Trion Worlds is working with the Japanese game publisher to take its MMO game global.
Trion Worlds has partnered with Namco Bandai Games to distribute the massive open world shooter Defiance in Europe, the Middle-East, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The game will launch in April for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. There will also be a Syfy TV series set in the same universe. Check out the video from the set in Toronto below.
Defiance is an immersive online open-world shooter for console and PC set in a future shattered Earth. A revolutionary transmedia experience, the game will launch alongside the original Syfy TV show Defiance, with events from each impacting the other’s evolution. The game combines the intense action of a console third-person shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic.
“We’re delighted to be working with Namco Bandai, a great company with a proven track record in bringing big games successfully to the market thanks to their great distribution network and excellent relationship with both high-street and online retailers,” said John Burns, SVP and GM Trion Worlds Europe.
“We are really looking forward to collaborate with Trion Worlds, a very dynamic company which develops high-quality and successful massively social games, on such an ambitious and exciting project which is Defiance” added Olivier Comte, Senior Vice-President at Namco Bandai Games Europe.
