The lights are on
Winners have been chosen!
Congratulations to Azaiatavin, TheBritishness, and Starbucknessmonster. Check for messages and get back to us with the info we requested. Thanks to all that entered.
As you might have heard, a few of us have been defending the San Francisco Bay Area (circa 2046) from mutants, raiders, and our favorite critters, the hellbugs. We've got two different contests to tell you about that will help you get into both the game and the show.
Trion Worlds and SyFy Channel have announced a new contest that will see an intrepid Ark Hunter rendered in an upcoming episode of Defiance. Trion and SyFy are being cryptic about how and where the winner will be featured, but it's very clearly not a walk-on role.
In order to enter, players must enter a special code into their account (code and instructions here), complete a player-vs-enemy and a player-vs-player "pursuit" (in-game goal set), and work to accumulate the most battle-won salvage. Full instructions are available on the official page, and the press release is on page two of this story.
Of course, you need to play the game in order to have an opportunity to win your appearance. We've got three copies of the Ultimate Edition of the game (which comes with a messenger bag, hellbug statue, art book, in-game perks and currency, and a one-year season pass. We've got one copy for each platform (PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3).
In order to win, tell us why you should win a copy of the game and how you're going to become the best ark hunter you can be. Leave a comment below, and be sure to note which platform you'd prefer. The drawing will end tomorrow, Wednesday May 1, at 5 PM Central.

I would be the best ark hunter because I wouldn't do it for the money, or the fame or the glory but to impress all those red-headed female Irathients. I do love me some redheads!
I should win a copy (for Xbox please) because I'm a really okay guy. People even like me.
What would I do to become the greatest ark hunter? Probably shoot things with my amazing science-fiction weapons. And accumulate experience. And then I would conquer the entire bay area with one of my destructinators.
Or something like that.
I had a chance to play the beta for the ps3, and that got me hooked! I was really looking forward to release so I could pick it up and get right back at it. I can say for sure that if you pick me, you'll get 3 ark hunters for the price of one. Both of my sons are HUGE gamers, and we had alot of fun smashing hellbugs and cruising around on the ATV together. Please GI, Hook us up!!
I played through the beta of the game, but sadly I do not have enough money to purchase this incredible title. I have been following the TV series and I absolutely love the world that has been created, and that is why I should receive this game on the Playstation 3. In order to become the best arc hunter I can be I will excel in player vs player, as I have done before, and work with my friends, as well as make new friends, to complete the game and have a great time. I can't overstate how much I want this game on the PS3.
im not really sure what this game is all about but it does look very intriguing and ive always wanted to try out an mmo before so please gameinformer give a xbox 360 copy to me please i would greatly apperciate it i would love to see what this game is all about.
Jesus, hopefully this doesn't reflect game sales and TV ratings..
I would love to win an xbox copy of Defiance, if only because my last roller got wrecked by the Spirit Riders, and me and my ark hunting crew need a new one, because everyone knows you don't go out into the wasteland without a gun on your hip and a roller underfoot.
I would be the best ark hunter, due to the fact that I have no remorse for others. I just want money and fame. 360
Oh forgot, PS3 version por favor!
I should win because....this feels like a first grade writing essay, and much like a slightly homicidal first grader- I will burn, squash, and mangle any (hell)bug I come across.
I will be the best ark hunter. Once I find an arc, I will hide behind a rock, with Karen Allen, whilst it melts the faces off of anyone foolish enough to gaze on it.
Because I'm freagen sick of MMOs always having the same mechanics, and something like Defiance, a shooter-ish game, seems like something fresh to me.
And I'll be the best ark hunter ever because Batman.
I would go all Jeff Goldblum on people and use the power off my annoying fly buzzing to distract my competitors from their goals.
Not to mention, I bet the game would be pretty nice looking on PC.
