Defiance – Requires No Monthly Subscription, Four New Editions Announced

Questions surfaced about whether or not Defiance would adopt a subscription-based model. While the micro-transaction in the game are still unknown, Sony revealed yesterday that the title will not have a monthly subscription.

While it’s not exactly a free-to-play title, it does follow the standard of pretty much every console multiplayer title out there, meaning that you’ll have to purchase the game at retail price. Lucky you, there will be four different editions to select from.

Sony announced yesterday that the Playstation 3 version (also available for Xbox 360) of the game will be receiving four different additions. The first edition is just the game, except if you pre-order it you’ll get additional items.
