What is Defiance?|
For those that don't know, the concept of Defiance is a sci-fi universe in 2 parts, a TV show set in St. Louis, and a game set in San Francisco. A group of alien races known as the Votans came to Earth in massive ships called Arks to ask if they could bunk up with us. Years of negotiations began, until their ships started blowing up. Why wasn't clear, but it forced them to take direct action and the Pale War began.
However, after years of fighting, something happened at the Battle of Defiance. Many soldiers on both side had enough, and decided to stop fighting. They banded together and started to save people trapped in the rubble they'd created. That was the turning point.
So the game will take place after that war. The Arks that were destroyed in orbit rained down terraforming technology that changed Earth into a far more alien landscape, as well as bringing many forms of hostile such as Hellbugs.
But a lot of the debris from those ship remained in orbit, and they rain down now and again in what are known as Ark Falls. The game casts you as an Ark Hunter, employed by Von Bach Industries to retrieve technology from Ark Falls.
The game is a shooter MMO, more heavily edged toward the shooter side. There's all the things you'd expect from a shooter, so there's plenty of PvP and co-op maps, as well as the MMO side with an open San Francisco to explore - you can opt in to the Shadow War open PvP if you wish too
I'm mostly just trying to drum up some interest as it'd be great to have more EGers hunting Ark Tech with me There are already a good few of us about.
