Namco Bandai has revealed that Defiance will be available in stores on April 2, 2013, for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Join the open-world adventure in a distant future where Earth has become almost nonexistent. Are you ready to fight for mankind?
From the Press Release
Leading video game publisher/developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. and Trion Worlds, the leading global developer and publisher of premium connected video games, have signed an agreement for the retail distribution of the highly anticipated, massive open-world shooter Defiance.
Following this agreement, NAMCO BANDAI will distribute Defiance for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Windows-based PCs at video game retailers in North and Latin America in April.
Defiance is an immersive online open-world shooter set in a future shattered Earth. Defiance delivers a revolutionary trans-media experience, as the game will launch alongside the original Syfy® Channel TV show “Defiance” with events from each impacting the other’s evolution. The game combines the intense action of a console third-person shooter with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online game), while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic.
“We’re delighted to be working with NAMCO BANDAI, a great company with a proven track record in bringing big games successfully to the market thanks to their great distribution network and excellent relationship with retailers,” said Keri Taylor, Director of Sales, Trion Worlds.
“With its direct connection with the Syfy television show, Defiance is breaking new ground in dynamic storytelling within video games,” says Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “Never in the history of video games has player interactions and video game scenarios had a direct effect on a television show’s storyline and vice versa. We’re excited to see Defiance provide pulse pounding entertainment on two fronts!”
Defiance is scheduled to be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system, and Windows PC at North and Latin American retailers April 2, 2013.
