Ho-ho-hopefully you like fighting the Volge in Defiance and Defiance 2050 because that’s the game’s Christmas event this year. Yes, running until January 11th, both games are summoning special Arkfalls with 2050 offering a selection of new prototype weaponry and gear while the original game offers special contracts to clear. It wouldn’t quite be right to say that the Volge are trying to steal the holidays, but if that helps motivate you to focus your fire, no one’s going to say otherwise.
Of course, this is all assuming that you’re not suffering from server issues, something the designers have acknowledged is hitting players in general and PlayStation 3 users in particular. This is apparently a result of developing in an older environment and necessary server moves, but by way of compensation anyone who logs in between now and the end of the year to either game will get a small compensation pack of goodies. Here’s hoping that ameliorates the server issues.
