Defiance is the first multi-platform massive online shooter video game that is also a ground-breaking entertainment experience, interconnecting with a global television program on Syfy. The game combines the intense action of a third-person shooter, with the persistence and scale of a massive online game, while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic.
Vehicles Terrestrial Motorworks has fused human and Votan technology into the Hannibal 800TR Quad. This four-wheel-drive, all-terrain powerhouse combines a hybrid engine that runs off petrohol and raw gulanite with a reinforced vysidium alloy frame to handle heavy loads and massive hits. There is no smoother ride across the new frontier than the rough-and-ready Hannibal 800TR.
Enemies Hellbugs are a nightmarish by-product of Votan terramorphing technology. These insectoid killing machines bore up from hives deep underground to gather food for their Matriarch, overwhelming their victims in a barrage of chittering teeth and blood-red carapace. As awful as they are, Hellbug waste can be processed into petrohol, the only renewable fuel source on the frontier.
Locales The Arkfall has infused idyllic Marin County with gulanite, an otherworldly mineral that powers Votan technology. Now, driven by lust for the precious crystals, cyborg "Miner 99ers" have turned the bustling mining territory of Marin into a war-torn hell. Even the boldest Ark Hunters must overcome the dread that haunts this area as they confront its vicious denizens.
Activities The Votans came to Earth in titanic vessels called Arks. But an unexplained series of explosions broke the ships apart, surrounding the planet in a belt of orbiting debris. Now, without warning, chunks of the wreckage crash down to earth in cataclysmic "Arkfall events." Arkfalls are dynamic, scaling, multi-stage challenges drawing Ark Hunters, thugs, and hungry Hellbugs into frenzied battles for rare resources and alien technology. Those who brave an Arkfall might reap vast riches ... or perish in a storm of gunfire and screeching monsters.
Pros: I was invited to try the beta out on PC and Console. I tried it (thinking well couldn't hurt) on PC it was fun but thought it would be better with a controller. I DL'ed the beta for PS3 and what a huge difference. I had a blast, and it felt like I was in a massive story line of a game, but with hundreds of other people involved. Truly love the game and have it pre-ordered!
Cons: If you're planning on playing on PC, the only thing that really bugged me was the vehicle driving.
Pros: This game has the potential to change the way you look at MMO games with it's very well done game-play and controls both look and feel right.
The in game story line will keep you involved and the game play will keep you from getting much (if any) sleep because it's just that good.
From the weapons to the special ability's you can learn (called perks) to the vehicles and even the weapon mods this game is so involving and evolving I highly doubt you will see 2 people equipped the same (except for the first time you enter the game of course.) at any given time.
And the best part is the TV series will evolve with/from the games outcome. that means as people play it will affect the story of the TV series!
Pre-order now if for any other reason to be able to start off with the pre-order car because you WILL drive a lot in this game and speed is every thing.
Cons: I have NO cons about this game since my experience was with the BETA release on the PS3. (and it was a GREAT experience!)
Other Thoughts: My game play experience so far has been solely from the BETA version on the PS3 and it has convinced me to buy this game!
Even with the BETA ver. bugs and glitches (and what BETA doesn't have those right...) it was an over all very fun experience and kept me coming back to play it.
