Defiance -- one-part Trion Worlds MMO, one part SyFy TV series -- will launch in April. A.K.A. a month that investors are really hoping Breaking Bad and Grand Theft Auto V don't share.

The standard release for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 is priced at $59.99. There will also be a Collectors edition and limited Ultimate edition (no price tags on those yet).

I visited the set of the TV show and played the game, last fall, coming away impressed more by the grand ambitions of its creators than the quality of the project (in its early state). Only time will tell if both sides of the project succeed in-tandem, individually, or if one drags the other down. Even if it's not a very exciting show to watch or game to play, I still plan to watch how this lofty project pans out.

On a positive note, reception was fairly good for the beta that launched earlier this month. Keep an eye turned to Destructoid, as we may have more codes for the upcoming February beta.

Take a chance on Defiance now that it's going free-to-play

To me, Defiance always looked like one of those games I'd probably enjoy a lot more if I didn't have to pay a monthly fee for it. The show didn't strike me as too great, but I figured I'd give the game a go if it ever went do...more

Impressions: Defiance

Please pardon the lazy portmanteau, but Defiance has sapped me of a great deal of my creativity. I'm tired, friends. The new MMO -- that's desperately trying not to be an MMO -- from Trion Worlds has toyed with me for th...more

The first two days of Defiance

Defiance, Trion Worlds's post-apocalyptic MMO shooter, came out a couple of days ago, and I've been courting it. We've gone on a few dates, but we're still getting to know each other, so it will likely be a couple of weeks un...more

Review in Progress: World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Patch 2.4)

Player-created Turks event in FFXIV: Just another reason why I love MMOs

MMOs usually have official "events" that are designed to get players to log in and play after extended periods of disinterest. They tend to involve holiday festivities of some sort, or in the case of some games, they make up ...more
