Experimental third-person multiplayer shooter game Defiance will this week be released in Australia on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The open world, multiplatform MMO shooter is based on a science-fiction universe interconnected with a television show of the same name.
To be aired on television network Syfy from April 15, the Defiance television show pledges to change its storyline based on what players get up to in the game.
Defiance takes place on a futuristic Earth, transformed by a world-wide terraforming event. The game is set in the San Francisco Bay Area, whereas the TV series will take place in St. Louis.
To accompany the announcement developer Trion Worlds also released a full-length Join the Fight live action trailer, which shows the game's Ark Hunters fighting enormous antagonistic crustaceans known as Hellbugs.
Trion Worlds is no stranger to the massively multiplayer online genre, having released MMORPG Rift to positive reception in 2011. For more on Defiance, check out GameSpot’s interview with the developers.
