[Update] Defiance Update Causes Game-Disabling Error, Now Back Online

Posted on April 16, 2013 AT 10:42am

Defiance’s first major patch, designed to fix a lot of the server, connection, and bug-related issues plaguing Trion’s MMO, has finally launched. Unfortunately, it disables the game completely on Xbox 360.

According to users on the official Defiance forums—and now confirmed by the developers themselves—the Xbox 360 version’s update has caused a game-breaking error. Users are reporting that post-patch, trying to boot up Defiance only delivers the following Xbox 360 game error message:

“Game Error: The game couldn’t start. Try downloading the game again.”

Trion Worlds acknowledges the problem, and are currently in the process of solving the issue. We’ll report on this more as the story develops. For now, hold off on trying to play Defiance until Trion repairs it.

Both the PC version of Defiance and the Xbox 360 version are down for maintenance. The PS3′s patch has not gone live, and remains unaffected.

Update: Trion’s community manager reports that the Xbox 360 and PC versions of Defiance are now back up.

“We’re back online with Xbox and PC – please log in, patch and play!” he posted on the Defiance Forums.
