Trion Worlds has announced that the latest update for its free-to-play MMO Defiance will be available to download later this week.
The Alcatraz update is set to launch on April 14 and turns the Bay Area island of Alcatraz into “an Expedition rally point for ark hunters looking to explore enemy-infested territories.”
According to the developer, Expeditions are four-player co-op instanced battles that pit groups of players against waves of increasingly difficult foes. Three of these Expeditions will be available with the update: The War Below, Stolen Purpose, and the Hellbug Hunt.
In terms of rewards, players can earn new Cyber Rigs and Cyber Chips. Cyber Rigs augment the effectiveness of gear in battle, while Cyber Chips are used to enhance the bonuses that Cyber Rigs offer.
Defiance is available now on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
