Trion Worlds revealed today the dates for the upcoming closed beta test for Defiance 2050, its open-world sci-fi shooter launching this Summer. The Defiance 2050 closed beta test will run the weekend of April 20 – 22. In the beta, players will be able to play through the Defiance 2050 experience up to level 25, as well as explore the areas of Mount Tam and Madera.
This closed beta promises to offer up exciting story-based missions as well as give players a taste of the large-scale epic battles that they can expect when Defiance 2050 launches later this Summer.
Matt Pettit, producer of Defiance 2050, said:
“Getting players into the game as soon as possible is hugely important for us. We are creating Defiance 2050 with player feedback in mind, so this beta test is going to be essential for getting information from Defiance fans on where they would like to see us improve and where they’d like to us take the game.”
As the press release reads, Defiance 2050 recreates the original game from the ground up, offering an experience that is the definitive Defiance experience in every way. Today’s consoles and PCs enable the dev team to implement features and upgrades that fans of the game have been clamoring for. Advancements in hardware allow for action on an even larger scale than before, with more players able to take to the battlefield in white-knuckled combat.
More than just a simple graphical remaster, Defiance 2050 is a major update to the original game’s systems, which have been streamlined and modernized. Environments are bigger and better than ever, enemies are even more ruthless, and weaponry is more adaptable to the player’s style.
