The action-packed tie-in game for Syfy's new series Defiance is finally here!

After months of anticipation, the online 3rd person shooter from Trion Worlds (makers of Rift) is available today for PC, PS3 and XBox 360. Set in a future Earth that's been radically altered by alien conflicts and terraforming, you play as an "Ark Hunter," tasked with tracking down alien technology from "Arkfalls," pieces of a destroyed alien fleet that periodically fall to the surface. You can choose to play as either a human or an alien, fight alone or with a group of other players, choose from a wide variety of weapons and modify them with alien tech, and travel the game's open world with a range of vehicles. As you play, events in the game will impact the Defiance TV series, and events in the TV series will impact the game, for a tie-in experience unlike any other. 

Check out the full Defiance launch trailer below, then run out and get your copy. Defiance the series premieres April 15th at 9/8C on Syfy.
