Hellbug event makes strange bedfellows of Trove and Defiance

    
4

One thing that’s quite apparent by now is that Trion Worlds adores its crossover promotions. It’s happening again, as Defiance’s hellbugs are breaching the gaming worlds to pour into Trove (after having done so several times before in RIFT). After all, these games couldn’t be more similar, could they?

In the new Hellbug Infestation event, players can earn in-game rewards for Trove and Defiance by partaking in various activities. Trove fans can secure two creepy hellbug mounts by fighting off invaders in the game and then logging into Defiance to do the same. Defiance players have a shot at getting a special Ground Pounder3 weapon by reaching battle rank 5 in Trove’s PvP mode. Basically, play both games to get goodies for both games.

Hellbug Infestation begins today and runs through February 23rd.

Siphaed I think if Trion did do it then there partner and up coming one may not be on bored unless there getting something out the deal. We as players see it good then we don’t have to keep paying high amount of money to get perks if people play more then one. On the business how much money the other company will get if a change like this happen.

I think that might be the point. They are already bursting with F2P games. When SOE had All Access, the majority of their games were P2P, not conversions yet, so it made since to pay one fee and get several to play.
If the vast majority of Trion’s games are F2P, why would they benefit from giving an ‘all access’ pass for $15/month since most of their income is coming from the Cash Shop Monster that is already Trion Worlds?
There isn’t any reason for most people to sub since they really only have Rift.

One thing that bugs me about Trion is that they’ve yet to see the potential of doing a subscription pass like that of SOE.  Their portfolio is bursting as the seam with F2P MMOs that they cross promote all the time for players to play them,…but subs, nope.  I’m certain that they’d see a huge spike in subscriptions if players saw it as more beneficial across all/most of their games instead of just a single game.
