Defiance is a first-of-its-kind television show AND video game. Trion and the Syfy channel are collaborating on this massive project that will launch Defiance simultaneously as a global television program on Syfy and the first-ever open-world shooter MMO from Trion. The game combines the intense moment-to-moment action of a shooter with the persistence and large-scale campaign play of an MMO. Defiance is being developed for the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 entertainment consoles, and features familiar shooter controls. In an entertainment first, the game and show will influence and depend on each other, and the show will even feature some players’ characters as extras.
