One Million Registered Defiance Accounts

In a press release published yesterday, Trion Worlds announced that over 1,000,000 players have created Defiance accounts. The team also talked about a few other interesting details and statistics:

  • The not so cute or cuddly hellbugs have put up a good fight, but gamers are showing an incredible love for dropkicking, exploding and decimating them by annihilating more than 500,000,000 hellbugs to date.
  • Jumping on their ATV and cruising around the Badlands has led to gamers driving 50,000,000 miles around the terraformed Bay Area.
  • Banding together, Ark Hunters have engaged in triggering and battling back an incredible 1,000,000 Arkfalls.

Now, it’s important to remember that the number of accounts registered most likely doesn’t correspond directly to the number of players who actually bought Defiance, but statistics are statistics, and as a bonus– that’s a lot of hellbug deaths.

Check out the full press release on Trion’s official site.

    Im enjoying the game!

    i log in once a day and there always something todo- iam sure if everything had fallen into place i would be doin new missions as well.

    but so far Trion has created a FUN game, and at the end of the day that is all that matters!

      I agree completely!

    How do you register a Defiance account without buying the game? You need a code to even be able to get hooked up in the Account system in the first place. Maybe I’m missing something.

      You can make a Trion account for Defiance without buying the game, which is what players needed to do in order to take part in the beta weekends. Not all of those players bought the game, but their accounts are still there.

        Ah, I guess maybe I’m reading too much into the word “registered” there then. thanks!
