Defiance is the first multi-platform, open-world shooter MMO that will attempt a ground-breaking entertainment experience by interconnecting with a global television program by cable's Syfy channel.
Set on a future Earth, Defiance introduces players and viewers to a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet transformed by decades of conflict. The game combines the intense action of a AAA console shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart weaves the rich tapestry of the world into a series with the scope, characters, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic. Because they exist in a single universe, the show and the game will influence each other and evolve together over time, with actions in both mediums driving the overall story of Defiance.
Defiance heads toward its April launch with its first closed beta weekend, which runs January 18th through the 20th. Want to be one of the first to unlock the secrets of Defiance? Ten Ton Hammer and Trion Worlds hold the key! Snag a beta key, follow the instructions, and wait for your email invite to the weekend frag fest.
UPDATE (1/18/2013): We asked Trion for an update since some of our readers have not received beta invitations. We were informed that while having a key flags your account for beta, it does not grant instant access to the beta weekend event. If you don't receive an invite for the upcoming weekend, please wait for an invite to a future event.
