Trion Worlds announced today the launch of Defiance, the futuristic online open world shooter for the X360, PS3 and PC. The Defiance Universe expands even further on April 15th, with the premiere of Syfy Network’s Defiance series. In addition, Trion Worlds has released a launch trailer for Defiance that can be viewed below.
Nathan Richardsson, VP of Development for Trion and Executive Producer of Defiance said:
“We’re incredibly proud that after five years of development, we are bringing this ambitious project to life. The game launch is just the beginning of a truly unique entertainment experience and, in a couple weeks’ time, you’ll be able to tune into Syfy to see the story unfold, the characters develop, and realize transmedia entertainment unlike ever before.”
In Defiance, thousands of players, who take on the role of an Ark Hunter, scour a transformed Earth in search of valuable alien technology. Each Ark Hunter can play to its strength, customizing special abilities as well as upgrading a huge variety of both modern and alien weaponry at its disposal.
Players can hunt alone or with others as they engage in massive co-op boss battles and fierce multiplayer combat known as Shadow War, in addition to taking on dynamic missions in campaign mode while exploring this constantly evolving world.
