New #Defiance TV Tie In Missions are now live!— Lance James (@Myll_Erik) May 13, 2013
Trion Worlds has released patch 1.020 for Defiance, unofficially known as the TV tie-in patch. The patch, so named for its inclusion of crossover events from the popular SyFy program of the same name.
Defiance Producer Nathan Richardsson had the following to say earlier this week:
As proof of us striving towards being better we have another major update coming, known as the TV Tie-in or Patch 1.020, and it’s coming out this month. It has further bug fixes, improvements, as well as new TV Tie-ins – one of which will utilize a new open world game mode called Sieges. Details are obviously slim, but it’s a crossover event so that should give you an indication of what this game mode entails in future DLCs.
