Defiance E3 trailer shows the Syfy MMO in action

Trion has released the official E3 trailer for Defiance, its upcoming MMOFPS that will tie-in to a live-action television show on the Syfy Network that's scheduled for an April 2013 launch. We'd be skeptical if it wasn't for the developer's sterling record thus far, which turns our general sense of unease about a game being merged with a show into pure excitement. Take a look at the trailer and you might understand why.

Beyond having a cool song behind the trailer (which always helps), the gameplay looks very slick. It sort of looks like Rift mixed with Borderlands and Halo - and we're not about to complain about a blending of those three games.

We'll be seeing the game at E3 next week, so be sure to swing back to find out how it actually plays, since we figure that's going to be important, too.

    I cant believe more people arent talkng about this, it sounds really cool. Actually i saw a much better story on this video game/tvshow combo on FOX NEWS. Thats right mfers the network everyone is always talking shit about cause they think games are dumb. Well watching the interview they had with the ceo of trion was much better than this story from the games site. Anyways since the story here doesn't cover it ill fill yall in its a microtransaction free to play thing that actually may be sweet because what happens online in the game will impact the tvshow and vise versa. Its a cool concept i hope it pays off for them.

    There's only one thing I have to comment on regarding your post. People don't talk shit about Fox News because they are largely anti-gaming. They talk shit because they are largely biased assholes. i.e. Bill O'Reilly.

    Umm lets are wrong. Why dont you people sit there and claim something is biased, do you even know what the word means? Whos the biased ones when people like you wont even listen or give anything a chance to do anything? Sounds like you are the biased one. Oh and to completely destroy your so called point here, the following is a quote directly from an article done HERE by David Houghton, see if it looks like he says FOX is bad becuase they bash games or just because they are biased like Bill O'riely...who again is NOT biased and gives both sides to stories you idiot. Have you even ever WATCHED his show? I would bet not because YOU sir are the one who is biased. Sorry had to rant, heres the quote: "But gamers have a special relationship with Fox News. The station has been synonymous with misguided game-bashing for years now, and certainly no stranger to using skewed reinterpretations of the actual facts of in-game content in order to make a flailing pseudo-point." Ok ball is in your court now, please show us how non biased you are.
