Defiance 2050 is a surprise sequel to Defiance, Human Head Studios’ 2013 sci-fi persistent world massively multiplayer shooter, which promises massive co-op battles, dynamic open environments and a huge selection of weapons to blast those aliens with.
Long before Destiny brought massively multiplayer sci-fi shooters to the masses, Defiance was launched to some success on PC, PS3 and Xbox One. Set decades in the future, players took on the role of Ark Hunters who searched the now terraformed San Francisco Bay area for advanced alien technology while fending off alien attacks. The newly announced sequel looks set to offer a complete reimagining of the Defiance experience that allows you to continue the fight as players join forces and take part in some massive battles.
There’s not much more information available about Defiance 2050 at the moment and it’s doubtful this one will be accompanied by a TV show after the last one was cancelled in 2015, but the trailer looks great and the original game was fun, if a little flawed. The horsepower of the current gen of consoles/PCs should allow for some much larger scale battles and make it feel like a much more epic sci-fi experience. Sign up for the Beta now for a chance to go hunting arks and blasting aliens early!
