Play Defiance until you make it on the show.
If you've ever wanted a character you created to be in a TV show, now's your chance. Trion Worlds, developer of the MMO Shooter Defiance, and SyFy, creators of the accompanying TV show of the same name, have announced the "Play The Game. Join The Show." contest. The contest will allow Defiance players to compete in in-game events, and the winner will have their character written straight on to the second season of the show.
To compete, players must take part in Major Arkfall events in Defiance between July 8 and July 30. The ten players who complete the most events will each get their character's story fleshed out by a member of the Defiance TV show's writing staff.
Once all ten are ready, they'll be posted on Defiance's Facebook page and the community will choose their five favorites. From those five, the Defiance team will then select the winner, who will appear on the show.
Wile this contest is very unique, this isn't the first time Trion and SyFy have teamed up to put a gamer on TV. They previously held a similar contest called "Most Wanted" where players could compete in-game for the chance to have their likeness included on wanted posters in the show.
