In this DLC, players will find a major additions to the way character progression works, among other things.

The name of the game for this patch is all about weapon bonuses and stats. Previous to patch 1.105, the guns in Defiance would come with various effects, such as bullets that set bad dudes on fire, or a gun that would revive the wielder upon death, which sounds like a pretty awesome gun. Of course, some of these bonuses would be just plain dumb, such as a sniper rifle that did additional melee damage. Well, now that the game has been patched, nobody has to worry about those anymore!

As usual, I'm behind in my DVR watching, so I don't know what happened in the Defiance TV show last night. I have been digging the Syfy series, mostly because it has played out much more like a Western than anything else. I've enjoyed the subtle nods to the MMO shooter counterpart, as well. The most recent server update brings a new element to the western/sci fi/apocalypse adventure: Zombies! Plaguers!
