    The console versions are probably going to be dead in the water very, very quickly. Thanks to Sony and Microsoft doing their usual bitchfighting, there isn't any cross-platform stuff going on.

    I just preordered. What should I be doing now?

    Yeah, I was going to say

    PC or PS3 is entirely a matter of "Do you want to play with other people for longer than a month or so"

    That is a good point, the PS3 version will do well probably. But not the 360 version.

    Well, I just got to code 98 before it errored out and reset me down to zero. I will try again later.

    It didn't actually reset you to 0, it's just showing that while that server craps itself. Did the same to me.

    What is this I don't even.

    So unless I'm mistaken, apparently the Storm Legion expansion will add a free month onto your Rift account?

    Yeah, yeah. Steam is where it's at. I've seen some people getting from a shady g2key place or whatever for... A stupidly cheap price, like "So cheap I'm afraid something fishy is going on".

    You can preload right now, the release downloader is in your Trion games. Just add the two Steam codes to your Trion account, assuming Steam.

    I just checked the two such places I know of, which the one time I used one provided me with a legit key that was somehow... loopholed as a result of the cheap prices to buy this stuff in Asian countries. Neither seems to be offering the game amazingly cheap, mostly on par with GMG.

    What is this I don't even.

    For the people who preordered from Steam, I literally just got my Rift copy in my inventory.

    Edit: Oddly enough, I dont have to accept it. I can gift it out as well, it looks like, despite not actually owning it before hand.

    It's never going to run through steam.

    It will in basically the same way Rift did, unless I've missed some announcement on the subject.

    Which is to say it'll have the overlay and track play time and what have you.

    Did anyone figure out a way to disable the [redacted] ingame voice while they were beta-ing?

    Options, audio, voice, off. It likes to turn itself back on when you log on again, though, even though the setting still shows off.

    One last question, is it split into different servers? What server are the EU folks going for? any ideas?

  • ArthilArthil Registered User regular
    At least for the Open Beta, there didn't appear to be server selection.

    Well, there you go. Between Arkfall codes, Steam tiers and the DDE, I've got a nice grouping of bonuses to start out with.

    So the Season Pass is up on Steam now, 25% until April 2nd for $29.99 (39.99 after that date). I guess maybe the discount off the Season Pass included in the pre-order might just be that 25% but it'll last longer? I doubt we'd see a discount plus that 25% off stacked.

    Season Pass:
    The Defiance Season Pass is the ultimate content package for the true Ark Hunter! Players who want to save big on the first 5 DLC packs rolling out after launch. Gamers will get a massive amount of content including a new playable alien species, new weapons and vehicles, missions, and rewards, plus a two bonus items, an exclusive Hellbug hat and a Lock Box.

    Seems decent. I would like to see what alien race and stuff is included before I decide.

    Hmm. If the discount is whether you buy the game from steam or not, one could buy the core game from GMG then the season pass from steam for ultimate savings, yeah?

    What is this I don't even.

    I don't think so, the Season Pass is listed as DLC for Defiance so, to buy it you must own Defiance on Steam first.

    I hope the 25% off it is now isn't actually the Tier 3 reward. I mean, 25% off is nice and would be good but I'd hope it would give me a longer chance to buy it then just til Tuesday.

    Edit: I had the $29.99 now and I was going to get the Season Pass anywho so I picked it up.

    Based on this, I think if it just launches the launcher you can pre-load it happily and Steam will be fine with it, although it will create a new launcher, all the files will probably end up in the same place, or you can just copy them over and restart the launcher, avoiding the lengthy download on release date. I'm quite excited about going into this mostly blind

    It's just split into regions - NA, EU, maybe more. It's all one big mega-server for the region, with phased instances, and when you group up you can join the leader's phase.

    I'll probably roll with you NA chaps.

    Sounds like a plan, unless lag is some kind of crazy problem I'll come onto NA too.

    That is an expensive season pass, I wonder how much stuff it'll be.

    The description doesn't exactly fill me with confidence.

    Picked this up. Mans shooting will be had.

    Do we have any plans as to establishing a proper sowing circle for our fair towne defence, or is it gun potluck time?

    Unless something blows me away, chances are I'll stick with my LMG/Medigun combo most of the time. 100 round clip with Overcharge induced reload... yummy. Mooks will be turned red and then quickly dropped for the mooks they are. Muhahaha.
