Defiance is a MMO shooter that has connected PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game allows players to experience online shooting while watching show.
The joint effort from the TV developer Syfy and online game developer Trion brought about the parallel operation of the sci-fi open-world shooter MMO Defiance and its scripted live action TV series, which is destined to be a refreshing and revolutionary experience for players, as Dave Howe, president of Syfy revealed, “No one’s attempted this before. …create the first truly immersive, 24/7 interactive story that bridges online gaming and the TV world in a unique way.”
Defiance pries into the distorted future of our planet, where humans and aliens coexist on the relics resulted from decades of conflicts. The frenetic hardcore action of a console shooter, as well as the customizable and persistent gameplay of a MMO are naturally integrated in the game, while the TV series demonstrate the scope and outline of a sci-fi legend.
The game story unfolds in the San Francisco Bay Area and its counterpart TV series outside of St. Louis, Missouri; however, events and updates will be synchronous in the two, and they will constantly and closely influence and evolve each other to promote the overall progression of Defiance. For example, one character from the series may be sent over to San Francisco to participate in the game world, where players are able to have interactions with him/her before this character returns to the St. Louis base. Consequently, while you complete the routine work of character creation and customization as well as quest accomplishments in the ammo-infested world, chances are that your actions in your independent universe can influence the actions in the TV series.
Back to the tradition of MMOs, Defiance features a progression system that rewards you with experience points upon the completion of objectives and missions, and fast-paced combats that are reasonably expected from Trion, behind the fabulous RIFT. New weapons, skills and specialities will be gradually unlocked as you upgrade, and some skills like “creating holograms to distract enemies and lassoing enemies with an energy rope” sound really cool and stunning.
