Defiance – GAME Lock-In

GAME has teamed up with Namco Bandai and Trion Worlds to offer another free lock-in for the massive online shooter Defiance.

Defiance is the first multi-platform massive online shooter video game. The third person shooter interconnects with a global television program on Syfy by the same name for a ground-breaking entertainment experience. The game combines the intense action of a third-person shooter, with the persistence and scale of a massive online game, while its TV counterpart exudes the scope, story, and drama of a classic sci-fi epic. We like the live action trailer the most so we’ve included it below for your viewing pleasure.

GAME is giving you a chance to get hands-on with Defiance with another lock-in before it’s general release in early April. But not only that, all the lock-in players will take home with them a beta access key so you can continue your adventure as ‘Ark Hunters’ during the Defiance online beta from March 21st. There will also be food and refreshments to keep you going (gaming and food – what’s not to want). Check out the table below for participating stores.

17th March Sheffield Evolution, The Plaza, 8 Fitzwillian Street S1 4JL
18th March Manchester Walkabout, 13 Quay Street M3 3HN
19th March Birmingham Walkabout, Langley Building, Regency Wharf, 266a-271 Broad Street B1 2DS
