Preorder Information and Answers

Posted on:

We’ve had a lot of questions about our different editions and we want to lay out the information for you again. Listed below are all of our preorder options and accompanying images for each bundle.


We have also started a Preorder FAQ in our forums where we will take direct questions and tracking down direct answers. You can directly get to the FAQ by clicking this link and we encourage you to head to the forums and ask us questions.

You can choose from multiple game bundles, digital and physical, starting at USD $59.99: Standard, Collectors, and a very limited number of Ultimate editions. Each package allows players to delve deeper, and more quickly, into the persistent futuristic universe where the survival of Earth relies on your skills as an Ark Hunter leveling up in massive co-op battles and fierce multiplayer combat.

Defiance is scheduled for release in April 2013, and can be pre-ordered online and at major games retailers in North America. Information about the European preorder will be available shortly. We have not released any information regarding our European Ultimate Edition, so please stay tuned for that!

These are our digital preorder versions: You can preorder these at or at the local online retailer of your choice. If you are having trouble finding an edition at your online retailer, contact us at  or message us at @defiancegame on Twitter for more help!

In addition to digital editions, we also have physical copies of the game you can preorder. You can pick these up both in stores and online. The major difference between these editions and the digital editions is that you  will get a physical box with the game and goodies inside: you can pick these up at as well as at the retailer of your choice (both in-store and on their online site!) Again, if you don’t see an edition at a store of your choosing, please contact the Community Team and we’ll help you out.
