Video: The altered world of Defiance

SyFy has posted a new Defiance clip depicting a “changed world.”

Defiance can best be described as an upcoming cross-media sci-fi story from Syfy and Trion Worlds.

The television serial and video game of the same name will be tied together by the movement of characters between the environments, so that the actions of one affect the other.

The official synopsis of the show is thus:

“In the year 2046, it’s a new Earth – with new rules. Over thirty years after various alien races arrived on Earth, the landscape is completely altered, terraformed nearly beyond recognition. To the town of Defiance, on what used to be St. Louis, comes the mysterious Nolan and his charge, Irisa.

“As they settle into town – overseen by the mayor, Amanda Rosewater and filled with residents like the powerful Rafe McCawley, enterprising lounge owner Kenya and the ambitious, alien Tarrs – events begin to unfold that threaten the fragile peace this border town has fought for.”

It should be noted that SyFy recently released the first 14 minutes of the upcoming pilot episode of Defiance, which can be viewed below.
