Defiance contest offers crossover cameo on Syfy TV show
Ever wanted to appear in a cable TV show? Then Defiance has the in-game contest for you.
Trion Worlds announced that Defiance MMOFPS players have a chance to appear in an episode of the Defiance TV show now airing on the Syfy channel – but of course, as with all things cool, you need to work hard for it.
The competition for boob tube fame begins April 30 12:00am PDT and lasts until May 12 11:59pm PDT. During this period, ark hunters will compete to earn the most ark salvage per hour during their time played over the course of the contest. (The tally excludes ark salvage from the Salvage Matrix.)
To join, players must formally register at the official website (http://www.defiance.com/most-wanted), plus complete both “Most Wanted” pursuits. Players can access the pursuits via the “Goals section” of the game menu.
Winners of the contest will get a cameo spot, and follow in the footsteps of Nolan & Irisa, the two lead characters in the Defiance TV show that were imported from the game lore.
Trion Worlds said this is just a taste of more transmedia events that will introduce new missions, pursuits and storylines connecting the MMO and TV show. Crossover events will be announced through the usual media channels, as well as the Defiance newsletter, so players should keep their eyes peeled for future competitive casting calls.
