Defiance MMO – Game (and Syfy 2013 TV Show) Set in Post-Alien Invasion Earth

Defiance is an upcoming science fiction TV show in the Syfy channel’s 2013 lineup. It’s also a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Syfy and Trion Worlds have teamed up to produce this MMORPG which will reportedly work in such a way that the events of the TV show will affect the MMO and vice versa.

There has not been much publicity about its release but this is expected to change once the first episode of the show is aired. Defiance follows in the footsteps of other hit sf TV series that have their own free-to-play online games such as Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek, both of which have MMOs for fans to enjoy.

News reports indicate that the title will be multiplatform. Players can expect to be able to play it on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

This gameplay video seems to show that it will be a very futuristic type of game with high-tech weapons.

“Defiance combines the intense action of a AAA console shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart weaves the rich tapestry of the world into a series with the scope, characters, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic. 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.” quote from the official website: http://www.defiance.com/en/
