In March of last year, we told you about an incredibly ambitious new project being developed by Syfy and Trion, the game studio behind the highly popular MMORPG Rift. The epic plan was to create both an online video game and an original TV series that were set in the same world, and as the story of the show progresses, writers would incorporate significant moments from the game into the show, allowing players to be a real part of the show they’re watching.
The very idea is awe-inspiring, but it’s also easy to dismiss it as too much to pull off. Thankfully, those involved in the project, which is being called Defiance, were on hand at E3 to give us our first look at both the game and the show, so you can get a much better idea of what they’ll look like.
