Trion Worlds open-world shooter MMO reaches a new milestone.

Defiance: First Beta Event Dated for January 20th

It's not difficult to see the appeal in tackling a massive open-world with your friends online.

The ambitious shooter MMO will host its first beta event on January 20th, exclusively for PC users.

The ‘Advanced Beta Mission 1′ event represents the first hands-on opportunity players will have with Defiance, and features full access to the game’s tutorial zone Mt. Tam as well as two different competitive multiplayer modes. All this content sounds much like the preview slice we had access to before Christmas, and you can read our thoughts on our extensive hands-on with the game here.

Defiance’s headline grabbing feature is how it ties in with the Syfi channel TV show of the same name. Events in this new futuristic universe, created by the folks behind Battlestar Galactica, bind both media entities together, but from our experiences at least the game seems good enough to stand on its own. To register to be part of the game’s beta be sure to visit Defiance’s official website.

Trion World’s next big MMO experience will be available on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this April.
