Around a dozen hours into my time with Defiance, I realised that I was having fun. Not the kind of fun that warrants an unreserved recommendation, but I had acclimated to the vagaries of Trion’s sci-fi MMO shooter in such a way that I was getting something out of it. My early impressions, however, were not good. When I started playing, I scooted around on a quadbike and blasted mutants and noticed all of the game’s faults.
A large number of staffers has been laid off from Defiance developer Trion Worlds. As reported by IGN, the number could be as high as 80% of the development staff, though Trion has called that number “exaggerated.”
The third person MMO based on the Syfy TV show is inching a little closer to “free to play” territory today by offering a free, 72 hour demo to those who are curious what the Bay Area looks like after the San Francisco Giants win a World Series.
Alright, yes—our Defiance review rated the MMO shooter as middling, bringing nothing spectacularly new to the table. But hey, maybe that's something for the DLC to patch up? Trion's just revealed they've planned five installments of DLC for release in Defiance's first year of existence, and content aside, the planned payment scheme has got an interesting twist.
Trion Worlds may have shuttered the San Diego studio that made the sci-fi MMO Defiance, but it seems its promise to support Defiance with five pieces of DLC is holding strong with the first DLC release—the Castithan Charge Pack.
When a giant monster with a head of aliens that shoots fireballs falls from the sky, you're going to want friends with large alien weaponry. The latest trailer for Defiance, the cross-platform MMOFPS from Trion Worlds that ties in with the SyFy TV show of the same name, shows us how that sort of battle takes place in Defiance. Their answer involves flying ATVs, tons of explosions, and at least one gratuitious boob shot.
Trion Worlds have announced that Defiance, their unusual MMO shooter/TV-show collaboration with SyFy, will be the lead sponsor of the 2013 SCI-FI-LONDON Film Festival, taking place at the BFI Southbank between April 30th and May 6th. Both endeavours will be present on the show floor, giving you the chance to experience hot media synergy in action.
You'll learn almost nothing about Defiance from the teaser trailer above, except that it's vaguely post-apocalyptic, and has big red animals in it. Behind that one minute flurry of ambiguity there's an intriguing idea for an MMO. Defiance is a massively multiplayer shooter that will tie into the upcoming Defiance TV series on Syfy. It's being developed by Rift developers, Trion Worlds, who say that events in the show will affect the world of the game, and vice versa. The TV series is being written by Rockne S. O'Bannon, whose previous work includes Warehouse 13, Alien Nation and Farscape. The game has been in development for three years. No release date yet.
I understand that Defiance is meant to be a "transmedia experience" - combining the co-op MMO shooter with a SyFy TV show - but with their new trailer, Trion Worlds are taking things to the extreme. It's a live action teaser for the game portion of the project, complete with some very CGI bug monsters for the Ark Hunters to battle. Maybe next we'll see an in-game trailer for the TV series, thereby completely blurring the media divide.
Sci-fi MMO-shooter Defiance is set to have another beta weekend and we have 500 ways for you to get in on the action. Kicking off this Friday evening, lucky recipients of keys will be unleashed into a shattered future-San Francisco, its remains picked over by feuding factions and infested with ferocious, mega-sized beasties. A thirdperson shooter, it's pitched as part PlanetSide and part Monster Hunter, and the trailers make its many-player battles against skyscraping insectoids look suitably epic. But why not see for yourself?
While previous Defiance trailers have focused on the unusual nature of Trion/SyFy's cross-media experiment, here we get something of much more interest to those planning to play it: Weapons! Weird weapons, too. There's a gun that hatches hideous giant tick-like things, one that shoots lightning, and one that grounds your enemies in place with sticky black goop. There's also one that shoots bullets into your opponents. For the traditionalists.
Defiance is an intriguing new MMO from Rift developer, Trion Worlds. It will be an open world shooter set on a post apocalyptic world shared by aliens and humans, and plans to tie in with the Syfy TV show of the same name. RPS have five new screenshots to add to the enigmatic E3 teaser trailer. You can read Josh's impressions from the E3 show floor, and see some of the promising concept art for the game here. You'll find the five new screens below.
Clearly I'm not the person you want to count on in a future world of aliens, Arc Hunters and cross-media synergy. The new TV tie-in update for Defiance challenges players to eradicate an infection and develop a cure to send to the titular town of the TV series. To which my response would be, "nope". Surely it'd make for better telly?
Update: Mysterious gaming sleuth superannuation is reporting a couplewhois searches for the Human Defiance domain shows CBS Films as the registrant, a strong suggestion that the title is for the upcoming film adaptation from CBS and Eidos Montreal. Previously, director Scott Derrickson and co-writer C. Robert Cargill said they're targeting a cyberpunk vibe for the film's theme. Original: Time to activate your speculation augmentation. You did all get that particular upgrade, right? Honestly, giant arm swords are all well and good, but they'll hardly help you to deal with the news that Square Enix have filed a new Deus Ex trademark. The trademark application - submitted February 26 and spotted by NeoGAF - is for Deus Ex: Human Defiance, and has a classification class that heavily focuses on words like "computer", "video", "game" and "software". What could it all mean?
Defiance has made the trailer rounds here for a number of months, showing a San Francisco Bay Area shuddering beneath an alien invasion as a narrative tie-in to the upcoming SyFy channel TV series.

I crouch atop a rusting industrial rig, scanning among the cargo containers below for signs of movement. A streak my enemy's green jumpsuit flickers beneath me, and I quickly scope in to line up my shot. But before I can pull the trigger, another shooter takes advantage of my moment of carelessness to blast a few needles into my face. The resulting boils attract a small army of headcrab-like alien fiends to my position and they promptly chew my face off. I can tell it's going to be a long day in post-apocalyptic San Francisco.
