Pre-order Defiance and get your alien apocalypse on

With Syfy's Defiance set to premiere in a matter of weeks (April 15 at 9/8c, to be exact), a lot of folks are waiting to see how the first universe to exist simultaneously as a TV show and an online game is going to work. Those with a particularly itchy trigger finger now have the opportunity to get in on the action, as pre-orders are being accepted for the massively multiplayer shooter from Trion. But it's not just about the peace of mind that comes with knowing you'll be one of the first to explore the post-apocalyptic frontier - there are goodies, too.

Those who take the early plunge will get access to a bunch of bonus perks, including special character clothing and weaponry, XP boosts and an in-game vehicle: The Dodge Challenger. And if you're going to take your digital life in your hands, be sure to use the arkfall hunter code "WBIEos" to earn even more special rewards when you play. Hey, in an apocalypse, you need all the help you can get. Socrates said that.
