Time to load your weapon and use alien technology to your advantage! Mutant raiders and hellbugs have taken over the lands and if you want to get your hands on some of those valuable ark resources, you should fight back and make your claim!
Yes, this is indeed the game description for Defiance the game, not the TV series. Even though the sci-fi universe can also be witnessed from the safety of your living room by simply watching a new episode every week, there’s also a way for you to jump into the online world and change the course of history with this free-to-play MMO. Both the hit show and the game are set in the same setting, so be prepared to meet familiar faces and play through story quests that have already been discussed. Trion Worlds (Rift) has plenty of new content for you to experience in Defiance as soon as you take on the role of an ark hunter and draw your nano weapon to protect your planet.
So what do ark hunters do, exactly? They are on a quest to uncover ancient relics and research alien technologies in order to reach new heights and conquer new parts of the Defiance world. While there are main quests that are set in stone and will always be available to your character, so-called arkfalls will spice things up from time to time. These dynamic events are hard to predict, so make sure to always be prepared for new challenges when exploring the science fiction online game: Both alien and human raiders will try to beat you to the punch and snatch up every last rare mineral during these events if your reflexes are not quick enough.
From sniper rifles to combat shotguns: An ark hunter’s pride and glory lies in their weapon. You will have plenty of different firearms to choose from as you play through the futuristic MMORPG. Make a pick and stick to it! As you level up your character, you are able to allocate skill points and specialize in certain fields of expertise. This gives you a chance to set yourself apart from other online players in the free-to-play title, regardless of whether you are participating in team battles or challenging others in competitive player-versus-player deathmatches.
