Trion Worlds, the leading global developer and publisher of premium connected video games, and NAMCO BANDAI Games, leading video game publisher, developer and distributor, today announced they have signed a new agreement for the distribution of the anticipated massive open-world shooter Defiance™.
Following this agreement, the NAMCO BANDAI Group will distribute at retail in Europe, Middle-East, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand Defiance for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system and PC in April 2013.
Defiance is an immersive online open-world shooter for console and PC set in a future shattered Earth. A revolutionary transmedia experience, the game will launch alongside the original Syfy TV show Defiance, with events from each impacting the other’s evolution. The game combines the intense action of a console third-person shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic.
John Burns, SVP and GM Trion Worlds Europe, said: “We’re delighted to be working with NAMCO BANDAI, a great company with a proven track record in bringing big games successfully to the market thanks to their great distribution network and excellent relationship with both high-street and online retailers.”
“We are really looking forward to collaborate with Trion Worlds, a very dynamic company which develops high-quality and successful massively social games, on such an ambitious and exciting project which is Defiance” added Olivier Comte, Senior Vice-President at NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe.
Defiance will be available on PlayStation®3, Xbox 360® and PC at retail in April 2013.
