Check out 1st thrilling teaser for TV/videogame hybrid Defiance

We've heard how Syfy and Trion's epic TV/videogame hybrid series Defiance will work, we've met the characters, and now it's time to see the world in action. The first brief teaser for this ambitious new series is here!

From the mind of Farscape creator Rockne S. O'Bannon, and with a cast that includes the likes of Mia Kirshner (24), Jaime Murray (Dexter), Tony Curran (The Pillars of the Earth), Stephanie Leonidas (MirrorMask), Julie Benz (Angel) and Grant Bowler (True Blood), Defiance will chronicle the world-changing events on Earth as seven alien races begin to move in on the planet, and the war that ensues when negotiations don't go so well.

But it's more than just a watching experience. Thanks to an immersive MMO designed by Trion Worlds, viewers will be able to go inside the universe of Defiance and make their own choices. It's an unprecedented blend of videogame action and TV drama that looks primed to create an incredible interactive experience.

Check out the teaser (which includes glimpses of both the show and the game) below.

Defiance comes to Syfy in 2013.
