Arktech. Some die for it – everyone kills for it.

Defiance for PC is a futuristic online shooter produced in conjunction with the new SyFy channel TV show, where the actions and events of one will impact the other!

Set in a harsh future where humans and aliens scavenge and survive together, Defiance is a massive open-world game where thousands of online players will scour the Earth, competing for the remaining alien technology.

Key Features of Defiance for PC

  • Enter a brave new world where humans and aliens survive together
  • Create, customise and level-up your character
  • Upgrade with new powers and abilities thanks to the alien EGO implant
  • Go on the hunt alone or with others in varied missions and challenges
  • Take on other players in massive online battles and dynamic Arkfall events
  • Discover a wealth of new enemies – human, alien and beyond!
  • Interact with the Defiance TV show in exciting new ways

Defiance takes you to a future Earth, one that has been terraformed and colonised by the Votans, a collection of alien species from the Votan systerm. The Votans were pursued to Earth by an even deadlier alien threat, which led to a terrible accident that changed the Earth forever and left a wealth of alien technology – Arktech – scattered throughout the world.

The San Francisco of Defiance is very much like a new frontier, a place where humans and aliens survive and scavenge together, and not always peacefully. The hostility and rivalry between the various races is enhanced by the hundreds of other players joining you in the online world of Defiance, and matched by a constantly evolving environment. This is perhaps the largest third-person shooter you'll ever experience.

Defiance is more than just a shooter, though, embracing many of the features of massively multiplayer online role-playing game. In Defiance, you will create your own character based on a choice of character classes and with a choice of races, both human and alien. Modify your appearance to stand out from the hundreds of other players, choose your skills and weapions, and join the fray!

As the game advances you'll get the chance to level up, unlocking new perks to further make your character your own. Further customisation options come from the various weapons and other equipment you will loot throughout the game, with new guns and upgrades and the choice of five different loadouts to suit your playing style.

Shoot the way you want, with a multitude of weapons, armour, and special abilities that evolve with experience. Custom character creation means you can play as human or alien, modifying your appearance to become a unique citizen of the Defiance world.

The Votan influence on the world in Defiance also includes the EGO, or Environmental Guardian Online, which can give you the power to expand beyond your physical limits. This alien AI implant will fuse with your character's body, providing instant intelligence of the environment around you and unlocking the dormant potential for super-human powers held within human DNA.  

Both human and Votan characters can have different powers enhanced by EGO. Blur will give you enhanced speed, Cloak will render you virtually invisible to the enemy, Decoy will create a holographic copy of you and Overcharge will add a bionetic bonus to your ammunition. All EGO powers only work for a limited time, but as you upgrade your character and your EGO, the durability of these powers will increase.

Once you've created your character, it's time to join the fray. Defiance offers a wealth of missions for you to undertake as one of the Ark Hunters, an Earth Republic-funded expedition tasked with finding an ancient relic somewhere in the San Francisco Bay area. As an Ark Hunter, you'll join with – or compete with – other players searching for this artefact by gathering information and other items of Arktech, and thwarting alien threats.

As well as the main mission, there are also plenty of side missions and challenges for you to test your skills as a scavenger or as a combatant, as well as giving you the chance to earn extra cash to help you level up – the Bay Area is home to several influential business owners who will issue contracts to Ark Hunters, and the better you fulfil these contracts, the more you'll be offered. All the missions in Defiance are scaled and timed to match the number of players present at any one time, so there'll always be a chance to muck in with others – or play solo if you prefer.

Outside of the missions, Defiance offers massive multiplayer battles for you to really prove your skills on the battlefield. After all, Ark Hunting is a competitive business, and what better way to eliminate the competition than with brutal combat! Go toe to toe with dozens of other players in a range of multiplayer modes including team battles and all-out deathmatches.

If you find yourself in the vicinity of certain items of Arktech, you may even be lucky enough to be chosen to join the ongoing Shadow War. If you choose to accept the offer, you'll become a Shadow Operative working for a private military company known only as Echelon. Falling into one of two teams, Echelon will send you to battle each other and be the team to retrieve the important Arktech. A victory in a Shadow War will earn you Echelon credits to be used on unique weapons, armour and gear – and a place on the Echelon mercenary leaderboards. It pays to get your hands a little dirty…

There are also dynamic events called Arkfalls that can't be ignored by any players online at the time. The sky will turn black and the environment whips up into a violent torrent of debris as pieces of Arktech fall from the sky. A brave Ark Hunter or two can handle a minor Arkfall – but the major ones will attract a horde of the beastly enemies, complete with a massive guardian creature, and these foes can only be bested by an army of Ark Hunters working together – and sharing the spoils of victory.

Of course, it's not just the other players you need to watch out for. The frontier land of Defiance is home to a wide range of enemies of all kinds in a classic survival of the fittest where it’s best to shoot first and ask questions… well, never!

First up are the Mutants, former human soldiers and scientists twisted into mindless monstrosities. The Ninety-Niners also used to be human – these former Miners sacrificing their humanity for cyborg enhancements in their quest for minerals and profit. The Raiders are an interspecies horder of ruthless scavengers, preying on weak frontier towns. The Scrappers are hostile but highly intelligent robots constructed from scrap. Finally are the Hellbugs - voracious, chitinous creatures created by the terraforming of Earth.

On top of all this, Defiance the video game is ground-breaking in the way it will interact with the Defiance the TV show. The events of the show will impact the online world of the game in real-time, and your character may even cross paths with characters from the show, like series lawkeeper Joshua Nolan. Plus, events and characters from the game – including yours – could even show up in the TV show!
