    MMO Shooter Defiance Coming to PS3, No Monthly Fee



    This April, fire up your PlayStation 3 and dive into Defiance: a massive open-world third person shooter in development at Trion Worlds. Today, we announced a full array of editions (and some sweet pre-order bonuses) but before we dive into that, let me give you a rundown on what Defiance is all about.
    Decades ago, arks that carried the six species of the Votanis Collective to Earth. Their star system had been destroyed and they needed a new home. Unfortunately, their peaceful intentions led to a planet-wide war that culminated in the complete destruction of their ships. Their great terraforming machines crashed to earth and the face of our world was changed forever.
    Fifteen years later, you take on the role of an ark hunter, a specialized scavenger who digs through the rubble of the fallen arks to uncover advanced technology, weapons, and other valuable loot. You have been hired by Von Bach Industries to find powerful ark technology capable of repairing our now broken planet. Armed with special abilities provided to you by your EGO (a nano-device that is injected directly into your body) you must brave the dangerous Bay Area frontier in order to find arktech. To survive, you will need to upgrade your EGO, increase your power level, and customize your weapons. To succeed, you will need the help of others. This is not a world where you can go it alone.

    Defiance is a shooter. Defiance is an MMO. Defiance is a game where you can group up with your friends – be it two, three, or thirty, and traverse the expanse of a terraformed San Francisco Bay area. You’ll encounter thousands of players in-game with you. With your friends, and the folks you meet throughout the course of your journey, you’ll explore the world of Defiance and unravel the story that is entwined with a Syfy series (coming to TV this April).
    Together, you and your fellow Ark Hunters will take on Arkfalls: massive, dynamic events that unfold in the world at any moment and need dozens (or more) players to defeat them. You’ll happen upon Shadow Wars: huge competitive battles with up to 96 players duking it out. You’ll see these Shadow Wars unfold as you play through regular missions and can choose to jump in at any time (or watch from a hilltop, safe from the gunfighting but missing out on the spoils of victory.) We also have more traditional competitive maps for smaller skirmishes and, for those who enjoy co-op play more than face-to-face carnage, we have small group co-op instances where you and your friends can group up, strategize, and take down hulking bosses.
    Let’s get to the nitty gritty of today’s announcement. As of today, you can preorder four different editions of Defiance for the PlayStation 3. And to confirm, Defiance does not have a monthly subscription. Grab the game, jump into the world, and enjoy.

    • Outlander outfit helps you blend in with the locals

    I'll try it since it's free but I would rather have more MMORPGs than MMOFPS'/MMOTPS'.

    A proper MMOFPS would be too amazing but sadly hasn't been done yet. This looks cool too but I'd prefer more of a realistic war sim.

    DUST 514 is your game then. :P

    I've had my eye on this for awhile. I want to see how the reviews pan out though. Between EVE and DUST though, I'm pretty set MMO wise.

    If you are able to play/have an interest in playing PC games it could be worth checking out Planetside 2. An MMOFPS (Can't get used to that acronym) with 2000 players per map. Though it isn't realistic. It has everything from infantry, vehicle and air support that are all player controlled. Probably best to think of it as a futuristic sci-fi battlefield with a bit more team-work.

    It is a Sony, or at least a SOE, game so who knows, it may come to the PS3/PS4 one day.

    I'm keep my eyes peeled for that and will check it out once it lands but I'm thinking more like BF with MMO features...though I don't actually want BF with those features...I want something that's realistic like that. BF would annoy the crap out of me with its slow movements lol. Even like a third person shooter would be nice.

    You'd think Sony would've come out with a proper EverQuest sequel for the PS3...pshhh.

    Yea I totally loved the trailer of this game...it's right up my alley, I do like sci-fi shooters like Halo and this looks something like that. I'm in process of building a new computer which will be for gaming but I wanna wait and see how long PS/Xbox will take to come out with the next iterations this May. Still though I wanna have a gaming computer because PC is becoming interesting again as these consoles age.

    Seeing PlanetSide 2, it gives me reassurance that we have good things coming in next-gen.

    Oh no no no I assure you my friend, this won't be anything like BL. There's a huge difference here due to player count and likely a true open-ended map.

    Defiance looks good, MMO games seem far to rare for the PS3, so any that do come along are good news. I must say it looks a lot like Starhawk, and the M/P for that was a big disappointment.

    @ Sufi I known what you mean about wanting a realistic MMOFPS. Why not A WW2 based game, KInda like MAG but without the $#@!ty gameplay, awful graphics and massive walk/run to get back in the action.
