TRION AND SYFY ANNOUNCE "PLAY THE GAME. JOIN THE SHOW." CONTEST FOR "DEFIANCE" SEASON TWO

In-Game Character of Contest Winner Will Be Featured in Season Two of 'Defiance' TV Series

New York, NY and Redwood Shores, CA - July 8, 2013 - Syfy and Trion Worlds today announced a new contest that brings a gamer into the television world of Defiance, the groundbreaking online open world shooter and hit television series on Syfy. The "Play the Game. Join the Show." in-game contest pits players against the game's Arkfall events to see who can rise to the top and become the ultimate Ark Hunter. The winner's character will appear during the second season of the TV series.

The ten Ark Hunters who complete the most Major Arkfall events between July 8 (10am PDT) and July 30 (10am PDT) will compete for a chance to have their character written onto the show. These ten semifinalists will be fleshed out with backstories written by the show's writing staff, which will then be featured on Facebook, where Defiance fans will choose their five favorites. From this pool of five finalists, a member of the Defiance team will select the final winner to appear in season two of Defiance.

The "Play the Game. Join the Show." contest marks the second time that players have been invited to make their mark on the world of Defiance. Earlier in the year, Trion Worlds and Syfy ran the "Most Wanted" contest, which saw gamers competing to have their likeness included on wanted posters on an episode of the TV show.

To enter, players must register for the "Play the Game. Join the Show." contest at www.defiance.com/en/game-show-contest , then complete as many Major Arkfalls as possible between July 8 (10am PDT) and July 30 (10am PDT). Between August 12th and August 21st, one semifinalist backstory will be posted per day. Registered Facebook users can vote for the top five characters between August 26th (3am PDT) and September 6th (8:59pm PDT), and the final winner will be selected in September. Defiance season two premieres in 2014 on Syfy.
