The lights are on
Get a sneak peek at the cross-platform MMO that runs alongside the upcoming SyFy television series by throwing your name in for Defiance’s Advanced Mission Beta 1.
Players brave the many dangers of Defiance’s near-future San Francisco as genetically modified “ark hunters.” Mutated beasts roam the transformed landscape, alien sentinels stand watch over mysterious artifacts, and hostile humans open fire on anyone they don’t recognize. The unbelievable prices that pieces of recovered alien technology command make it all worthwhile for the ark hunters who make it back alive, though.
This first beta – available unsurprisingly only on PC, though the final game is set for PS3 and Xbox 360 as well – encompasses the tutorial, the Mt. Tam setting, one competitive multiplayer map, the Shadow War open-world PvP, and Arkfall cooperative boss fight. Sign up at the in-fiction Von Bach Industries website to punch your ticket to alien shootin’, 2013 style. See the trailer for the TV series below for a look at the world the MMO co-habitates, or maybe even read my hands-on impressions from last year's E3 if you're feeling particularly saucy.

Hmmm. . .
Trion - "NOTE: This test is for PC users only. Details on console betas will follow in the future!"
Its times like this that I'm happy I migrated over to PC!
Well that sounds interesting.
Reminds a bit like the book series Wild Cards. George R.R. Martin. Similar idea. Only IMO more awesome. Good series. I highly recommend checking it out.
Never heard of it, but if I can, sure I will give it a try.
That... was quick... accepted to beta :D
An MMO on the PS3 and Xbox 360. I highly doubt it. Sony has canceleed so many MMOs for the PS3. I also highly doubt this will see the light of day on the Xbox 360 either. Microsoft has shot down many attempts at MMOs already as well.
...did he just end his article with the word 'saucy'? ...respect.
No harm in signing up for the beta and trying it out. Sounds interesting.
this will be as much of a console MMO as Two worlds was.....
Wait! What is this? I've never heard of this one.
