Defiance Enter the Castithan DLC Detailed and More


Defiance may have suffered from a rocky start, but it seems the game/TV show is starting to gain momentum. In addition to SyFy picking up the show for another season, the game’s executive producer Nathan Richardsson has detailed the first DLC, which he’s unofficially calling Enter the Castithan, as well as what else is to come. Below you’ll find a detailed breakdown of which content will be free and which will fall under the “Premium” category, requiring a small amount of your real-life money to obtain.

ENTER THE CASTITHAN (or imagine flashy name that evoke deep emotions)

You get this when you buy the DLC for $10:

This is how Trion plans on divvying up their DLCs: free, paid and store update components. It was stated that this should give us all an idea of how the next four DLCs, which are planned to be released within a year, will be handled. The last bit of news that Richardsson provided was that Patch 1.020 is on its way and will provide a new game mode titled Sieges, which will be a crossover event. We’ll have more details for you on this new mode and the first DLC’s release date as they become available.
