Trion Worlds has announced that the anticipated massively multiplayer online (MMO) third-person action videogame, Defiance, will launch globally in April 2013. A one-of-a-kind transmedia experience, players and fans can experience Defiance on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or a Windows PC and become part of the online world ahead of the 15th April debut of the Syfy television show of the same name.
“In terms of ambition and scope, Defiance‘s transmedia features make it unlike any other entertainment experience,” said Nathan Richardsson, Trion’s VP of Development and Defiance Executive Producer. “After five years of development, it brings great pride to the Trion and Syfy teams seeing Defiance come to fruition.”
For those who cannot wait until April to get a look into life as an Ark Hunter in Defiance, Trion released the full version of their highly-anticipated Defiance live action game trailer titled Join the Fight. Set in the arid desert, this trailer combines the isolated, post-apocalyptic setting of Defiance with futuristic EGO technology and a Hellbug attack. This live action trailer gives further insight into the lives behind the Ark Hunters in Defiance, and how there is never a safe moment on this new, terraformed Earth.
Gamers can now pre-order Defiance online and at major videogame retailers, and choose from multiple game bundles, digital and physical, starting at £34.99 GBP: Standard, Collectors, and a very limited number of Ultimate editions are on sale now. Defiance will launch on 2nd April 2013, simultaneously on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. The full-length trailer is available below and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Defiance.
