The hit Syfy TV drama Defiance is set to premiere its third season starting tonight in the U.S., with worldwide debuts in Canada, France, Spain, Brazil, Germany, Australia, Latin America, and the UK from June 13-25. The series shares its universe and storylines with the titular MMO by Trion Worlds, interweaving game and show to create a multi-platform experience.
Season three explodes into action following the cliff-hanger ending to season two, introducing new cast members Nichole Galicia (Django Unchained, Wish I Was Here), Conrad Coates (The Strain, Nikita), and Lee Tergesen (American Horror Story, Oz). Following the collapse of their lucrative mines, the citizens of Defiance turn their attention to an impending military siege. But the surprise arrival of the Omec – a nearly extinct race of alien warriors with a brutal history and unknown agenda – threatens all.
Each TV episode will air a unique, limited-time code that can be redeemed for free game loot or bonuses at Defiance.com/EGO. Players who tune in and collect all 12 codes over the course of the season will complete an additional game achievement for special rewards.
