Summary: The download that is required, "the patch", would not download. I waited an hour and forty five minutes and it just stated that it's still downloading. I tried again, same problem. I didn't have this issue with Titanfall. When I checked it stated the "the Patch" was corrupted.
Don't buy Defiance "With latest update, it is NOT FUN!"

Summary: With the latest update,I would no longer recommend buying or playing any version of this game. They introduced a new "Scaling" system and the lower ranked player can not compete with higher ranked players. The cap is set at over 5000 and I am 4037.
Summary: This "game" will have a distinguished place in history for me as being 1 of the only 2 games I have ever put into a console and simply could not play it, the other being Game Party: In Motion (a Kinect game in which we couldn't get past the main menu).
Summary: Defiance is first person shooter (FPS) with a Massively Multi-player Online (MMO) component. It has four basic parts; a single player FPS story mode, an open world MMO mode, a co-op map mode, and a player vs player (PvP). I do not recommend this game.
