New Defiance Content Released, it’s called “Aftermath”

by on November 26, 2014

Mick was a bit of a fan of Defiance when it released last April, as he said:

Defiance is a fun shooter with more than a hint of the Red Faction franchise about it, decked out with a huge amount of loot and customisation set in a massive world with an engaging backstory.

Fast forward to today, however, and there’s a “massive” new piece of content being released, which is called Aftermath. Here’s the full details, according to the official blog:

Starting Tuesday, November 25, new missions that follow the events of Season 2 and span both Paradise and Silicon Valley will be available. The Pilgrims of the Guiding Light reveal their final move, and the world is put in jeopardy once again. The assassin, Nujekpe, closes in on his prey, Eren Niden, and the criminal Melak Vor reveals a new plan to launch a war between what remains of the Earth Republic and Votanis Collective.

The full patch notes will be live soon but here’s a preview:

New Missions: Seven new missions, including three instanced missions, which challenge ark hunters to overcome the villainous Melak Vor, the assassin Nujekpe, and the nefarious machinations of LOCI. Do you have what it takes to stop the Arkrise?

New Story Maps: Put a stop to Echelon’s machinations in a bunker deep beneath the Presidio, face Nujekpe and his mercenaries at Eren’s last stand, and delve deep into a huge arkfall buried below Silicon Valley.

Thanksgiving Event: Do you have what is takes to face the Bioman barrage of the New Frontier Harvest? Do you want a full set of the Plate Slicer Synergy? Do you like weaponized turkey?

Salvage Matrix Action – Reduce Rating: Reduce Rating brings the rating of an item down to match your current EGO rating.

Perk and Effect Feedback: Triggered effects now display names or effects when triggered. You may toggle this feature on the settings menu with “Show Effect Names”.

Emotes and Callouts: Emotes and Callouts are now available in the Quick Menu!
