Defiance Update 1.014 Release Today, Dev Blog Reveals First DLC Contents

Trion Worlds working hard for all co-op gamers out there.

Slowly but surely, things are getting better for the Defiance video game universe. Trion World’s commitment to providing the best possible experience for everyone hasn’t changed since their rocky release of the game, releasing a brand new patch to the public, Title Update 1.014.

While this patch doesn’t clean up every server issue that is plaguing the game (which should hopefully be fixed by patch 1.020), it has fixed quite a bit so far. There are no details for the following patch right now, but they will be revealed very soon. Until then, read on for the latest list of the patch notes:

Title Update 1.014 Fixes:

- Freight Yard is back... again.
- Svushinnira, “the rain of pollution”, grows ever more severe. Horribly mutated Hellbugs dot the Paradise landscape as the Hellbug mating season continues. Nano-effect imbued Hellbugs are now more common and many familiar encounters now carry a new and dangerous change. This includes more Electric and Syphon Monarchs and mutated Hellbugs now appearing at Parraba Ranch, Happy Pow, Bug Basin, Ridgecrest Mine, Big Stone Reach, and Diablo Station
- Completing Ranks of Echelon now gives you a second outfit to equip in competitive matches
- Some EGO rating 1900 to 2000 weapons were not getting their rarity bonus’s appropriately. This is now fixed
- Fixed a crash that could occur when resetting missions
- Fixed a crash associated with Dogtown Mine
- Removed some of the level up spam that happened upon load in
- Vehicles can now only be found as specials on vehicle vendors
- Vehicle special price has been increased
- Additional Challenger variants added
- Mine 99 rewards have been reducedThere was an incorrectly applied magazine mod adjustment that went live, but an additional pre-patch setting application has been rolled out and should be live with gamers by now. Stay tuned for 1.020 updates as we have them.

In addition, Trion Worlds has confirmed that a total of 5 DLC bundles will be arriving this year for Defiance. Each of these DLC will be introduced with three different parts to them: a free one, a paid one, and a store update. Lots of in-game performance enhancements, along with the start of TV tie-in components will be coming to the first DLC. An all new, open world game mode being called “Sieges” will be included to the future DLC as well, with more modes to come later on. Currently the developers are calling the first DLC, “Enter the Castithan”, as gamers will be able to play as the Castithan race for the first time. Here are the details on Defiance’s DLC #1:
