Syfy’s Defiance is an ambitious project. Not only does it involve the TV series that premieres on Monday, April 15th, but the action also unfolds across an online multiplayer game where the world changes according to what goes down on your TV. We’re less than a week out, and the network has released another new trailer to pique your interest.
Defiance is set in the year 2046, after an alien invasion, and this latest video really plays up the frontier Western vibe of the show, as well as the immigrant drama nature of the story. St. Louis, now known as Defiance, has become a new kind of melting pot. Instead of settlers from all over the world, the residents of Defiance are a hodge-podge of races and species from all over the universe. It’s the kind of place where you occasionally need to fight a big, shirtless blue dude in an underground arena.
