Trion Worlds has announced a global Defiance release date of April 2.
The futuristic shooter MMOG is due to launch on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC ahead of the debut of the April 15 debut of the Syfy TV show, which is being produced in collaboration with Trion.
Multiple game bundles, both digital and physical, are now available to pre-order starting at £34.99. Earlier this month Trion revealed Defiance pre-order bonuses and beta details for the open world game.
Following the aftermath of an alien invasion and catastrophic war, Defiance sees players take on the role of an Ark Hunter in a post apocalyptic world offering on-foot and vehicular combat with a big emphasis on cooperative play.
"In terms of ambition and scope, Defiance's transmedia features make it unlike any other entertainment experience," claimed Nathan Richardsson, Trion's vice president of development and Defiance's executive producer.
Check out the new live action game trailer titled 'Join the Fight' below. According to Trion, it showcases the "action packed life of an Ark Hunter on the new frontier of a transformed Earth, as a massive group of fortune hunters race to an Arkfall site in search of riches".
