Defiance, the upcoming massive online third person shooter in development at Trion Worlds, will be released for the PS3, 360, and PC on Tuesday, April 2nd. In just a few weeks, you and your friends will brave the wilds of the San Francisco Bay Area, hunting down precious arktech, taking down mutants and alien monsters, and battling with and against hundreds of other players. If they can pull that off smoothly, it’ll be sick to be sure.To accompany the game, TV show on Syfy will launch the same month. Set in St. Louis, the series will chronicle the lives of humans and aliens in St. Louis. Since the show and game take place at the same time, both show and game will overlap the weeks pass. Defiance premieres Monday, April 15th at 9:00pm / 8:00pm Central.
