The upcoming Syfy series Defiance looks to be a true FX extravaganza, and a new trailer shows off some of the big-budget set pieces that are in store on post-invasion Earth.

The latest footage digs a little deeper into the world of Defiance, which picks up in the wake of an alien invasion that finds humanity just one of many competing races on the planet we call home. We see a ton of huge alien battles, and some hints of political intrigue in the namesake town.

In addition to the Syfy series, the events of Defiance will also play out in a shared-universe videogame that ties in to the storylines in the TV series. Ambitious? Absolutely. Here’s hoping they can pull it off.

The expansive cast features several sci-fi alums, including Grant Bowler (True Blood), Julie Benz (Dexter), Jaime Murray (Warehouse 13) and Tony Curran (Blade II).

The series debuts Monday, April 15. Until then, check out the latest trailer below:
