Defiance, the underdog mmo of 2013?

I personally believe Defiance will be alot like RIFT in terms of marketing. It will be quiet right up until a month before release. People will flock to something new and mysterious. We alreadt have TESO (if it stays on track) More GW2 updates, Rift updates, and so on. I believe Defiance will steal the year if Trion can produce a quality game (which they already have with Rift and EoN) Mark my word people this is the mmo to look out for next year.

    I just hope they get the pricing right, it's always quite risky to enter this market. I'll definitely be giving it a whirl though :) I just love the concept so much.

    I think that it is a pretty safe bet that Defiance will be huge - Trion has been working closely with SyFy for years to get this one done right - so at least I think the game will be sweet, and from having played it first hand to me it's a must get. Huge open world to PvE and PvP in, lots of armor and gear upgrades, lots of skills, dungeons, dynamic multi step alien invasions, and it is still a pixel perfect shooter (something that Firefall is not). Yeah, there has not been a game like this yet.

    now as far as the show goes, I will watch it, I hope it turns out good - apparently it's the most expensive SyFy project ever, so at least they are investing millions into it. Hey at least it's done by the folks who did Farscape and Battlestar Galactica, so lots of experience there.

    I do not know if I am well informed or something, but I would not call this a sleeper hit. I see stuff about this all the time, maybe I should stop watching the SYFY channel. With promotion of the tv series they also promote the game. So, it tends to show up alot. Either way, I agree that you are correct that this will hit the hype train hard and either be a great game or a major failure. For me it is to early to tell. I wish them luck as I continue to wait and see! image
