Defiance is a free-to-play open-world third-person shooter developed by Trion Worlds for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 4 that blends the world of the SyFy show with a virtual world. It was originally a buy-to-play game, but went free-to-play on on June 4, 2014. Set in a post-apocalyptic San Francisco several decades after a war ravaged the world and left much of it destroyed, Defiance gives players the chance to become an Ark Hunter, scouring the world for new technologies that will help them in further expeditions.
Origins: Become a Veteran, Machinist, Outlaw, or Survivalist. Your chosen origin only determines your character's backstory and initial starting gear which can be swapped out for new gear as soon as you complete the tutorial.
Ark Falls: Global Events called Ark Falls can happen at a moment's notice, requiring players to band together and form raid parties to take down the horrendous creatures that are created. Complete an Ark Fall and you could receive some great loot for your efforts!
SyFy Series Correlation: Defiance the game is very much tied to Defiance the SyFy Series. Watch as the game world changes and unfolds in ways that reflect how the television series is developing!
