The new official teaser trailer for Defiance, the upcoming revolutionary transmedia television show and videogame, aired for the first time this week. Both a television series on Syfy, and a massive online shooter for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, Defiance features player versus player (PvP) gameplay that will affect the storyline of the television show.
In Defiance, players and viewers are introduced to a world where humans and aliens try to make a new life together on a planet ravaged by decades of conflict. The videogame combines the intense action of a third-person shooter with the persistence, scale, and customisation of a massively multiplayer online (MMO) videogame, while its television counterpart exudes the scope, story, and character-driven drama of a classic science fiction epic. Because they exist in a single universe, the show and the videogame will influence each other and evolve together over time, with actions in both mediums driving the overall story of Defiance. The latest teaser trailer showcases the ways in which the two will work symbiotically, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Defiance.
