Trion Worlds announced that Defiance has reached 1 million registrations since releasing one month ago. The company further announced that players have killed over 500 million hellbugs, driven 50 million virtual miles on the game’s ATVs and battled across 1 million fallen alien artifact treasure troves known as Arkfalls.
“We’re incredibly proud that after five years of development, we are bringing this ambitious project to life,” said Trion’s Nathan Richardsson. “The game launch is just the beginning of a truly unique entertainment experience.”
Defiance is a cross media tie-in with the Syfy TV show of the same name. The first episode of Defiance was the network’s most-watched scripted premiere since 2006.
