If you saw my other thread about the demise of the layoffs over at "Trion Worlds
". Than understandably you may be scoffing at me posting this thread about this Memorial Weekend Promotion
here in the States. Nonetheless I don't see "SyFy" nor probably "Comcast" (a national cable & internet provider) that now owns them via their recent purchase of "NBC Universal" giving up on the game.
Mmorpg.com is reporting about the upcoming promotion Here

Both the Standard Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition will be 30% off. In addition, Steam will also be running a sale on “Bits,” the in-game currency for Defiance, during which customers will get more “Bits” for their money.
So anyone that's curious about the game before making any purchasing decisions try it out as a trial on Valve's Steam
for the weekend.
