There's a new Defiance game in the works

Trion again.

Defiance - the MMO that was also a pretty good sci-fi show - is getting another new lease of life from developer Trion Worlds.

Defiance 2050 will be free-to-play, just as the original Defiance game now is, and arrive later this year for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

A closed beta is coming soon, the game's official site says.

"Open world environments" and "massive co-operative battles" are promised. Here's a trailer:

The original Defiance TV show ran for three seasons between 2013 and 2015, while the tie-in MMO ran alongside with complementary plotlines.

But interest obviously dwindled after the telly series got cancelled - even though the MMO was then billed as its official continuation.

Defiance by name, defiance by nature - here's hoping this revival gets a decent chance.
