Trion Worlds has launched a brand new, viral website for Von Bach Industries, the leading manufacturer of advanced weaponry and technology in the world of Defiance. On the website, it has been announced that Von Bach Industries is currently accepting Ark Hunter Recruits, so if you're looking to work with VBI's partners at Trion Worlds, and beta test the upcoming shooter Defiance, this is your opportunity.
Arriving at the office this morning, from Von Bach Industries themselves, was a small metallic briefcase containing our first debriefing as an Ark Hunter Recruit. In this briefcase, we received a pen that separates at the middle to expose the USB drive within. Upon inserting the drive into our PC, we uncovered a handful of videos that shed some more light on who Von Bach is and just exactly what is expect of us as Ark Hunters. As it turns out, the company and website are part of the world of Defiance. Von Bach Industries produces advanced weapons and technologies and is at the forefront of Votan-hybrid weaponry, enabling Ark Hunters to salvaged more and more useful technology from the Arkfall.
In our world, this means that Trion Worlds is ready to accept applications for the Defiance beta. If you're not familiar with the game, Defiance is an upcoming first-person shooter/television show hybrid. The game takes the form of an MMOFPS, currently in development at Trion Worlds - the studio behind the popular MMO Rift. As for the other side of things, SyFy Channel will be broadcasting an original series of the same name that follows the same events of the game. Both mediums will parallel each other with events from the show impacting the core storyline in the game.
It is an ambitious project and one that we are really excited to see more of. Today's video drop and website are the sort of thing we love, and give us some insight into the type of world that we can expect to be a part of in Defiance.
Take a look at some of the videos below and visit FPS General on YouTube for the rest of the videos we received this morning. Stay tuned for more on Defiance!
