Defiance Guide


Defiance is an innovative, new TV series and video game. The two work together to form a more immersive gaming experience through the use of episode tie-ins and cross-promotion. It is the imaginative work of TV network, Syfy, in cooperation with game developer, Trion Worlds.

The Defiance game is a massively multiplayer online (MMO) shooter. Players take on the role of an Ark Hunter, a hired goon per se, that has to fight against alien bugs (hellbugs), crazed humans, power-hungry villains, and other alien races to secure alien technology for companies in the world.

The game was released on April 2nd, 2013 for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 consoles as well as the PC. While it hasn’t done insanely well in comparison to other major MMOs, it has managed to grab the attention of over 1 million gamers across all platforms.

Defiance has received mostly mediocre reviews since its launch. In most cases major review sites gave the game a 60-65% rating (or 5.5 to 6 out of 10). This essentially means that the game isn’t terrible but it isn’t great either.

The TV show has similarly received mediocre reviews but has held decent enough ratings on the Syfy network to be renewed for a second season.
