the auction house.. to do what with? There's nothing to spend it on.

To give people something to do? It's a shooter, I want to shoot things, not sit around doing maths. Focus on making more content, not a bloody market.

Yea dude it didnt take them 5 years to make this game...THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL. Its a lie and propaganda because if they told u they only took 7 months to a year then people would DEFINATLY be bashing this game

If you think all 5 years went directly to programming and actually DEVELOPING THE GAME, you're ignorant and know nothing about game development. A TV show and video game were created together, so generally speaking, you could multiply the normal concept stages for a tv show and a game, multiply them by 2 and add them together. Then you have to realize they had to go back and forth, seeing what would and wouldn't work, making sure everything was consistent between both mediums. They have 5 planned DLCs for THIS YEAR, and another season of the show. The game had to launch two weeks before the show, I'm sure a lot of content had to be held back and added at a later date. They could have released the game with more BROKEN content, but they didn't.

Anyways, here ya go.
