Trion Worlds’ newest title scores big.
Trion Worlds’ Nathan Richardsson stated that, “We’re incredibly proud that after five years of development, we are bringing this ambitious project to life. The game launch is just the beginning of a truly unique entertainment experience.” This experience has since been described as “transmedia”.
The developer has also released a range of stats detailing the activity of its players: So far, 500 million hellbugs have been killed, with 1 million Arkfalls – chunks of alien ships – battled across and a total of 50 million miles have been driven across.
Defiance ties in with SyFy’s TV series of the same name. It is an off-shoot that is meant to run parallel to the show. Releasing on April 2nd for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, it debuted strongly on Steam with multiple pre-orders before its release.
