While Defiance may look like a brown/grey shooter inspired by all brown/grey shooters, the latest trailer shows off a selection of weapons that are far from generic. There are lightning guns, tick-firing guns, big weird metal globule guns.
Check them out for yourself.
This is one of the first videos to really show off Defiance being played as a game, and not just highlighting its strange cross-media relationship (Defiance is launching with a television series on SyFy). Till now we hadn’t seen the game’s weapons modification system, which, using modules, lets you change the power and use of your guns. If it’s as versatile as the trailer suggests that it could lend this MMO shooter some real sticking power.
Defiance is due for general release on 2 April.
