Defiance, an open-world action shooter by Trion Worlds tied to the upcoming TV show of the same name, will be entering its beta stage on the PC this January 18.
Those participating in “Advanced Mission Beta 1” will play the role of a genetically enhanced, part treasure hunter, part mercenary known as an Ark Hunter. You will be transported to a futuristic San Fransisco bay area where your mission is to recover valuable alien technology to sell to the highest bidder.
Participating in the beta will grant players “full access to the tutorial, the expansive terraformed terrain of Mt. Tam, the Waterfront competitive multiplayer map, and the fierce Shadow War open world competitive multiplayer and Arkfall massive co-op boss battles.”
