MMO shooter Defiance based on the hit SyFy TV show developed by Trion World will be going free to play on June 4th on PC. The date for PS3 is July 15, and Xbox 360’s not announced yet. The free-to-play model will be similar to Rift, with no gated content but many available convenience items and cosmetics for purchase. All new and existing box copy owners will receive boosts, character shots, keys, and currency.
Thankfully the TV show has been canned but fear not if you’re playing the game from TRION.
