Hey everyone,

If you receive the Windows 10 Creator Update you'll likely experience issues launching Defiance. In most cases you'll see a white screen when launching the game and it will quickly close down. We have a discussion on this issue here.

We are working to get this addressed as quickly as possible and have made progress on a fix internally. This fix will still need additional testing by dev and QA to confirm it is working before it can be released. Our goal is to get this released early next week but we can't lock in a specific time frame until we've finished testing.

If you're able to avoid installing this Windows 10 update for the time being you should be able to play normally. If you already have the Creator update we'll post more details on the upcoming patch once we have the fix in place and ready to go.

Thanks very much,
Fasti

Update 1 - We're granting the anniversary gifts to eligible players now but the process is taking longer than we'd like. Rather than leaving the game locked for several additional hours we're going to come back online now.

However, this means that many players will receive the gifts while they are online and will be unable to select which character receives them. To avoid running into this issue please log into the game on the character you want to receive the extra 30 Inventory slots.


Greetings ark hunters,

We're bringing Defiance offline on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 10 AM PDT (5 PM GMT) for Armistice Hotfix #3.

Downtime should last for approximately 2 hours.

If we need more time, or come back online early, we'll update this post.

Thanks!

Patch Note


  • Fixed an issue causing Colony Courtship jackpots to drop
  • Fixed an issue causing the Apocalypse weapon to occasionally not deal damage (previous fix was not properly applied)

Ark hunters,

Armistice is taking the celebration to a new level with special prizes for players who stop in to celebrate with us!

Every ark hunter who logs into Defiance for the final weekend of Armistice will receive 3 days of Patron status!

Login any time between 12PM PDT on Friday, March 31st and 12AM PDT on Monday, April 3rd to receive the Patron time.

This weekend is also your last chance to stock up on Armistice Bargain Boxes and enjoy the ongoing Armistice event.



Some of the biggest clans in Defiance are running events and giving out special prizes during this 4 year anniversary weekend.

This is also a great time to return to the game because many eligible players will receive additional rewards just for coming back to Defiance!

Return to the New Frontier and join us for the finale of the biggest celebration of the year!
Defiance - TrionFasti


Pick up the spectacular Armistice Bargain Boxes all weekend until Monday at 12AM PDT (7AM GMT)!

The super rare weapons from the Armistice Bargain Box have to be seen to be believed. Seriously, these will blow your mind!

Sol Destroyer is a highly modified BMG that fires an extremely powerful particle beam to deal MASSIVE DAMAGE!



Apocalypse isn’t just a clever name. This is a Nuclear Rocket Launcher. We’ll let that sink in for a moment. You’ll need to charge this weapon up to unleash the full fury of the mushroom cloud of destruction.
