About Defiance

In Defiance players and viewers are introduced to a world where humans and aliens try to make a new life together on a planet ravaged by decades of conflict. The game combines the intense action of a third-person shooter with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and character-driven drama of a classic science fiction epic. Because they exist in a single universe, the show and the game will influence each other and evolve together over time, with actions in both mediums driving the overall story of Defiance.
