Trion Worlds recently invited the press corps to come to San Francisco to check out Defiance, the ambitious MMO being developed in conjunction with the Syfy Network. We've got a hands on report from that event as well as a first-ever game play video. Don't miss it!
Jumping into the gameplay, we were given the chance to create characters and take some of Defiance's gameplay modes for a spin. Character creation was relatively robust for such an early build of the game, offering the two races of Human and Irathient, four Ark Hunter "Origins," which unlock special abilities for your character from the get-go, and several cosmetic customization options. I chose to be an Irathient, because aliens. I then picked the Survivalist Origin, rather than the other three of Machinist, Outlaw, and Soldier, so that I could toy around with the Cloak stealth ability.
