Last week some images for the new Syfy series Defiance were released and I decided to share some concept art for the series.
Defiance is an upcoming science fiction television series by Rockne S. O'Bannon. The series is being produced along with a Defiance MMO video game by Trion Worlds. Defiance is about Grant Bowler (Jeb Nolan), the local lawman in an alien Votan refugee camp known as "Defiance" on top of the ruins of present-day St. Louis.
Check after the jump for more concept art along with descriptions from the Facebook page.
"Inside the NeedWant: Whether your night is winding down or just getting started, Defiance's favorite local bar has everything you need - and everything you want." Kenya Rosewater (Mia Kirshner).
"Doc Yewell's Office: Not your typical doctor's office. Then again, Doc Yewell (Trenna Keating) isn’t your typical doctor."
"Lawkeeper: Nobody ever said establishing law and order in Defiance would be glamorous."
"Acting as a both living transport and ultimate threat, the Hellbug Hellion is a monstrous behemoth with an insatiable appetite for gulanite."
"You may recognize this guy from recent demos. He's calls himself a 99er and works the mines in Marin. What do you think it would take for you to bring him down?"
"The grand Golden Gate Bridge has defied the cataclysmic force of terraforming and the destructive powers of an era of war to still stand as the primary span into the wasteland of San Francisco."
"Of all the Votan races to have immigrated to Earth, the Irathients have adapted best, using their affinity with nature and tribal warfare tactics to thrive in the most dangerous frontiers of Earth."
"The Votanis Collective's highly destructive SRL (Spread Rocket Launcher) design has been reproduced by frontier manufacturers for sale to all."
"Refurbished ships have become the primary trade lifeline to many coastal frontier towns and are prized targets for hordes of Raiders."
From Syfy and Trion Worlds comes a revolution in entertainment: Powerful scripted drama and a massive online world, united for the very first time. Set on a transformed Earth in the near future, events in the show will impact the game, and players will impact the show, creating an unprecedented immersive experience.
