A post has gone up on the Defiance community site, outlining some of the updates that will be coming down the chute that will address the launch issues the game is currently suffering, such as lag and connectivity troubles.

Nathan Richardsson, Defiance's executive producer, has posted an update apologizing about some of the issues that gamers are still facing and telling them what the plans are for the future. Some of these troubles include an unstable US Xbox server, server crashes, connectivity and patching, and fixes needed for chat and VOIP (voice over internet protocol) services.

Some plans for the future of the game include five downloadable content packs due out within the year, with a mix of free and paid content. Free content will pack features and content, while paid content will include some new playable species. More updates, like one slated for April 15th, 2013 and another one two weeks later, will be coming to help fix everything that's currently plaguing the game, once they pass the certification process. After the updates and patches fix the current problems, DLC will be the next thing on the list.
