Defiance going free to play
MMO based on TV show will become free this summer
Publisher Trion Worlds has said that its Defiance MMO shooter will be going free-to-play.
The game will become free on PC this June 4, and Trion is targeting July 15 for the PlayStation 3, with the Xbox 360 release being planned. New players will be able jump in to experience the entire Bay Area storyline, original end-game content and future missions completely for free.
Defiance, which was developed jointly with the SyFy television series of the same name, originally launched in a boxed edition for $59.99 last year. There was no subscription fee, however the game struggled to attract an audience in the long run.
We thought that this MMO should be applauded for its ambitious ideas, but the execution faltered in our Defiance MMO review.
