FTG Writes: Massive multiplayer games have had a rough history when it comes to being science fiction based. It is as if they are always grasping for the straws of what is left over from the fantasy crowd. We’ve seen Anarchy Online come about and build a massive fan base for its time, but bleed out almost entirely, even after going free to play. Star Wars: The Old Republic was much the same – a concept that drew in millions, failed to hold them because of a lack of content. So is there ever going to be a sliver of hope for a science fiction MMO? Trion Worlds is trying to test that theory with Defiance.
