Trion Reveals DLC Plans for Defiance!

Trion Worlds announced yesterday, that as many as five DLC packs are planned for their latest title, Defiance. All of which are scheduled to be released this year.

What I’m most excited for is the new content that features new tie-ins to the TV show Defiance. That was one of my complaints when I reviewed their title (not enough tie-ins to the show). One of the new updates features a new open world game mode called Sieges; not sure how this new mode will connect with the show, but it sounds interesting.

Take a look at the first DLC pack, Enter The Castithan (name subject to change):

You get this when you buy the DLC for $10:
–    Access to play the Castithan Species
–    Access to a new Story Mission Line with new Battle Arena Game Mode
–    Access to the new Castithan Battle Arenas
–    Castithan Charge Blade & Ceremonial Mask as a reward from Story Mission Line
–    A unique version of the Raptor, a new 4 player truck of doom
–    A unique Castithan version of an outfit
–    A Charge Weapons Starter Pack
–    Access to New Pursuits
–    New Xbox and PS3 Trophies and Achievements

You get this in the DLC for free:
–    Access to the new Charge Weapons Class and Castithan Blades
–    Access to Sieges, a new Open World Game Mode
–    Access to the new Monolith Major Arkfall
–    Access to a new PvP Map – Military Academy
–    Join a friend into the Battle Arenas Game Mode
–    Duel your friends and neighbors in the Duels Game Mode
–    Enemies, lockboxes, and events can drop Charge Weapons
–    Select a new voice for you character
–    Multitude of game improvements from UI to content

You can buy these individually from the store:
–    New Mods that tint the color of your Castithan Blade
–    Lockboxes have a chance to get Charge Weapons
–    More versions of the Raptor, the new 4 player truck of doomed compensation
–    Character Customization changes: Appearance change, name change, or everything change

Each DLC pack will have these free, paid, and store update components. Most of the big stuff, like the TV tie-ins, will remain free as Trion wants gamers to be able to play with their friends. At the same time, there is exclusive stuff available for those who are interested. I think it’s a good idea, especially given that there are no subscription fees. Plus, the ability to change your race via the store without starting from scratch is a nice gesture; the Castithan race wasn’t offered at launch.

Update: This DLC pack is scheduled to be released this month.
