Take a chance on Defiance now that it's going free-to-play

7:00 PM on 05.01.2014 // Brittany Vincent

Honey, I'm now free! Take a chance on me!

To me, Defiance always looked like one of those games I'd probably enjoy a lot more if I didn't have to pay a monthly fee for it. The show didn't strike me as too great, but I figured I'd give the game a go if it ever went down in price or went free. I guess it's time to put my money where my mouth is, as Trion Worlds announced yesterday that beginning June, Defiance will go free-to-play on PC, with the PlayStation 3 version to follow on July 15. Xbox 360 players might have to wait a little longer, as Trion is still discussing details when it comes to that version.

Anyone who picks up a new copy of Defiance, whether retail or digital, will receive a boatload of goodies, such as 1,000 Arkforge, 4 character slots, 75 Ark Keycodes, 70 inventory slots, and 5 loadouts. They'll also receive thirty days of Paradise Patron status when Defiance officially goes F2P. And don't worry, current owners -- you'll all be getting these bonuses as well.

Paradise Patrons are given special privileges such as a 10% store discount, a grab-bag of boosts or Arkforge, and special boosts to XP, reputation, and salvage rates that sound pretty useful, but I wouldn't know for sure because I've never played. Woo, stuff!

Are you thinking about taking the plunge now that Defiance is joining the ranks of The Old Republic? Let us know how you fare.
