Trion Worlds has today announced the date for the final beta of Defiance, the open-world shooter, which begins on March 22 and ends on March 24. Xbox 360 and PS3 owners will also get a chance to check it out and additional details on the beta phase will be revealed next week, when invites go out.
Those who play in the ‘Advanced Mission Beta 3’, will get to play as Ark Hunters, who are genetically enhanced and can use both human and alien weapons, along with their upgrades.
Players will get to explore the Mt. Tam and Madera regions of the game with co-op battles on Angel Island and Cronkhite Bunker. Thanks to a partnership with Dodge, players pre-ordering Defiance will also get an exclusive in-game red Dodge Challenger at launch, in addition to the previously announced pre-order reward items. The Dodge Challenger is the fastest vehicle in the game and players in the beta will get to test drive it first by competing in the Dodge time trial challenge located in Madera.
Defiance is scheduled for release April 2, 2013, and is now available for pre-order.
