Defiance is free for 72 hours.
If you've been wondering what all the Defiance fuss is about, the MMO shooter from Trion Worlds now offers a free trial on PC. Thanks to the trial, any interested players can explore the terraformed Bay Area for free for a limited time.
Trying out Defiance is easier than ever. All you've got to do is create a new account and download the game. With the free trial, players get full access to the game but can only play for 72 hours. Trion has also placed a 200 EGO rating cap on characters. EGO rating basically allows characters to unlock content, loot, and inventory slots.
The best part of the free trial is that if you choose to keep your character, all progress, rewards, and purchases will transfer to the full game once you buy it. The 72 hour trial period starts as soon as you sign up though, so don't dilly dally if you want to get the most out of your experience.
For those looking to purchase the full game, Defiance has recently been featured in the Steam Summer Sale at greatly reduced prices (as of this writing it's 66 percent off). Check it out there in order to get a great deal if you want to continue playing.
If you're not familiar with Defiance but want to try the game out with this trial, don't forget that this MMO has an accompanying TV show attached to it where a lot of the story comes from. If you're at all confused as to what's going on in the game, don't hesitate to watch the Defiance TV show.
