In a packed two minutes and thirty seconds, the creators showcase the combination of alien and human culture that make up the visual identity of Defiance, introducing the virtual and practical sets that make up the futuristic frontier town of Defiance, several different types of aliens species, and the unique bright look of the environments being created for the show and, by extension, the game.
Set to a high-energy BetatraXx remix of fun.’s popular track “We Are Young,” the trailer showcases intense cooperative gameplay based around dynamic events called “arkfalls” that appear in both the online shooter and the live action series coming to Syfy. Both series and game were recently announced as launching together in April 2013. Series star Nolan (played by True Blood’s Grant Bowler) narrates the video.
This video, which features hundreds of players gunning down a Hellbug Horde in a terraformed land reminiscent of the San Francisco Bay Area, demonstrates the fast-paced, massively cooperative gameplay players will experience in Defiance.
The game combines the intense action of a console third-person shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic.
