The second Defiance 2050 closed beta weekend begins this Friday, adding Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to the mix!

The Defiance 2050 PC closed beta weekend was a huge success, with thousands of players jumping to see what the upcoming re-imagining of the landmark sci-fi shooter will hold for players when it releases this summer. Trion Worlds is thrilled to reveal that a second closed beta test will be underway this weekend, welcoming Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players into the fold!

From April 27 through 29, hop into the Defiance 2050 closed beta to experience the riveting shooter gameplay and great environments that will await you when the game launches. Play up to level 25 and explore Mount Tam and Madera while checking out exciting story-based missions and large-scale battles, with console players able to jump into the action for the first time. Also, PC gamers, if you missed out on the beta last weekend, this is your second chance!

Recreating the original game from the ground up, Defiance 2050 is the definitive Defiance experience in every way. Taking advantage of what modern consoles and PC are capable of, the dev team is able to implement a host of new features and upgrades that fans of the original have been asking for. Advancements in hardware allow for action on an even larger scale than before, with more players able to take to the battlefield in white-knuckled combat.

Defiance 2050 also makes major updates to the original game’s systems, streamlining modernizing them for today’s shooter audience. Environments are bigger and better than ever, enemies are even more ruthless, and weaponry can be further customized to cater a player’s particular playstyle.

Defiance 2050 launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC summer 2018. For more information on the game, please visit , and for more information on Trion Worlds, please visit .
