'Defiance' Marathon On Syfy, Free Weekend Trial On Steam

by Rainier on May 24, 2013 @ 2:13 a.m. PDT

In Defiance players are introduced to a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet ravaged by decades of conflict. The game combines the intense action of a 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.

On a future Earth ravaged by aliens and 50 years of global war, a civilization emerges that rejects the old ways to forge a new destiny in a wild frontier. Can the connection between a lawman trying to keep his town safe and a new kind of gold rush in San Francisco hold the only hope for a better future?

The game combines the intense action of a “AAA” console shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart weaves the rich tapestry of the world into a series with the scope, characters, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic. Because they exist in a single universe, the show and the game will influence each other and evolve together over time, with actions in both mediums driving the overall story of  Defiance

Fans interested in catching up on the series can do so throughout Memorial Day weekend as the first six episodes will air back-to-back on Monday, May 27th from 4-11pm on Syfy. All six episodes, and a season-to-date feature recap, will be available on Video on Demand (VOD) and for online viewing on Syfy.com throughout the weekend. In conjunction with the television replay, Trion will offer the opportunity for players who have not previously experienced the early TV tie-in game content to jump in-game and play alongside lead characters Nolan and Irisa in the early episodic content.

Gamers who have yet to explore the open world shooter can try it on PC for free on Steam from May 23rd at 10:00am PDT to May 26th at 1:00pm PDT. Steam is also offering a weekend long sale on Defiance for those whose thirst for alien technology and open world action isn’t satisfied by the trial. Both the Standard Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition will be 30% off.  In addition, Steam will also be running a sale on “Bits,” the in-game currency for Defiance, during which customers will get more “Bits” for their money.

Other retailers will also be running sales across all platforms during the Memorial Day Weekend.
