Trion’s Defiance, the platform-agnostic shooter-MMO that Stephen Totilo saw at E3, promises to deliver open-world action with thousands of simulataneous players. It’s also supposed to sync with an in-development SyFy TV series, so that developments in the game affect the show. That’s a tall order, right?
Imagine the lovechild that would emerge from the coupling of, say, Epic’s Gears of War and Zynga’s Adventure World. You’d get all the gritty action and polished mechanics of a AAA game buoyed by a constant stream of updates and content.
New MMO game Rift has had a few problems since launch, one of them being a percentage of user accounts having been compromised. Luckily, an ex-hacker has been able to help plug the leak.
