New Defiance Teaser Mixes Game and TV Series

The Syfy Channel and Game Developer Trion Worlds released a new and super brief teaser trailer for their new game Defiance last night. 

It’s an interesting bit of cross promotion as Defiance is not only a new MMO, it’s also a new television series airing on the Syfy channel next April. 

The game is described as a “combination of the intense action of a console third-person shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO” while the television show is said to “exude the scope, story and drama of a classic Science Fiction epic.”

The new teaser packs glimpses of the game as well as the television show into the small little 15 second package, which only serves to further whet the appetites of the Sci-Fi fans out there.  

I think lots of people will be keeping an eye on this unique cross-media idea when the game launches on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC the same time as the show premieres.
