The next step in MMO, Cross platform and fun: Defiance!

 

A new cross platform game is being developed called Defiance. Why is this special? Because this events that happen in the online game can affect the story line of the TV show of the same name, due to air Monday, April 15, 2013 at 9:00 pm Eastern/8:00 pm Central.

From the website:

Defiance™ is the first multi-platform shooter MMO, that in a ground-breaking entertainment experience, interconnects with a global television program on Syfy. The game combines the intense action of a console third-person 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.

Being developed for the PC, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system,Defiance unites the MMORPG and Shooter game genres across the most popular platforms.

They are only accepting beta applications at this time, but who wouldn’t want to try this one out? In the past, SyFy has made some lame and under-par offerings in the genre. We can only hope that it’s as good as the hype behind it.
