The long awaited merging of MMORPG (Massively Multi-Player Online Role Playing Game) and science fiction television is coming to fruition with the collaboration of Syfy and Trion Worlds in the form of "Defiance".
Syfy will write and produce the television show with Trion Worlds heading up the video game side of things.
Trion is the gaming software corporation that about a year ago released the 2011 Best Persistent World/MMO Game "Rift", which I am an avid player. When I recently heard of a sci-fi tv show and a MMO intergrated..."It don't get much better." was the thought filtering through my gray matter.
We dont know much about the series from our usual sources, but in a recent post on blastr.com, a writer and cast list has been released.
In lieu of re-writing someone elses words, here is the link to read for yourself. It has piqued my curiosity for sure.
Also a link to the game trailer.
