This sounds good! Defiance really need some new content, and those expeditions would be nice for players who getting tired of the same arkfalls and incursions. I hope the Cyber Rigs will have some EGO requirement, so there will be reason for players to level up, because right now you can get and do everything right from the beginning, there is almost no motivation to reach the EGO cap.
