The game was launched on 4/2/13 for the Xbox 360 and PS3 systems as well as the PC. While it hasn’t done incredibly well in comparison to other big budget games, it has managed to capture the attention of more than a million players spanning all platforms.
Defiance has gotten mostly decent reviews since its launch. Nearly all large review sites gave the game a 60% rating (or 5. 5 to 6 out of 10). This essentially means that the game isn’t awful but it isn’t awesome either.
The television show has also gotten moderate reviews but has maintained decent enough ratings on the Syfy network to be renewed for a second season.
