Defiance is a newly released 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 taking place 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 and the TV show will be aired by Syfy. Another thing that differentiates this MMO from others is the fact that the game is a shooter as opposed to a fantasy or medieval-themed hack and slash game. It’s available on the Xbox 360, PC and PS3 which makes it a potentially successful multi-platform MMO. Lastly, the game also requires no monthly fee or subscription in order to play; it’s a simple one time buy and play forever type of deal which may make it more appealing when compared to many other MMO’s which require monthly payments. 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.
