Defiance Launch Trailer Celebrates the Game’s Release Today

Defiance-Launch-TrailerAn open-world Third Person Shooter with a tie-in TV show on SyFy? Okay, you have my interest piqued, Trion Worlds.

Although the TV show doesn’t start until April 16, the game (for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation) is available today, and you can even grab the collector’s edition (£64.99 on Console, £54.99 on PC) which includes in-game bonuses (sigh) and an exclusive Hellbug figurine (yay). There’s also a limited run of the Ultimate Edition (£89.99 console, £79.99 PC) which includes all of the items you’d get in the other versions, but also a season pass and a messenger bag; which sounds pretty cool.

“We’re incredibly proud that after five years of development, we are bringing this ambitious project to life.” said Nathan Richardsson, VP of Development for Trion and Executive Producer of Defiance. “The game launch is just the beginning of a truly unique entertainment experience and, in a couple weeks’ time, you’ll be able to tune into Syfy to see the story unfold, the characters develop, and realize transmedia entertainment unlike ever before.”

We’ve been following Defiance for quite some time now, and having hands on with the beta, we’re interested to see how the final version turned out. Stay tuned in the near future for our review, obviously.

Check out the launch trailer, below.

Defiance is released today for Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    Okay, cool.

    “An open-world First Person Shooter with a tie-in TV show on SyFy? Okay, you have my interest piqued, Trion Worlds.”

    An FPS you say? You oversee most of the content on this site, claim to have followed a game for quite some time, AND played it. Yet, in the first sentence, you call the game a first person shooter? C’mon. Not trying to be a dick, but seriously. Come on. If you even slightly followed the game, you’d know it’s a TPS.

    No, and fair play for calling me out on that. I have a massive mental block on this game and Warface, both being published by Trion Worlds, I keep getting them mixed up! It didn’t help matters when they released “weapon customisation” trailers for both games on the same day, a few weeks back.

    I did also use the royal “we” there, as a fair few of our staff have played the PC and Console (360 specifically) beta, but sadly I actually haven’t had a chance to play the game yet.

    Apologies, was a genuine slip up, and not an attempt to make out I’ve played the game, because I haven’t, yet – but our staff have :-) But we, as a publication, have been following the game. Again, sorry for the confusion.

    No worries, like I said, I wasn’t trying to be a dick or anything. As a journalist myself it’s just a pet peeve of mine. We all do our best to provide coverage for gamers and the occasional slip up happens. But hey, things like this will put you on the edge of your toes in the future. I know it did for me when I had a few slip ups.

    Anyways, great trailer. Pre-ordered the game off Steam after trying the beta. Nothing revolutionary in terms of gameplay mechanics but man, it sure is a hell of a lot of fun to play. Can’t wait to dive in tomorrow. You should seriously get around to checking it out. Loads of fun ^_^

    I absolutely acknowledge that I’m not perfect, and if I make a mistake I’d always like to be told, otherwise, how can I improve? :-) Definitely don’t think you’re a dick, hehe.

    I am genuinely interested in the game, because of the SyFy tie-in, it’s an interesting idea. But, I’ve heard mixed thoughts on the beta. I hope to get to play it soon, though.
