    Taken from the description on IGN

    The visionary open-world shooter MMOG Defiance serves as a companion to the tandem television show on Syfy. In an entertainment first, the game and show will influence and depend on each other, and even feature some players' characters on the TV shows as extras.
    Set on a future Earth, Defiance introduces players and viewers to a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet transformed by decades of conflict. The game combines the intense action of a 'AAA' console shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart weaves the rich tapestry of the world into a series with the scope, characters, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic. Because they exist in a single universe, the show and the game will influence each other and evolve together over time, with actions in both mediums driving the overall story of Defiance.
    Hopefully that helps

    I got it today, and I'm very happy with the purchase, I feel like I'm going to spend a lot of hours in this game. Graphics are really good for a mmo, there's a lot of people playing it, but it doesn't interfere with doing quests and stuff, didn't do pvp yet, focusing on quests and getting some good guns

    People fear what they can't understand, hate what they can't conquer

    It's an MMO so yes. Now if you mean is it only PVP, then no.

    The game is only online, there's no open world pvp, it's like open world coop, and there's ton of people playing it, you can also go to battlegrounds which are like pvp matches, Tdms and stuff, you cannot play this game offline

    From what I read and watched it looks really promising. I'm going to pick it up soon as pay day comes around. I've never played an MMO before but this just sparked my interest. Plus its F2P, no subscription costs which is cool.
