Defiance Hands-On Preview | The Most Ambitious Cooperative Shooter Ever? [Dealspwn]

Dealspwn writes: "Ambitious" seems too small and simple a word to describe Defiance. Its mission is outlandish, its scope unprecedented. Not only does Trion Worlds plan to deliver an enormous cross-platform MMO that connects thousands of simultaneous players, with the depth of an RPG and the tight mechanics of a big-budget third person shooter, but the events of the game will feed back into a simultaneously broadcast television show spanning multiple seasons. Two forms of entertainment will conspire to create a single universe, driven by players and actors alike, on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and the Syfy Channel.

"Ambitious" isn't the word. "Insane" might be closer to the mark.

We've yet to find out whether the trans-media connection will deliver, but after spending an entire day playing the game, it's clear that Trion are doing their damndest to deliver cooperative action gameplay on a truly unprecedented scale. (Defiance, PC)
