Where TV and Video Games become one.
Trion Worlds and the SyFy channel have a very ambitious project in the works called Defiance. It’s an MMO game coming to consoles and PC, and a TV show that are going to follow each other, shape each other and hopefully make each other better.
The story behind Defiance is set 30 years in the future, where the world is trying to survive after a massive War took place between Humans and Aliens. Now the survivors on Earth must work together to survive the attacks and try to rebuild their world. Both the game and the show will exist in the same universe, with the outcome of each changing the other as they grow and evolve. The best part about it is that it’s an MMO that will feature missions and events that could literally involve thousands of players working together for a common goal. That sounds awesome, if it works.
It’s a very interesting, yet ambitious project and I’m excited to see how it turns out. For now, we are left with the below trailer to give us our first taste of what to expect when Defiance is released.
