GEEK ALERT: SyFy Unveils First Trailer For Transmedia Series, ‘Defiance’

We’ve been following the development of Defiance, the “transmedia” television series/MMORPG over the last two years with great anticipation and SyFy has finally confirmed a premiere date of April, 2013 and released the first trailer for the television series and we, of course, have it for you.  If you haven’t heard about the Defiance project, here’s a brief summary:

Set on a future Earth, Defiance introduces players and Syfy viewers to a world ravaged by decades of conflict, where humans and aliens live together in a world the likes of which no one has seen. The game combines the frenetic action of a top-tier console 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. The game’s story will take place in the San Francisco bay area, while the TV series will be set just outside of St. Louis, MO. Because they exist in a single universe, the show and the game will influence and evolve each other over time, with actions in both mediums driving the overall story of Defiance.

Since we dropped the ball on this when the video game trailer debuted at E3, we thought it only fair to include it here along with the awesome “making of” video that explains the whole concept of the project.  First, though, as promised, the first trailer for the new TV series.  Please tell us what you think!

  1. The effects look a bit tv-ish, but that´s ok – it still looks like this is going to be a cool series. I hope, that it will then be available as DVD-set, too (don´t have the time to wtch tv 😦
