We’ve been hearing about the new SyFy series Defiance for a while. The new show will be linked to a MMO shooter by Trion (the RIFT people), where the actions of people in the game will affect the storyline of the series. It’s a seriously cool concept, and as the game will be multiplatform on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation; it’ll have a very large audience playing it. The show starts April 15th, and the game comes out April 30th.
