'Defiance' MMO PC and Console Betas Start Next Week
The gaming side of Defiance, that ambitious MMO/TV show franchise, is stepping into its final beta weekend. On March 22nd, PC gamers will be able to login to the third beta session for the game, which will be the last opportunity to try it out before it officially launches in April.
The beta content will have players jumping into the shoes of genetically modified Ark Hunters, and will be opening up the Mt. Tam and Madera areas. The main focus of this test run is to try out co-op missions in the Cronkhite Bunker and Angel Island, as well as PVP areas in the Freight Yard and Observatory.
Players who participate in the beta weekend will receive an in-game Dodge Challenger when Defiance goes live, which will be drivable on a time trial track in Madera.
Console gamers will likewise have a beta of their own. The PS3 test will run from March 19th to the 25th, while Xbox 360 version will run from the 25th to the 26th.
