The launch trailer for Trion Worlds’ new shooter-MMO, Defiance, has arrived. A plethora of aliens, cutscenes, and intense gameplay situations can be seen in the latest footage. The game itself takes place about 30 years in the future, with an alien presence on Earth; the player is able to choose a human and their origin, and fight against the aliens. Being able to choose their character’s origin replaces the classic MMO approach of being able to choose a class. There is no such thing in Defiance.
The Defiance television show will be premiering April 15th, 2013 on the SyFy network. The TV show and video game have been designed and planned in a way in which events in the show will directly effect aspects of the MMO.
Defiance has been developed and published by Trion Worlds for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. You can check out the new trailer below.
