    This was predictable.  Given how matters stand at Trion, I wonder what the next step will be.

    Yes, it sucks. When you posted that it will go F2P back then you got a warning or a ban.

    Now they cheer upon it as if it is the best thing to ever happen to the game.

    well at least trion makes there games more true to F2P than most, Rift is by far the best F2P I have played, compaired to others with cash shop blocks and such.

    Author & Editor please verify facts

    When is Defiance going free-to-play?

     

    Defiance will go free-to-play on June 4 for PC. We are targeting July 15 for PS3™ and currently working with Microsoft on plans for Defiance Free-to-Play on Xbox 360®.

    The reason they are working on plans with microsoft is because all you have to do to play the game on the 360 is buy the game for $10. So they are not bringing it to the 360 and the PS4 was never mentioned.

    Indeed, I got a 3 day temp ban for 'trolling' and such, people telling me that "Defiance is different than Rift" and bam, here we are.

     

    I in less than 6 months the  game went from 59.99$ to 9.99$, it wasn't hard to figure out what happened next :P

    Someone lied at Trion when they said Defiance was popular.

    They should have given you a cookie for telling them that their own game wouldn't succeed? I don't understand what else you were looking for. 

     

    Played the beta, I'll be looking to give this game a shot.

    This one was an obvious stinker.  Everyone predicted this, don't feel special about it.

    Just to question the philosophy. Army of Socrates.

    I enjoyed the beta, but it had issues that werent fixed. I did buy the game for like 5 to 10 dollars, but never installed it. I love the tv show though!

    I bought the game and the DLC on pre-order, by far the singular most stupid thing I've ever done.  Because of how the patch system worked and the terribly slow speeds I got from their servers it took 2 weeks just to download the game which then failed to install and made me download the whole 50+GB again.  Customer service was absolutely shocking.  Because I managed to login for 8 hours, not play just login, they wouldn't give me a refund on the game or the DLC package.

     

    Will never touch Trion again, they are the worst scum alive.  In fact, thanks to them I no longer pre-order, found games, or do Kickstart.

    It was already B2P with prices as low as $4.99 on special once or twice.

    It was already functionally F2P already, for all intents and purposes, so who cares?

  • RolleZRolleZ FalkenbergPosts: 37Member Uncommon
    Have they fixed the god awful FOV on the PC?
  • TheLizardbonesTheLizardbones Arkham, VAPosts: 10,910Member

    How did the game do with the tie-in to the show?  Did they do it and it turned out, "Meh", or did they not really get that off the ground?

     

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    You know if you need your ego stroked, maybe you should just ask.  Might be easier going the direct route.

    Am I reading this correctly, or was it a typo? Is it coming to PS4?

    Right now the game cost a few dollars on steam with everything included. As F2P it will have a "voluntary" subscription which mean that you will have to pay to access parts of the game and that stuff will be sold in an itemshop.

    I guess we define freedom different ways...
