Yesterday was a bit of a wild ride for Defiance players who were hoping to pop in-game and enjoy a few rounds as a Castithan among all of the new content released in the big Castithan Charge Pack DLC. And by ‘wild ride’ I mean, well, not that smooth. PS3 users experienced the worst of the issues with the servers being offline until late evening and followed by the announcement that paid DLC content wouldn’t even be available for download until this morning. On top of that, the PS3 servers were still undergoing major timeout issues and still are as of publishing this update. Ouch.
With any luck, all issues will be fixed today. Until then, here was last night’s announcement regarding the PS3 update:

8/20/13 – 6:00 PM PST At this time, the NA PS3 servers are up and open for players, with the situation described below.
At this time, we are unlocking the servers for NA PS3. However, we are still experiencing a backend complication with the DLC and the PlayStation Store and are waiting to hear back from the PlayStation team to confirm and fix the problem. Our ETA on getting that response is tomorrow, so for tonight all paid Castithan Charge Pack content will be temporarily unavailable. In addition, users will not be able to purchase the DLC from the Playstation Store, as we have temporarily disabled the ability to do so – the last thing we want is for people to spend $9.99 and receive nothing.
All free content will be available to play as soon as we come back up, such as the Dark Matter arkfalls and Volge sieges.
Thanks – and if we hear anything sooner tonight we will of course let you know.
