Defyance Is A Syfy Shooter With Frytful Guns

Sy-Fy-Fo-Fum, I smell the walnut-infused mocchiatocinospresso of a marketing man. I still can't quite believe that the Sci-Fi Channel is called the Syfy Channel now and I'm also bewildered by the fact that Defiance, an open-world shooter that is linked with a new TV series, actually looks quite good. It should be awful, clearly, because these sort of transmedia efforts have the dual stench of…

Defiance Gets Release Date, Defies Subscription Fees

Frankly, I would've been utterly dumbfounded if Trion Worlds defied all reason by saddling Defiance with a subscription fee, but TV changes people. Maybe being front-and-center on Syfy would've convinced some exec that Defiance is different. It can have subscription fees and its own three-story trailer-yacht and a special pen on set for its pet orangutan, Mr Screams-A-Lot. And also a rapidly developing coke habit that…

As Seen On PC: Defiance Beta Begins This Month

Games and TV haven't exactly had the best relationship over the years. Nor have games and movies, or books, or pretty much anything that's not games. I've wondered for quite a while, though, whether transmedia's series of spectacular face-plants has been due to fundamental incompatibility between mediums or a simple lack of meaningful collaboration. Defiance - with its frequent, meticulously planned crossovers - might be…

Defiance Dev Diary Details Deadly Dalliances

Someone is going to crack the open-world shooter, and when they do I'll be there with the huggiest hug of all hugs. With Firefall and Planetside 2 already out (ish), and Defiance coming, it feels like there's a movement. The problems that have kept these kinds of games from proliferating will now have three development teams trying to fix them. But what game to choose?…

Good Day To Defy: Defiance Shoots For A Seamless World

I must confess that, for the longest time, Defiance was just "that game with its own Syfy TV show" to me - probably because that seems to be exactly what Trion and Syfy wanted me to think. Well, they probably also wanted me to think "Syfy, a magical one-stop destination for all my science fiction and Sharktopus needs that I don't totally begrudge for unceremoniously…

Defiance Offers Facts And Screenshots

One of the more unusual announcements from E3 was that of Defiance, a cross-platform MMO, that is also a cross-media project incorporating a TV show alongside the game. It's being developed by Trion Worlds (of Rift) and the television channel SyFy. Anyway, it turns out that the game is "set in a futuristic San Francisco Bay Area", and will be a mission-based third-person shooter, in…

Trion’s Defiance MMOFPS Is Intriguing

Trion and the tediously-named SyFy TV channel are teaming up to create a multiplatform MMOFPS that somehow links into a TV show, apparently going as far as featuring player's characters in the TV show part of it. The project is called Defiance, and there's a teaser trailer below showing flowers, part of an insectile monster, a heavily modified Golden Gate bridge, and a man with…

Galactica Cast Get Another Paycheque

Catching up with some news from the back end of last week!

Battlestar Galactica Online Is Coming

Oh no! RPS's TV-news champion John Walker is unavailable to post this news because he is stricken with gut-horror and must away to bed. The more mite! RPS readership, please use your psychic powers en masse to make him better. Anyway, German browser-MMO types Bigpoint are making a Battlestar game. It's being developed in the Unity engine as a browser-embedded 3D game, seemingly to be…
