    Television Series Tie in Content

    Anyone know of any plans to re-activate the television series tie in content? Just started Defiance (although I purchased it at launch) and plan to watch all of season 1 while playing the game. Unfortunately it seems that the content that ties into the TV series has been disabled =(

    Why would they do that? Anyways regardless, I also heard that they will occasionally reactivate the content for people who were not present during original series run. Anyway to get details when this might occur next?

    They've said they do have a date in mind, but they haven't told us the specifics yet. My bet is either new years or the weak before season 2 of the series debuts. They've also said season 2 tie in content will be more like regular side quests, being up all the time rather than require dev activation.

    They do that, because most MMO's have special limited time events and Defiance was following suit. I am fine with that, but they shouldn't do it with the actual episode tie-ins. The should make specific special event missions. They could be about certain game characters or they could be holiday events, it doesn't matter. It would give us actual special events to look forward to seeing on occasion though. It would also make the episode tie-ins permanent so those new to the game/show can do them when they feel ready to.

    The episode quests being one time probably sounded good on paper, but didn't work out that well given how many people play games.

    I'm okay with one time events. Like the vigil for the fallen people during the war, or whatever holidays exist in the Defiance world.

    They need to do what Star Trek online does... and have Re-Run weeks. There content is called Weekly series, where they do a Trek episode once a week for awhile... now and then they will rerun a series over a weekend/week.

    Nice good to know. I'm sure they will scatter them around here and there again.
