SyFy launches TV ad for Defiance

SyFy, the channel that is home to shows like Battlestar Galactica, launched its first commercial for its upcoming sci-fi drama, Defiance, which shares a universe with the massively multiplayer online game of the same name by Trion Worlds.

Defiance – the game and the TV show – was announced at E3 this year, with Rift developer Trion Worlds announcing their ambitious goal to weave the narrative of the action sci-fi game and the TV drama.

The TV ad for SyFy's drama shows a terraformed Earth set 35 years into the future and explores the alien-infested St Louis as its inhabitants struggle to live with their extraterrestrial neighbours.

Polygon's E3 coverage of Defiance can be viewed here.
