Defiance pre-order bonuses and beta detailed

Trion lock down details for new gaming-TV sci-fi crossover

Defiance the new cross-platform, cross-media massively multiplayer shooter is now available for pre-order and publisher Trion has revealed both pre-order bonuses and beta details for the game.

Defiance, which is pegged as a massively multiplayer open world co-op shooter will be playable cross-platform on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The game is closely linked with the new Defiance sci-fi show which launches simultaneously on the Sy Fy channel this April, with in-game events sparked by the TV show and characters and plot lines transferring from show to game and vice versa.


Following the aftermath of an alien invasion and catastrophic war, players take on the role of an ark hunter in a post apocalyptic world with both on-foot and vehicular combat featuring heavily and a big emphasis on co-operative play.
