Defiance 2050 offers great value for a free package. Whilst there were many serious lag and crash issues at launch, Trion have shown a commendable willingness to resolve these early on. Despite fun to be had the game isn't perfect, it shows its age in many areas and there's a lot of room for improvement, but 2050 provides a solid base for the team to build upon.
It gets really boring, really fast, and doesn’t give you a reason to keep playing once that feeling sinks in. An empty, bland world and an empty, bland story mean that I can’t recommend this empty, bland game.
Defiance 2050 is an alright MMORPG shooter that does something new while still feeling perhaps too familiar.
Defiance 2050, the relaunch of Trion's 2013 MMO sci-fi shooter, attempts to breathe new life into the 5-year-old title. The introduction of classes, along with the reworking of the skill and weapon systems makes the game accessible to players of other modern shooters, but the lack of new content and the decision to not port over existing characters gives veterans little incentive to leave their old world behind.
