A new trailer from Syfy and Trion Worlds for the recently released third-person MMO shooter, Defiance, has made it onto the netwaves and it features the music from composer Bear McCreary, a name that might resonate well within the niches of geek culture as the man behind the music for Battlestar Galactica.
The interesting thing about that trailer is that as a promo trailer it's fairly decent but the music to the game – or at least the theme – is actually pretty good. It's something that could get hit with a combo from the “replay” button every once in a while.
The trailer comes on the heels of the official release of the game, which comes ahead of the television show's debut in two weeks.
I have no idea if the expense of tying a TV show and a game in together will be worth the venture but it's at least something different...right?
The third-person shooter is a one-time-fee purchase that gains you access to an ever-changing, ever-evolving MMO with plenty of DLC to boot. Some of the things that happen in the show will affect the game and some of the stuff that happens in the game will affect the TV show. Hopefully the game won't be riddled with too many microtransactions or else they could easily lose as many players just as quickly as they gain them.
