Yesterday Trion worlds announced that Defiance, the first transmedia gaming experience to hit the industry will launch on April 2nd.

“In terms of ambition and scope, Defiance’s transmedia features make it unlike any other entertainment experience. After five years of development, it brings great pride to the Trion and Syfy teams seeing Defiance come to fruition” said Nathan Richardsson, Trion’s VP of Development and Defiance Executive Producer.

Trion World's also released a new trailer, “Join the Fight”, featuring life as an Ark Hunter on the newly terraformed Earth.  Let’s take a look.

 

Set in the arid desert, the trailer combines the isolated, post-apocalyptic setting of Defiance with futuristic EGO technology and a Hellbug attack. This live action trailer gives further insight into the lives behind the Ark Hunters in Defiance, and how there is never a safe moment on this new, terraformed Earth.

In Defiance, players embark on a journey into a futuristic online open world shooter where the survival of Earth relies on their skills as an Ark Hunter, as they level up in massive co-op battles and fierce multiplayer combat. Players can also hunt alone while improving skills and unlocking powerful modern and alien weaponry that is essential for survival in the constantly evolving online world. Defiance invites gamers to explore vast landscapes on a variety of vehicles while leading the charge in huge co-op battles. Immerse yourself in the world of Defiance as the game impacts, and is impacted by, the Defiance TV series on Syfy.

Gamers can now pre-order Defiance online and at major game retailers, and choose from multiple game bundles, digital and physical, starting at R541 Standard, Collectors, and a very limited number of Ultimate editions are on sale now. Each package allows players to delve deeper, and more quickly, into the persistent futuristic universe where the survival of Earth relies on your skills as an Ark Hunter leveling up in massive co-op battles and fierce multiplayer combat.
