Defiance 2050 is a refreshed version of Defiance from 2013, the third-person MMO of the action, whose plot intertwines with the story presented in a TV series of the same title. Behind the production is Trion Worlds studio, known from Trove and RIFT. The title was released in the free-to-play model.
The story told in Defiance 2050 takes us into an undefined future. The Earth became an object of interest of cosmic invaders, who invaded and began the process of planetary terraformation. We play the Ark Hunters, that is the survival art of space technology seekers. As warriors with above-average skills, we travel around destroyed San Francisco, meeting mutant representatives of fauna and flora and aggressive aliens.
Performing further missions introduces us to the details of a catastrophic story, which is complemented by a TV series broadcast in 2013-2015.
The feature line Defiance 2050 is identical to the one presented in Defiance.
The game starts with the creation of a character, which we gradually develop along with the progress in gameplay in the style known from MMORPGs. Our hero gains experience points that allow him to advance to the next level and unlock new skills. During the game we can freely change the available character classes, each of which has its own specialization. At the start we have access to four: Guardian, Assassin, Combat Medic and Assaut.
We observe the game in the third person view, crossing the open, three-dimensional world. The game is based mainly on the performance of subsequent tasks and participation in global events, such as extracting valuable resources or fighting against gigantic monsters, which many players need to overcome. During the fight we have to show accuracy, which is to some extent also determined by character statistics.
The development of the form also includes the selection and modification of an appropriate arsenal. Dozens of futuristic weapons are at our disposal. There are also various vehicles available in the game, which we use to quickly move around the world.
Defiance 2050 offers open world gameplay with hundreds of other players in the traditional MMO style. We can group together with them to carry out missions together or struggle with the toughest opponents in instantiated locations. There is also a PvP mode that allows you to compete on virtual battlefields or in the open world for up to 64 teams.
Defiance 2050 is a faithful reboot of Defiance, in which modern technological solutions have been applied. The update affected mainly graphics, but also game mechanics and interface.
