Trion Worlds announced today that more than one million Defiance accounts have been created since the launch of the open world shooter one month ago today. Fans of both the game and show have truly immersed themselves into the futuristic world of Defiance, with gamers eclipsing major milestones in-game, while digital TV viewers have tuned in at record numbers for the first two episodes.
Killing hellbugs, driving ATVs and triggering Arkfalls are among the top in-game activities:
- The not so cute or cuddly hellbugs have put up a good fight, but gamers are showing an incredible love for dropkicking, exploding and decimating them by annihilating more than 500,000,000 hellbugs to date.
- Jumping on their ATV and cruising around the Badlands has led to gamers driving 50,000,000 miles around the terra-formed Bay Area.
- Banding together, Ark Hunters have engaged in triggering and battling back an incredible 1,000,000 Arkfalls.
Defiance is the first multi-platform online 3rd person shooter which, in a ground-breaking entertainment experience, interconnects with a global television series on Syfy, cable’s premier imagination based entertainment channel. The game is being developed by Trion Worlds for the PC, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
In Defiance you will join a futuristic online open-world shooter where thousands of players scour a transformed Earth competing for alien technology. Hunt alone or with others as you improve your skills and level up unlocking powerful weapons that will help you survive the massive battles that await.
The creative forces behind Defiance have worked on the top online games of the past decade, including RIFT, Everquest, and Borderlands.
