Ah, Armistice Day, the special date in the lore of Defiance 2050 when humans and aliens stopped shooting at one another. To celebrate this, the game encourages you to head out and… shoot at aliens. Also humans. It’s a shooter; perhaps this is just the way things are supposed to be. But you can get new stuff for shooting all of these people, so while it might feel a little off-brand in lore terms, it’s at least rewarding.
Players who celebrate the event will be seeing a variety of returning events as well as gaining access to a new Cyber Rig and Caustic Fury Supply Crates, along with the returning Armistice Bargain Box for sale during the weekends. If you’re interested in any of these rewards, you’ve got a little time to pick things up, as Armistice Day will remain active until April 8th. Which is a bit more than a day, but at this point we may as well not quibble.
In the slightly gloomier category, it’s probably a good time to point out that the game has had little in the way of updates following the Gamigo acquisition, with the most notable updates being the promise of the Engineer and the departure of the game’s community manager (followed by two new community managers).
