If you've been watching the Syfy show "Defiance", you are aware that Rynn has escaped. For now, she will not be seen on the show. However, players of Trion Worlds' Defiance will be able to defeat the Hellbug swarm in an effort to return Rynn to the show. Developers are calling this a true transmedia event.
4 new emergencies will be added to the world, but only during this event. In each of the emergencies, the player will be fighting against the new elemental versions of the hellbugs while trying to accomplish a task for Rynn:
- "Exotic Goods" : Brave a thriving hellbug nest to harvest chrysalis samples for Varus
- "A New Pair of Genes" : Take on a Monarch in order to collect samples of his DNA for Rosa and Eren.
- "Smells Like Victory" : Harvest samples straight from pheromone secretors for Von Bach
- "Thinning the Herd" : Help a group of Echelon Mercs clear out a Hellbug Nest to assist Cass in purging the land of this menace.
The month of May will see players working through a variety of new content to bring Rynn back to the show. You can read more on the Defiance site.
