Tied together with a TV show launching on SyFY, Defiance depicts how in the near future, Earth has become a battleground between humans and a hostile alien race. The ambitious MMO shooter has several events planned to cross over with the TV series, and offers numerous PvE challenges for players.
Check out on Sarah LeBoeuf's full preview of Defiance here.
Sarah LeBoeuf's: While I was waiting for one of the developers during my demo, I picked up a controller and started playing. It only took a few seconds to figure out what I was supposed to do. Even though it's an MMO, it's completely intuitive to anyone who's played a third-person shooter before, and it was nice to not need a bunch of instructions before I could proceed. I saw a marker on my map in the distance, hopped on an ATV, and made my way over to a massive fight between humans and Hellbugs, the nightmarish creatures that are the result of decades of war between Earthlings and aliens. I jumped into the action, helping my fellow humans take out the bugs and picking up some loot along the way.
