Trion Worlds, announced today that the anticipated online open world shooter, Defiance, will launch globally on April 2nd.
Defiance is an immersive online open-world shooter for console and PC set in a future shattered Earth. A revolutionary transmedia experience, the game will launch alongside the original Syfy TV show Defiance, with events from each impacting the other’s evolution. The game combines the intense action of a console third-person shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic.

Set in the arid desert, this trailer combines the isolated, post-apocalyptic setting of Defiance with futuristic EGO technology and a Hellbug attack. This live action trailer gives further insight into the lives behind the Ark Hunters in Defiance, and how there is never a safe moment on this new, terraformed Earth. And here it is:
