Daniel Craig Trion Worlds must be happy.
Within one month of release Defiance has gathered over one million registered users across all platforms. Rift, Trion Worlds' other MMO, similarly broke into the seven digits within weeks of launch. Unsurprisingly, both games had launches that are regarded as smooth by MMO standards. While other companies have struggled to have one solid launch, Trion Worlds has managed to do it two times in a row.
Defiance is a tie-in to the Syfy show of the same name which released two weeks after the game. Both are set in the future with sci-fi elements and a complex plot. Although the game released to underwhelming reception (as did the show), it's one of a very select few MMOs available to play on consoles. It follows recent trends with a $59.99 box price with no subscription fee, but a controversial cash shop is present.
Trion Worlds will continue to expand following the success of Rift and is hard-at-work on End of Nations, an MMORTS game exclusive to PCs. I doubt it'll stop there at this point.
