Just a reminder that today marks the first day of Defiance's very first beta weekend, giving a handful of lucky players a chance to explore the game and see what it's all about. On top of that, not only are you getting early access to the game, but you're actually helping the team at Trion Worlds make Defiance better with your feedback.
If you're curious about how to get in on the beta and which platforms it is on, Trion Worlds has put together a quick Q&A over on their Facebook page:
Q: Where do I download the beta client?
A: Details about the beta will be communicated via email to the address on your Trion Worlds account. Please make sure to add email@example.com to your Safe Senders list to ensure delivery!
Q: Is the beta under NDA?
A: Yes, the Defiance beta test is under NDA. Please keep all details regarding the Defiance beta out of public channels, as players who break the NDA will be removed from future Defiance betas.
Q: I received a Defiance beta code; what do I do next?
A: IF you get a beta code, go to the Apply Code page at TrionWorlds.com: https://defiance.trionworlds.com/commerce/voucher/redeem-voucher-flow. Once you have been accepted into beta, you will receive a beta invite email which will take you through the rest of the simple steps to access and download the beta client.
Please note, if you have already received a beta invite email, you are signed up for the beta and DO NOT REQUIRE a beta key.
Q: What platform is the Defiance beta for?
A: The first beta is for PC players. However, future beta tests will include PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360® players, so stay tuned to http://www.defiance.com/beta for further details.
Q: Where are the beta forums located?
A: The Defiance beta forums are located at: http://beta.forums.defiance.com/cas_login.php?do=login&url=/
The forum will be accessible once your beta access has been confirmed via email.
