Defiance is an upcoming online MMO that is arguably the world’s first online game and TV show combined. The game is a third person shooter set in a sci-fi fantasy setting where humans and aliens exist on Earth. The main facet to this game that separates it from other online video-games is the TV show that will interchangeably affect and be affected by changes in the online world. The TV show will offer drama, story and entertainment coupled with the immersive game itself. This game is also being developed by Trion Worlds, the company that created another well known MMORPG called Rift. Overall, Defiance takes on a whole new approach to providing entertainment for gamers; I’m definitely excited to see how well this game/TV show combination works out.
