Defiance?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Quick search shows nothing.
It's in beta and can be preordered on Steam. It's also made by Trion Worlds, aka the Rift guys. So, are we to expect a lot of WoW mechanics? smile.gif
Can anyone in beta shed some light on this? Is it any good?

Its nothing like WoW,

Its a third person shooter.

Think APB but as an actual MMO involving quests and a storyline smile.gif

I said mechanics, not the whole game.

Anyone from beta who can tell a bit about the game?

I got in for the beta weekend currently running. www.mmorpg.com has a bunch of beta keys to give away. Got mine there.

It is OK - not worth $60 in my opinion. The shooting is fun. It's cool to get new guns and try them out. Although I have only come across 2 enemy types so far. Mutants and bugs. There's a bit of variation (oh, a flying bug!), but only a bit. Just a few hours in, so can't give a full review or anything.

It feels very different from WoW (which I played for 5 years). To get most quests, you travel to the area (pre-marked on your map) and accept it right from there, do your quest, finish, and go. Story quests seem a bit more involved, and are pretty decent.

The combat is fun. Way more fun than any swords and sorcery mmorpg. But the stats/gear/customization is nowhere near as involved. Could use a bit more of that. The talent trees, which is really a grid of skills where everything is open to every "class" seem pretty weak. Nothing was very interesting to be honest. We kept leveling up and just ignoring it to shoot more bad guys. smile.gif

The biggest thing is that it does not seem a week away from release. While there are lots of quests and events and things to shoot, basics like partying and party chat were broken. It took 5 minutes of trying just to get into a group with my wife, and then there was no voice chat that I could figure out and even typed party chat wasn't working. Also, my wife's female character would randomly turn into a guy, then back to a female. Yikes!

I'll look for it on sale around $20-30, but not for $60.

Very interesting. I saw some videos, the game looks interesting, a nice refreshment from typical fantasy setting.
Maybe it will change, there's still 5-6 weeks left until release, although that's not much time to make any drastic changes.

+rep for telling me there's a free beta key out, now I can try it out myself smile.gif

Those have been complained about since beta 1 aswell as the UI. Personally i would wait until those issues are fixed. However I would be surprised if those were not patched on day 1.

Launch is April 2nd. What you see now is what you're getting. I've tried the beta on my PS3 and my PC. It's pretty bad on both.

Hmm, then maybe Firefall is the better choice to spend money on.

The cool thing about this MMO (imo) is that it links the the TV show that will be premiering near the same time the game is going live.

Your actions in game have a chance to impact the story of the TV show, and events from the show have an impact in the MMO. That alone, imo, is what makes this mmo unique and cool. I just hope the execution of this idea, is spot on smile.gif

EDIT: Wanted to add a quote: "From Syfy and Trion Worlds comes a revolution in entertainment: Powerful scripted drama and a massive online world, united for the very first time. Set on a transformed Earth in the near future, events in the show will impact the game, and players will impact the show, creating an unprecedented immersive experience."

I;ve played the beta a little and the pvp is fun but i don't know really what it offers after you beat the story campaign besides the pvp which is fun but very relaxed and casual.
