Trion Worlds has shed some light on the first DLC pack for Defiance, tentatively titled Enter The Castithan, which will offer both free and paid content.

This is the first of five planned DLC releases for the game and will include a free component, a paid component, and a store update. So basically Trion wants to offer its free players something to keep them interested, but also wants to offer players a chance to secure some exclusive items if they are willing to part with some cash–the game’s got to make money after all.

A tentative list of content for the first batch of DLC can be found below:

You get this when you buy the DLC for $10:

  • Access to play the Castithan Species
  • Access to a new Story Mission Line with new Battle Arena Game Mode
  • Access to the new Castithan Battle Arenas
  • Castithan Charge Blade & Ceremonial Mask as a reward from Story Mission Line
  • A unique version of the Raptor, a new 4 player truck of doom
  • A unique Castithan version of an outfit
  • A Charge Weapons Starter Pack
  • Access to New Pursuits
  • New Xbox and PS3 Trophies and Achievements

You get this in the DLC for free:

  • Access to the new Charge Weapons Class and Castithan Blades
  • Access to Sieges, a new Open World Game Mode
  • Access to the new Monolith Major Arkfall
  • Access to a new PvP Map – Military Academy
  • Join a friend into the Battle Arenas Game Mode
  • Duel your friends and neighbors in the Duels Game Mode
  • Enemies, lockboxes, and events can drop Charge Weapons
  • Select a new voice for you character
  • Multitude of game improvements from UI to content
