You learn a lot when you work on a game for a while. Defiance has had some time to settle into its routine, and that means that the developers have had time to re-evaluate things like what weapons players have access to. The latest question-and-answer session from the development team explains that the team originally didn’t believe players would respond positively to novelty weapons, but sentiment has shifted with the inclusion of holiday events, and more of them are actually a good thing. So expect more of those in the future.
The answers also cover matters such as ties into the ongoing story of the show, with Season 3 being rather disconnected due to various in-story factors. Fans should take a look at the full rundown for more DLC plans and an explanation behind the slightly more random drop rates for the game’s recent summer holiday event.
