With "Defiance" coming to PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 it's no surprise that the game would utilize something popularized by console games. Developer Trion Worlds announced today that a Season Pass is now available for the MMO shooter.
A Season Pass, for those unaware, is a bundle of downloadable content (DLC) purchased before they release. In the case of "Defiance" players can pay $39.99 for five DLCs now instead of paying $9.99 for each one as they release. The content is still released on a schedule for a Season Pass holder; however, that person saves $9.99 by buying them all at once.
The Season Pass for "Defiance" will include a new playable alien species, new weapons, new vehicles, new missions, new rewards, and more. Players that pick up the Season Pass now will also get a special Hellbug hat for their characters and a bonus lock box. The five DLCs will be released over 2013 and 2014.
PC players can order the Season Pass now from the website DLC page. Xbox 360 and PS3 Season Passes will be available, but they are listed as "coming soon."
