Witness the revolutionary transmedia world of Defiance in a new action-packed trailer
We have a new video for Defiance, an upcoming open world shooter MMO from Trion Worlds that interconnects with the Syfy's TV Defiance series which is produced by Universal Cable Productions and penned by Rockne S. O'Bannon, a legendary sci-fi TV writer best-known for his work on Warehouse 13, Alien Nation, seaQuest DSV, and Farscape.
Set on a future Earth, Defiance introduces players and viewers to a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet transformed by decades of conflict. Because they exist in a single universe, the show and the game will influence each other and evolve together over time, with actions in both mediums driving the overall story of Defiance.
The trailer showcases intense cooperative gameplay based around dynamic events called "arkfalls" that appear in both the online shooter and the live action series coming to Syfy. Both series and game were recently announced as launching together in April 2013. Series star Nolan (played by True Blood’s Grant Bowler) narrates the video.
The first ever public demo of Defiance will occur at the Trion Booth (South Hall #823) throughout E3, June 5-7.
