Defiance is set to hit closed beta later this month and FPS General and Curse have you covered for beta access. The first beta weekend is getting underway on January 18th and grabbing your beta key couldn't be any easier, but first let's take a step back and see what Defiance is all about.
Currently in-development at Trion Worlds, Defiance is a massively multiplayer first-person shooter (MMOFPS). So, what's so special about an MMOFPS? Well, despite the fact that the brilliant minds at Trion Worlds are developing the game, Defiance is actually also an upcoming television program on SyFy channel. The events in the game will mirror the goings-on of the SyFy show, making Defiance an ambitious and unique experience for players and viewers alike, merging two separate (yet decidedly similar) communities in one awesome mashup.
So, how do you get your key? Simply hit up http://www.curse.com/betas/defiance-na and redeem yourself a Defiance beta key - it's that easy. Furthermore, these beta keys will be valid for future beta test weekends as well so don't feel like you're only getting a single-use key here, we've got you covered in the long run as well.
We're also happy to say that we are going to be giving away a wealth of keys for folks in Europe, so make sure you visit http://www.curse.com/betas/defiance-eu to pick up yours today.
The beta starts on January 18th and will run through January 20th for the inaugural beta weekend and we will have keys for this weekend in both Europe and North America. Make sure you visit http://defiance.com/beta/ for more information on what the closed beta entails.
Thanks for reading and we'll see you in the game, Ark Hunters!
