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.


Redwood Shores, CA (April 30, 2013) Defiance™, the groundbreaking futuristic online open world shooter from Trion Worlds has announced its first contest merging the two worlds of Defiance. Nolan and Irisa crossed from the game to the show, and now players have the chance to follow in their footsteps! To win, fans must outgun the competition in game from April 30 - May 12 to see themselves on an upcoming episode of Defiance on the Syfy channel.

Here’s how the contest works: the ark hunter earning the most ark salvage per hour (excluding ark salvage earned from the Salvage Matrix) during their time played over the course of the contest will win. Only players who register for the contest and complete both “Most Wanted” pursuits will be eligible to win. All registrants must complete both the “Most Wanted: Competitor” and “Most Wanted: Rogue’s Gallery” in-game pursuits between 12:00am PDT April 30 and 11:59pm PDT May 12.

Both pursuits will be in-game in the “Goals” section of the GO menu starting at 12:00am PDT April 30. The “Rogue’s Gallery” pursuit tasks you with eliminating various mutants, raiders, 99ers, and more, while the “Competitor” pursuit pits you against other ark hunters in team-based PvP and Shadow War modes. The winner will have artists from the Defiance series render their character’s likeness into a special place in an upcoming episode.
