Defiance, Trion Worlds has announced that it will soon release the first major update to the game.
Patch 1.010 is a laundry list of fixes for everything from NPC AI problems to mission text typos to animation flubs to increased rewards, but the most important one is right at the top: "Improved server and client stability."
