has had but one news article from ourselves since it was announced the MMO was coming to Xbox 360
. The original story gave us a rundown on what to expect from the title, which I'll reproduce here as it's been a while!
In Defiance players and viewers are introduced to a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet ravaged by decades of conflict. The game combines the intense action of a shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic.
