TROUBLE IN PARADISE
The Grid have arrived in Paradise! Learn about these fearsome new foes with an all new mission chain that will take you on a journey to discover how these new foes came to be, and begin Ark Hunters down a path to defeat them.
These new missions also come with new data recorders, pursuits, and rewards for completion! CRUSADER IS HERE
The Crusaders have come to paradise to help slay the Grid threat. Unlock the all new Crusader class, and smash your enemies with Hammer time, or call down a Meteor from the Ark Belt to obliterate everything in your path.
- The new Crusader class can be purchased from the Defiance store (along with an exclusive, limited time outfit), or from the Hunter Commendations vendor with in-game currency
- Level this new bruising class, meant for up close and personal combat
- Complete the Grid mission storyline to earn additional currency to purchase the class!
- All players who purchased the Ultimate Pack will have the Crusader Class immediately
As the Grid threat ramps up, so too do the Arkfalls in Paradise. Both Major and Minor Arkfalls have gone through some significant changes, now working off of a wave system where enemies will spawn based on how quickly you can take down a previous wave.
- More and more enemies will spawn the faster you can take them down
- Complete each wave in time to progress to the next. The more players around, the more enemies you can take down!
- See how many waves you can take down before the end of the Arkfall!
Scaling has been slightly altered to allow for higher power rating players to deal more damage the larger the gap between them and their enemy is. Higher power rating players will notice a substantial difference in damage when fighting enemies that are much lower power rating than them. WEAPON SKINS
