Today, all roads (and quads, and EGOs) lead to one place, ark hunters: Silicon Valley, home of Karl Von Bach’s mysterious Pilgrims of the Guiding Light and the first-ever world expansion for Defiance!

It’s a monumental occasion with story lines playing out both in-game and on the show: How did Von Bach discover a new EGO, and what is his cult’s intent? What will it mean for you – and for your favorite characters – on both sides of the Storm Divide?

Find out in missions featuring new enemies, challenges, discoveries, and rewards across Silicon Valley’s zone’s sweeping, post-apocalyptic expanse – and do it all for free!

This world expansion is available now for all players on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Log in and live the adventure today!

FEATURES

World Expansion: Silicon Valley
Karl Von Bach and the Pilgrims of the Guiding Light eagerly await your arrival. Almost … too eagerly. The valley is still crawling with Grid and not all is what it seems. Unravel its mysteries from the eerie edge of Pacifica to cultist temples guarding key areas of interest on either side of the buckled San Andreas Fault!

New Missions: The Guiding Light
Dive into five new missions exploring the perils of Silicon Valley and the cult that calls it home. Are the Pilgrims of the Guiding Light simply a New Earth oddity, or do they hold a sinister purpose?

New Dynamic Events: Invasions
The Grid are using converted 99ers to erect Evangel devices across the zone. These constructs, if left unchecked, will turn its key areas into hives of Grid activity. Can you stop the Grid before they conquer the valley?

New Synergies and Outfits: Corporate Espionage
We’re proud to introduce the Corporate Espionage Lock Box. Themed after the works of William Gibson, these lock boxes contain vanity outfits and headgear as well as weapons and shields loaded with three new synergies.

Firewall turns ark hunters into living tanks by boosting their defenses, Wetwork bolsters damage output for the user and their allies, and The Way of Change encourages players to swap between melee and ranged attacks, boosting damage to one when you use the other.

New Equipment Modifier: Encryption
Certain advanced weapons and shields will now drop with the Encrypted trait, which confers a 3% bonus to damage or capacity. Additionally, when the Salvage Matrix is used to increase the rarity level of a shield or weapon, it will become Encrypted. This can only happen once; the Salvage Matrix will not be able to increase the rarity level of items that are already Encrypted.

EGO Rating Cap: 5900
Max EGO rating has been increased to 5900, which is possible to achieve without completing all Pursuits. Fear not: When the max rating is increased again, any additional points you’ve earned will automatically be added to your rating!

Be sure to read the full patch notes on the forums!

Ark hunters,

Fuel up your roller and stock up on ammo because your world is about to get a whole lot bigger: just in time for Season 2 of the Syfy series, an entire planet’s worth of EGO users, arkfall chasers, and most importantly Defiance fans are joining the fray!

We’re excited to announce that Trion Worlds’ post-apocalyptic massively co-op online cyberwestern shooter will be adding a new descriptor to its already meaty description: Defiance is going to become free-to-play. Starting June 4 on PC and mid-July on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, players will be able to download the Defiance client and experience the entire Bay Area storyline, original end-game content, and future missions completely for free.

To learn more about this, please see the announcement on the Defiance website:
