Defiance is the first convergence of a TV program and a massively multiplayer game. The program follows the events in the town of Defiance, built on the remains of St. Louis, after the Earth is devastated by alien terraforming devices and a war between the humans and the races of the Votanis Collective. Now years later, the stranded Votans and the humans live together in an uneasy peace, working for the meager resources still available.
The game takes place simultaneously in the area of San Francisco. Events in one can influence the other.
Season Two is currently filming in Toronto and will air in 2014.
