Defiance Pre-Order Details Revealed

defiance

Way back in April, we reported on Defiance, a new online shooter from Trion Worlds that’s meant to work in conjunction with a new television series on SyFy. Today, bonuses for pre-ordering the April-slated game have been unveiled. So what’s the deal?

Putting down $5 for a pre-order for the regular, $59.99 edition of the game gets you this jazz:

  • Outlander outfit helps you blend in with the locals
  • Iron Demon title lets potential enemies know you are not to be messed with
  • Retailer Exclusive pre-order weapon that gives you a leg up out of the gate
  • 3-Day XP boost helps establish you on the battlefield
  • Beta Invitation – get in the game early!

For $99, there are two different special versions of Defiance, the “Digital Deluxe Edition,” as well as the physical “Collector’s Edition.” LOOK:

Defiance Digital Deluxe Edition ($99)

  • Rare VBI Sentinel Shield helps you never let your guard down
  • In-game title: Badlands Drifter
  • Ark Infiltrator outfit – look good while crackin’ skulls
  • Hydra heavy weapon helps you bring the boom early
  • +5 Increased inventory space – don’t leave home without it
  • 30-Day scrip boost – more everything!
  • 30-Day XP boost – level up faster!
  • Lock Box – sweet random rewards!

Defiance Collector’s Edition ($99)

  • Unique Defiance Collectors Box
  • CD soundtrack – from legendary composer Bear McCreary
  • Exclusive Art of Defiance book – unique stills and never-before-seen renders
  • Exclusive Hellbug statue
  • An official Von Bach Industries contract
  • Defiance Post Cards and stickers
  • Bonus “Making of Defiance” DVD
  • Rare VBI Sentinel Shield helps you never let your guard down
  • In-game title: Badlands Drifter
  • Ark Infiltrator outfit
  • Hydra heavy weapon helps you bring the boom early
  • +5 Increased inventory space it
  • Lock Box
  • 7-Day scrip boost
  • 7-Day XP boost

Then there’s the $149 “Ultimate Edition,” which is a GameStop exclusive, and has the same stuff as the “Collector’s Edition” above, plus this junk. Behold:

  • Exclusive Defiance Messenger Bag
  • Exclusive in-game title: Pale Wars Ronin
  • One Year Season Pass (Premium DLC) for Xbox 360, Windows PC, and PlayStation 3 1200 Bits

Wow. Lots of options! Pretty impressive…considering this is a brand new franchise that hasn’t had much hype since its initial announcement last year (unless I’ve just missed all of it). As cool as I think an active, TV-show linked video game might be, I’m a little skeptical that too many people will take advantage of all these different collectors’ editions. Unless, of course, you’re a big Trion Worlds fan…in that case, buy away. What do you think? Are you into this? Stoked?
