Ten things to know about Defiance photo
Ten things to know about Defiance
by Jayson Napolitano

Defiance is SyFy and Trion Worlds’ venture that breaks new ground by simultaneously developing a television series and videogame within the same universe, and even sharing a few characters between the two. We were only given a sneak peek of the television series here at San Diego Comic-Con with a brief trailer, but we were able to spend a lot of time with the Trion Worlds-developed MMO, speaking with Nick Beliaff, vice president of development, and Ron Hill, senior producer, about the game.

We gathered a lot of information about the game’s intriguing story, San Francisco and Bay Area setting, dynamic in-game events, music, and gameplay. If you’re interested in this game or are looking for more details about the world of Defiance, check this out in conjunction with our hands-on preview from a couple months back.
