Video explaining the new partnership between Syfy and Trion Worlds for Defiance:
This a great video from Trion Worlds explaining the joint venture between their company a SyFy for the development of ‘Defiance,’ the first crossover MMOG/live-action scripted television series in one. From the Hollywood Reporter:
Set on a future Earth, Defiance introduces players and Syfy viewers to a world ravaged by decades of conflict, where humans and aliens live together in a world the likes of which no one has seen. The game combines the frenetic action of a top-tier console shooter with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic. The game’s story will take place in the San Francisco bay area, while the TV series will be set just outside of St. Louis, MO. Because they exist in a single universe, the show and the game will influence and evolve each other over time, with actions in both mediums driving the overall story of Defiance.
