If you’re playing Defiance right now, you probably want to know that you still get something out of it. Sure, you might be having fun, but will any of your progress matter? The short answer is yes, thanks to the Valor system. For each pursuit (which is Defiance-speak for “achievements”) you earn, you’ll earn another chunk of Valor for when Defiance 2050 goes live, allowing you to purchase cosmetic gear.
What if you already have all of the pursuits available in the game? Well, then you’ll earn lots of Valor. Also, a new batch of pursuits is getting rolled out on March 9th (e.g., today) to give you something new to do, which means you’ll get even more Valor to transfer over. Account-wide unlocks like special titles and character slots will also carry over automatically, with developers asking for feedback about special rewards to bring into the revamped game; check out the full rundown for more details.
