Defiance: Beta Key Giveaway

Grab your Sci-Fi MMO beta keys courtesy of Trion Worlds and ZAM

Defiance is an MMO that is eagerly anticipated for a number of reasons, including its close ties to the SyFy television program that takes place in the same world.

As the game ramps up towards its April launch, next weekend, January 18 to 20, will be the first opportunity for many players to jump into the closed beta and test the action packed shooter -- it's still under NDA so power down your XSplit you overeager types.

To help get as many Ark Hunters in-game as possible, Trion Worlds has teamed up with ZAM in a Defiance beta key giveaway.

To join in the mayhem, all you have to do is sign up to ZAM and head over to our special giveaway page and grab the precious key.

Click on Redeem Key to be taken to the appropriate screen or follow the instructions below:

1.     Create your account or log in with an existing Trion account at
https://defiance.trionworlds.com
2.     Click the APPLY CODE tab.
3.     Enter your Unique PC Beta Key in the Apply New Code field and click
APPLY.
4.     Keep an eye out on your inbox for your invite email with
instructions on how to download the beta client.

Hurry though, they wont last forever...

Third person only. I for one will not even bother downloading this. I hate games like this that do not even give you the option as to what viewpoint you would like to play in.

Just a little FYI about games in Beta test status:

Contrary to what people might think, it is INDUSTRY STANDARD that acceptance to Beta-testing is NOT guaranteed-and it certainly isn't an instantaneous thing either. Even if 4711 people sign up all at once, it could be that only 1 person or even 4700 get accepted...not everyone gets accepted. Also, with any new MMO, it's going to take them a while to get accounts set up, figure out how to regulate access, GUESS how many servers they're going to need, and see what kind of bandwidth they're going to need. Most of them also look to see what time zones people are applying from, and try (at first) to limit the number of people coming on from every time zone so that there isn't a problem of people from the Eastern US can get on but nobody from the West Coast or Europe (for example) can.

So please don't be knocking ZAM folks around because of this. They simply passed along the info they were given. Just be...oh...idk....PATIENT? :) It seems to me that Trion is honoring this, but like I said, it isn't any instant thing that's going to happen a bare minute after you sign up over there and click "Send". You've got to give them a wee bit of time. And please be nice to them so they won't decide that ZAM folks are rude SOB's and don't deserve to get in on something like this ever again.

Be patient, young Skywalker(s). :)

This DOES NOT GUARANTEE ACCESS to the 18th-20th! How do I know? I asked trion and this is what I received.

Hello Alex,

Thank you for contacting us regarding Defiance.

I certainly understand your interest in gaining access to the Defiance Beta. At this time, it does appear the Voucher you mentioned has been applied to your account properly. Unfortunately this Voucher does not actually provide access to the Defiance Beta. However, it does provide an opportunity to receive an invite to the Defiance Beta in the future. Please keep an eye on your email account for any new emails you might be receiving from us regarding the Defiance Beta, and acceptance into the event. All necessary information for downloading the game client and installation would be provided in this email. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to let us know.

Thank you for your continued support of Trion Worlds!


So either ZAM is wrong or TRION is... a little peeved though. Lots of false info.

As in a response below, the response you got from Trion was technically correct as at the time you asked, you were not flagged for the beta. However, it does not mean you will be denied access for this weekend.
You will be flagged for the beta when you receive the access email from Trion and once you go to the link and agree to the EULA and so on.

Hopefully you will have received the required email already or, if not, will do so shortly.

Thanks,

Scott

It's been confirmed that the reason you received that email is because you have not yet received your beta access email yet from Trion (or hopefully have, just not when you made the original query).

The response you got from your query to Trion was due to your account not being yet flagged as you have to get the email then agree to the EULA which will then link you to the client download.

Trion is sending out the very large number of emails in waves through tonight.

I hope this has settled any confusion and i understand your anxiety to get in the game.

Regards,

Scott

Hey Jimpa,
As far as I understand, the emails for the beta were sent out only a short time ago. Have you received a beta email?

Sorry for any confusion, we have been reliably informed that the beta keys we distributed are for the closed beta event January 18-20 and for events that will occur later.

I have requested help in regards to your query and to confirm the details.

The key is usable for future beta events, not just next weekends.

And you're welcome!

Is this for the closed beta for the 18th-20th? or for the stress test?
