A mysterious illness has found its way to Defiance.
The Bay area in Defiance has been infected. In a new event for the game, titled Sickness Hits The Bay, Defiance players must figure out where a virus came from and how to stop it.
"A mystery sickness is spreading across the Bay area!" said Trion Worlds. "In an effort to find out what is happening, triage centers have been established at both Top Notch and Shandu's Consulate. No one knows what this sickness is just yet, but possibly you can help Eren find a cure."
The new in-game event features one new pursuit called Hunting The Cure. The event also tasks Ark Hunters with collecting three data recorders from Iron Demon Ranch, Shondu's Consulate, and Top Notch Toolworks that will boost their EGO rating.
There's no word yet on how long this content will be available, but I'm guessing we'll see a crossover event with the Defiance TV show regarding the illness or its cure soon.
