Defiance Launch Trailer Blows Up
Written By
View author's profile

This week sees the arrival of the ambitious MMO shooter, Defiance.

Launching in conjunction with a Syfy TV series which will tie-in and overlap with the game itself, Defiance sure isn’t messing around. VP of development for Trion and executive producer Nathan Richardsson is suitably pumped.

“We’re incredibly proud that after five years of development, we are bringing this ambitious project to life,” he said. “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.”

We’ll see if Richardsson’s promises stack up, but in the meantime check out Defiance’s launch trailer below.

@#5: Just because you can list show names, doesn't make them good. The man doesn't like TV and that's that.

@#2: Supposedly the game and the show are supposed to influence each other and constantly evolve. So maybe if you kill the Supreme Maggotlord of the Abyss, you might want to watch the show so they can congratulate you and your 20 hour day raid schedule.

Assuming the game is anything like that.

@4 The servers have only been online today, even if reviewers had an early copy they'd still have to wait until today to play it, so I except to see some reviews by the end of the week, it's a pretty fun game tho, kinda like a sci-fi Borderlands.

@4 It's an MMO so wouldn't reviewers have to wait for the servers to come online before they review it?

I'm more pissed off with the fact that it takes 10gb of space to play. I want to give it a go but it's kinda hard when you only have 4 gigs of space left on your old premium console

@5 1% of anything is bound to be decent. Doesn't make the other 99% bearable.

Sons Of Anarchy is terrible. "Shakespreare on wheels" says the much regurgitated press-release. Laughable.

My copy didn't come today, fucking Amazon.

Only the amish and third world countries don't watch TV and I'd bet a 1000 quid a few of them do.

@13 glad you listen to what others say over the power of your own decision making. Couldn't be further more from the truth, the show is very well done and very damn good. The moment I see some Shakespearean stuff going on though I will let you know. After 5 seasons though, I might be hard pressed.

@14 I don't watch TV and im not amish, nor do I live in a third world country. That way of thinking is exactly why karma had something different to say about your order from amazon :D

I have been playing the game since 11pm yesterday, GMT.

No issues, the work from Beta to final product has been nothing but astounding, good job Trion.

Plus the x360a community who I have been playing with have been really good too, we have quite a clan now too!

@5 If you are paying $16 a month for HBO to watch night time soap operas then yeah you might be crazy. If I am going to sit in front of the tv for a couple hours I want to play a interactive game that tests my skill, instead of watching overpaid actors pretending to be someone they are not. If you like those shows go ahead and watch them Im not stopping you.

@6 Thanks for the info, that is what I was wondering. The game looks interesting but I dont want to have to tune into a show to know whats going on.

@7: Borderlands is in a manner Sci-fi, science fiction doesn't strictly mean space or aliens or supersoldiers in space marine gear

TV has shows that may or may not be good, got it.

Now can anyone here provide some actual information about this game? With the HUGE spring release schedule I don't have time or money to buy this and hope for the best but if it really is like Borderlands than I'd love to pick it up!

I played this for a couple hours before the server had to go down for 30 mins for maintenance... There were players EVERYWHERE I loved it. I'm looking forward to getting past the point I got to in the Beta because I played the Beta A LOT.

Solid third person shooter play mechanics. Tight controls and fun shooting.

Decent MMO elements. The arkfalls can get crazy with around 100 people working on them. Playing in small groups (max size during regular play is 4) is incredibly rewarding and fun.

Quests and missions get a little repetitive but that is to be expected of any MMO. Most consist of: "Go here" --> "Kill this" --> "click on this"

I spent a couple days playing the beta and about 4-5 hours playing today with a couple people. The final product is much better then the beta and today was one of the more enjoyable days I've had gaming in awhile.
