Gameplay?

Are there any in game gameplay videos out there! It's surprising but I haven't heard anything about the actual game functions.

    Game still is under NDA and Trion's marketing seems to be ... low key.

    There are a few videos on youtube released by trion but thats it. As the game is in NDA I will say that I am enjoying it but I will not tell you the fine details of my opinion.

    Huh?  This game has marketing all over the place compared to most MMOs.

    They also have a weekly game session on Fridays where they show off games and answer questions.  I think they have more gameplay available for Defiance than any game under NDA I've ever heard of.  

     

    www.twitch.tv/trionworlds

     

    Check their archived videos(under the videos tab), the titles will say what games they played and in which order... they usually play Defiance at the very end of their sessions. You can see tons of (probably 10+ hours) gameplay there, both PvP and PvE.

    If mmorpgs and progression is your main thing, then this game is not for you. If you're into console shooters, you might be able to stand it, maybe even enjoy, but who knows.

    I was feeling the same way, so I figured I'd just go play a console shooter instead.  Defiance is a noble attempt at bringing a borderlands vibe into an MMORPG.  Some of the "omg it's new so it = awesome" will continue to rave, but I'm in wait and see mode at this point.  Besides that it's connected to a tv show, I still need more of a reason to play it.  I like Trion, so I want to like the game.  I'm just looking for something to hook me it, I guess.

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    I like MMORPGs and progression and I enjoyed the game.  I don't think we've played enough of it to make these sort of broad sweeping statements.  The first couple hours had every bit of progression as any other MMO does.

    In any of the gameplay videos, I dont see any form of grouping or cooperation with any players. If I did see another player they were just there doing the same thing.

     

    Seems like a lot of solo questing boredome.

    The way mmo's were: Community, Exploration, Character Development, Conquest.

    The way mmo's are now : Cut-Scenes,Cut-Scenes, solo Questing, Cut-Scenes...

    I wonder if those videos are a product of cross platform interface issues. It seems PC players are always getting the short hand of the stick with that. I guess we will just have to wait and see what's in store

    Once the NDA is gone this forum will light up with bad reviews like a christmas tree in hell.

    "Over 50 ppl participating in an arkfall"

     

    So basicly the only social interaction is a public quest...

     

    Do I have to Form my own groups?

    Do i need to communicate and coordinate with players in any content?

    Does the game offer more rewards if you are in a group, or taking on group content?

    Is solo play secondary to group oriented content?

     

    If the answer is "no" to any of these questions, I am NOT AT ALL interested.
