The reapers have returned from dark space. With Earth under attack and the mass relays in a state of chaos from refugees and the councils fleet engaging reaper forces the galaxy is a mess. The outcome is unknown, the warfare is devastating. The galaxy will never be the same.
Announcement for our "open" beta, and what exactly that entails.

So its been a while since an update but its time I give you guys one. You guys are are probably looking forward to a release just as much as we are looking forward to passing this on to you. We have news on that front, and this is where things get good for you guys. We will be having an "Open" beta, what we are currently calling Defiance.
Now due to the massive amount of work that goes into the Reaper faction we have decided to pass along Cerberus and Council onto you guys upon completion. This release will be solely Cerberus and Citadel Council, and will be first release of the mod to the general public. This release will not be complete but it will be an open beta for the purpose of balancing. After out first release we will be begin dedicated work on the Reapers, balancing, code and such. Due to the probability that the Reapers will take much more time to complete we don't want to hold back you guys from having fun while we continue work.
After the completion of the Reaper faction we will release as the second part of the open beta called Invasion, for obvious reasons. Again with the massive amount of work we are going to have to put into balancing the Reapers we will be using this open time as a debug stage. We will address any errors or problems that arise as they come. So that when the whole release comes we will not be overcome with a massive amount of problems. Now as of right now we remain in closed alpha and we will engage in closed beta before entering our open beta phase. This may take a fair amount of time, so please be patient we are attempting to get as much work done as possible but you folks also need to realize that we are doing this for free, with our own time. Life > Hobbies, we all have responsibilities and sometimes we have to prioritize so please we ask that you stay patient.
Now due to the onset of life, i cannot promise any one release day for either right now but rest assured we have resumed work and updates will proceed shortly.
Your fearless leader
