A closed beta for Defiance 2050 will be held in April.

Trion Worlds said today a tester for Defiance 2050 would be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

For this particular beta event, PS4 will only be available in North America.

Announced in February 2018, Defiance 2050 is an overhaul of the original Defiance with upgraded graphics, textures and resolutions.

It also updates several of the game’s systems and it will have a much larger scale. The TV series which accompanied the original game will not make a return.

The free-to-play, futuristic, online action shooter will also feature the same world, characters and events. It also features a new class and progression system with an overhaul to the weapons and mods.

In Defiance 2050, players will team up in co-op events to explore a partially terraformed world through story missions and PvP combat.

During the closed beta, which takes place April 20-22, players will be testing the Assault class. You can sign up here.

Defiance 2050 is slated for release this summer.
