Explosive Defiance trailer warns: Get ready for an alien assault!

The more we see of Syfy’s epic new series Defiance, the more intrigued we are. The latest trailer shows an alien assault in the making, and one thing's for sure—this project promises to be a true FX extravaganza.

Combining a television show and video game set in the same universe, Defiance follows humans and aliens on a post-invasion Earth. It's loaded with action and intrigue, not to mention a shared universe between mediums that could make for a pretty expansive experience.

The series premieres on April 15, but the game hits shelves a few weeks before that on April 2. Digital and physical editions of the game are available for pre-order now.

The latest trailer peels back a few more layers on Syfy’s biggest gamble of the 2013 season and we can’t wait to see how this battle actually plays out. The series stars Grant Bowler (True Blood), Julie Benz (Dexter), Jaime Murray (Warehouse 13), Tony Curran (Blade II), Stephanie Leonidas (Mirrormask) and Graham Greene (Dances with Wolves).
