Defiance: An Ambitious Project That Blends Games And TV
Here's one you probably haven't heard much about:
It's called Defiance, an MMORPG combined with a third-person shooter format, which is slated to launch simultaneously for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. According to the Trion Worlds E3 presentation, this game is being created "in conjunction with the SyFy network, which plans to launch a TV series of the same name." Basically, the TV series and the game will continue to adopt storylines and plots from each other, which sounds liked a wicked cool - and highly ambitious - idea.
The solar system is collapsing and in a last-ditch effort, alien societies create arks and fill them with flora, fauna and inhabitants of their home world. The goal is to send these arks out into space and hopefully find an uninhabited yet hospitable planet. They find such a planet, but it ain't inhabited. It's our planet, and humans don't take kindly to the onslaught of arks hurtling towards Earth. Later, humans and aliens must find a way to coexist. ...this has a whole lot of potential, yes?
This is a very interesting idea and one we'll have to keep an eye on.
