London- 21.02.20213- Trion Worlds' groundbreaking sci-fi video game Defiance™ has been unveiled as the lead sponsor for this year's SCI-FI-LONDON Film Festival, the UK's leading Science Fiction experience.

In Defiance, players are introduced to a future where humans and several alien species live together on an Earth ravaged by decades of war. Set in an alien terraformed San Francisco Bay Area, the game blends intense third-person shooter action with persistence, scale, and deep customization. An immersive story will evolve alongside the events of the TV series.

Created by Trion Worlds, the developers behind critically acclaimed fantasy MMO RIFT® and eagerly awaited massively-multiplayer RTS End of Nations™, Defiance is set to launch on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on the 2nd April 2013.
