Good for Syfy, good for Trion World’s game of the same name.
Why is the news worthy of a games site to report on? Well, Syfy’s Defiance is set in the same universe as the shooter MMO of the same name, developed by Trion Worlds which was released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC earlier this month.
It’s also worth noting that the 2.7 million figure doesn’t take into account UK viewing figures. The two-hour long début episode was shown on this side of the Atlantic on Tuesday night via Syfy UK, and it wasn’t actually terrible.
Sure the production levels were of a similar standard to Battlestar Galactica, meaning that the story grandeur sometimes pushed the Syfy’s cheap and cheerful CGI budget a bit too far, but the characters and the ‘FireFly on Earth‘ premise was interesting. The first hour was admittedly a bit slow with way too many characters being introduced altering the natural flow of the plot significantly, but overall the show imbued the kind of breezy sci-fi fun many epxect of Defiance in the first place.
If you’re interested in Defiance the show, feel free to head to Syfy’s official website where you can view the first five minutes of the début episode.
