Trion Worlds has revealed the next title set in the Defiance universe. A reimagined sci-fi shooter experience for current gaming hardware, Defiance 2050 takes the story and gameplay of the original game, and gives it a major overhaul.
Twenty years have passed since the catastrophic Arkfall event left millions of Votans dead and Earth terraformed into a nearly unrecognisable post-apocalyptic landscape. In Defiance 2050’s version of San Francisco, players are transported to a dynamic open world where they can explore and fight in skirmishes and story-driven missions on an epic scale. Players will engage in massive cooperative battles with their friends, utilise hundreds of distinct weapons and skills, and take on huge alien threats as they explore transformed futuristic environments.
Defiance 2050 recreates the original game from the ground up to be representative of the current generation of consoles. From updated textures to improved resolutions and framerates, Defiance 2050 aims to be a marked improvement over the original Defiance.

Defiance 2050 is more than just a simple graphical remaster, as the game’s systems have gotten major improvements to create the definitive version of the game. Today’s consoles and PCs have enabled the dev team to implement features and upgrades that fans of the game have been clamoring for, while advancements in hardware allow for action on an even larger scale than before, with more players able to take to the battlefield.
Matt Pettit, the Producer of Defiance 2050 said:
Defiance 2050 has been created with the original game’s community in mind. The team has been listening to feedback and taking some helpful cues from fans to really create the Defiance experience that people have wanted for a long time. Defiance 2050 marks a shift for the game that goes beyond the change from the year 2046 to 2050, and we are absolutely thrilled to hear what people think of it.
