Syfy and Trion Worlds have announced their new "Play the Game, Join the Show" contest for the online open world shooter, Defiance
. Through the contest, players can earn the opportunity to see their own in-game character appear in the upcoming second season of the Defiance
television series. This certainly sounds more ambitious than their first contest, which had one lucky winner's likeness appear in a wanted poster on an episode of the show.
This latest contest is simple in theory; all you need to do is sign up here
, and then fight to be one of the top ten Ark Hunters in the game between July 8th (10am PDT) and July 30th (10am PDT). These top ten Ark Hunters will then have fully detailed character biographies written up by the show's professional staff. The characters will then be posted online where they will be subjected to a Facebook popularity contest by fans between August 26th (3am PDT) and September 6th (8:59pm PDT).
Once these ten characters have been whittled down to just five based on the Facebook votes, a member of the Defiance team will select only one of these to ultimately appear in the television series that returns to Syfy in 2014.
How cool is that? It's time to get Ark Hunting in Defiance
