Defiance Is a Show and a Game, But Not a Game Show [VIDEO]
You have to give Syfy and Trion Worlds credit for ambition. Defiance is a brand-new science fiction franchise that will launch an MMOFPS and a dramatic TV show at the same time.

Events on the TV show will affect the gameworld, and — more intriguingly — vice versa.
To better understand the interaction between the two different media, take a look at the video below, which offers some interesting details along with a lot of marketing bullsh*t. Though neither the show nor the game looks like a guaranteed hit, the combination of the two could be intriguing.
