Trion Worlds' groundbreaking sci-fi video game Defiance has been unveiled as the lead sponsor for this October's MCM London Comic Con, Britain's biggest festival of modern pop culture. Due to be released in April 2013, the highly anticipated Defiance is a true genre revolution - a multiplatform online shooter that will interconnect with an upcoming Syfy Network television series set in the same universe.
MCM London Comic Con has seen a huge growth in numbers in recent years, and is expected to exceed 70,000 over the three day show at London’s ExCeL this October - making the event the perfect platform for product launches and promotions.
Defiance is the first of its kind – a unique and never-before-attempted entertainment experience that seamlessly melds together a video game and TV series. We’re delighted to be involved with MCM London Comic Con and to begin building the excitement for Defiance among UK and European science-fiction fans. - John Burns, SVP and GM Trion Europe
In Defiance, players are introduced to a future where humans and several alien species live together on an Earth ravaged by decades of war. Set in an alien terraformed San Francisco Bay Area, the game blends intense third-person shooter action with persistence, scale, and deep customization. An immersive story will evolve alongside the events of the TV series.
