Defiance DLC Arktech Revolution Coming In April
Defiance players will see a new DLC pack this April according to Trion Worlds. The fifth installment, Arktech Revolution, will introduce new features and updates to core gameplay.
EGO Rating Cap Increased and New Perks Added
Arktech Revolution will introduce an increase to the EGO rating cap to go along with the new powerful perks on the EGO grid and higher EGO unit cap to claim them. The higher EGO rating will have a larger effect on damage, health, and shield capacity. The damage output of weapons will be sealed on their power rating. An addition of a new Salvage Matix that will increase a weapon's power rating as well.
Enemies will now be more difficult to match the players. The difference between standard and the elite enemies will be "more pronounce," says Trion Worlds.
A new look for Dark Matter
Expert CO-OP Maps and Dynamic Event Scaling
Teaming up with your friendly ark hunters to take on new expert versions of all co-op maps featuring new enemy difficulty tiers will be more exciting and a challenge. New special tokens to purchase legendary weapons and mods from certain vendors.
For you Wasteland Warriors, your equipment loadout is getting a change.
- Incendiary: deals increased damage to health and less to shields
- Syphon: steals some health from shield damage and lots from health damage
- Radiation: deals a percentage of damage directly, bypassing armor plates
- Bio: deals increased damage to armor plates
Armor is a new damage-mitigating buff granted passively by shield equipment and temporarily by perks, stims or spikes. Unlike shields, armor doesn't regenerate when excessive damage breaks it but can be repaired at extraction points. Temporary armor doesn't stack and expires with the effect that granted it; passive armor does stack.
Enemies will drop universal consumables, called charges, of each type of grenade, spike and stim charges that will refill one specified item type in your loadout. You'll also automatically salvage any excess charges upon picking it up.
The Arktech Revolution in Defiance will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this April. No specific date is available at this time. Defiance is a futuristic online third-person open-world shooter, MMORPG, by Trion Worlds.
