Syfy has released a trailer for its upcoming series Defiance, the network's innovative new series that combines online gaming and narrative television. Grant Bowler and Julie Benz star in the futuristic look at an Earth that has been altered by the arrival of seven alien races. Before the Season 1 Premire on April 15, an online game will be released where players can go on their own adventures in San Francisco, while following the primary story line of the TV series set in St. Louis. Take a look at the latest footage from this groundbreaking new sci-fi drama.
Set in the near future, Defiance introduces an exotically transformed planet Earth, its landscapes permanently altered following the sudden - and tumultuous - arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly-formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully. Each week, viewers will follow an immersive character drama set in the boom-town of Defiance, which sits atop the ruins of St. Louis, MO, while in The Game, players will adventure in the new frontier of the San Francisco Bay area. The dramatic tapestry of the series and the intense action of The Game will exist in a single universe where their respective narratives will inform one another and evolve together into one overall story.
