New TV Tie-In Coming to Defiance!

We’ve already reported that Trion Worlds was adding more content to Defiance this month. Today Trion sent over some information about some of that content and how it would tie-in to the Syfy channel show!

If you didn’t see last week’s episode of Defiance, you may want to do that before reading on (that’s a Spoiler warning if you didn’t know). The character Rynn, one of the Ghost Riders, was arrested at the end of the episode for trying to take out the town. She had a past history with some of the humans there and wanted to exact her revenge using Hellbugs. It was a good episode. Well, it seems that her character is coming to the game; she is being escorted by Nolan and Amanda to a prison in Las Vegas.


She escapes after the land coach is hijacked. Upon entering the game’s world, she releases all new Hellbug enemies on players. Players will have to work together to return Rynn to Defiance in order for her to appear back in the show. Check out the game details below:

Arkfalls and Emergencies

•         New hellbug arkfalls and events featuring the elemental hellbugs appear across the Bay!


4 new emergencies will be added to the world, but only during this event. In each of the emergencies, the player will be fighting against the new elemental versions of the hellbugs while trying to accomplish a task for Rynn:

•         “Exotic Goods” : Brave a thriving hellbug nest to harvest chrysalis samples for Varus

•         “A New Pair of Genes” : Take on a Monarch in order to collect samples of his DNA for Rosa and Eren.

•         “Smells Like Victory” : Harvest samples straight from pheromone secretors for Von Bach

•         “Thinning the Herd” : Help a group of Echelon Mercs clear out a Hellbug Nest to assist Cass in purging the land of this menace.

Faction contracts
•         All of the Factions change their contracts to Hellbug themes.

3 Hellbug Season Missions

•    Mission: The Vagabond

•    Cooper calls to say that some ER soldiers are pursuing an Irathient woman in the Bay Area.

•    Mission: Piper Investigation (parts 1-4)

•    The player tracks Rynn through a handful of locations discovering remnants of combat between ER soldiers and hellbugs.

•    Mission: Paying the Piper

•    Rynn contacts the player. She has found where the rogue ER soldiers have set up the new Project Piper location. Players must descend with Rynn into the bunker and stop the soldiers from using Project Piper. In the process, the Project Piper data/device is destroyed and can never be used again.

Data Recorders

  • 4 new Data Recorders appear around the game world describing Project Piper. These will remain available even after the event ends.


  •     Rynn challenges players to hotshot missions competing with Rynn.


  •  “Piper Resurrected”: Collect all the data recorders
  • “Path of Atonement”: complete Rynn missions and hotshot

These events will take place over most of the month of May, until Rynn arrives to offer a variety of missions (listed above). This is defiantly a good time to jump back into the game. Now if you excuse me, I have Hellbugs to kill!
