The lights are on
It's easy to mistake MMOs for a series of unrelated fetch quests, but the good ones have an interesting story to tell. Defiance is an ambitious project, combining a new SyFy television series with Trion Worlds' open-world, persistent shooter.
The story needs to be balanced and complete enough independently while still offering something for those engaged in both halves of the experience. In this latest trailer, Trion Worlds gives players a look at life as an ark hunter. Finding new technology, fighting hellbugs, and laying waste to the mutant menace are all in a day's work on the frontier.
Defiance is currently getting its first major patch, though not without a few hiccups. You can check out our impressions and listen in on the most recent episode of Respec Radio for our take on the game.

Hopefully the arkfall raid showed here will be added because it looks much closer to how the show describes arkfalls as compared to what we are experiencing in the game... lovin the game so far tho haven't been hooked like this in a while
