Trion Worlds’ groundbreaking online game and Syfy TV series will converge in April.
Video game publisher and developer Namco Bandai Games America and Trion Worlds have partnered for the retail distribution of the highly-anticipated, massive, open-world shooter Defiance. The game will be released April 2 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Defiance is an immersive online open-world shooter set in a future shattered Earth. Defiance delivers a revolutionary trans-media experience, as the game will launch alongside the original Syfy Channel 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 (Massively Multiplayer Online) game, while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic.
“With its direct connection with the Syfy television show, Defiance is breaking new ground in dynamic storytelling within videogames,” said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing at Namco Bandai Games America. “Never in the history of videogames has player interactions and videogame scenarios had a direct effect on a television show’s storyline and vice versa. We’re excited to see Defiance provide pulse pounding entertainment on two fronts!”
In Defiance, players embark on a journey into a futuristic online open world shooter where the survival of Earth relies on their skills as an Ark Hunter, as they level up in massive co-op battles and fierce multiplayer combat. Players can also hunt alone while improving skills and unlocking powerful modern and alien weaponry that is essential for survival in the constantly evolving online world. Defiance invites gamers to explore vast landscapes on a variety of vehicles while leading the charge in huge co-op battles. Immerse yourself in the world of Defiance as the game impacts, and is impacted by, the Defiance TV series.
