“Defiance” centers on aliens and humans living together on Earth 30 years from now. The two species struggle to build a society amid devastation after an epic war.

The show and the game will influence each other and evolve together. If, for example, the game warns of an invasion, “then the show will reference that battle in the following episode.”

Starcom MediaVest Group says ” ‘Defiance’ is a groundbreaking paradigm that links both media [types] and allows brands to be more immersive than they could be as part of TV or a video game alone.”
